Alphatec will be showcasing its broad portfolio of spinal fusion products, including the Company's newest spinal fusion products:

Alphatec Spinal Fusion Technologies Technical Exhibit Booth #1523:

- Battalion Lateral Spacer System and Squadron Lateral Retractor: The Battalion Lateral Spacer System with the Alphatec Squadron Lateral Retractor provides surgeons with a next-generation lateral system with unrivaled, unique design characteristics - total blade control technology that allows the surgeon to maintain approach aperture throughout the procedure, including in-situ blade height adjustment and blade replacement, combined with the Battalion Lateral Spacer will be available in 0°and 15° lordosis with a variety of width and height options for lumbar and thoracic approaches.

- XYcor Expandable Spinal Spacer System: The XYcor system provides surgeons with a minimally invasive inspired solution for PLIF and TLIF procedures by utilizing a smaller, more compact ALIF sized implant that can accommodate a variety of patient pathologies. The system provides nearly five times the amount of bone graft potential compared to standard PLIF and TLIF cages.

- Arsenal Deformity Spinal Fixation System: The Arsenal Deformity System was thoughtfully designed to provide surgeons with a complete solution to address complex deformity pathologies. The system features unique uniplanar and monoaxial screws, providing the surgeon with easier screw positioning and rod placement through a tulip that has 360 degrees of rotation while restricting motion in the medial/lateral plane for derotation correction.
