Globus Medical launched Elsa AL and Elsa-ATP, two expandable interbody spacers with screw fixation.

Here are four insights.

1. Elsa AL is designed to help correct sagittal balance and improve stability. The system features adjustable lordotic technology that allows up to 30 degrees of lordosis while maintaining a minimally invasive surgery approach.

2. Elsa-ATP is designed to prevent nerve complications associated with the direct lateral technique by using an anterior-to-psoas approach. The system features angled integrated screws for direct fixation to the adjacent vertebrae.

3. The Elsa-ATP spacer is an interbody fusion device intended for use in patients with degenerative disc disease at one or two contiguous levels of the lumbosacral spine.

4. Globus Medical is a leader in expandable interbody spacers with more than 20 implant solutions over the past 15 years. The company's line of expandables has allowed physicians to treat more than 130,000 levels.
