Lateral Access System

The Ravine Lateral Access System is a dual flat blade platform for a true muscle-splitting transpsoas approach, offering rigid fixation to the spine and an option for both a third and fourth blade. With its ability to fixate directly to the spine, Ravine effectively does away with a traditional table-mounted arm by actually referencing the patient. This system represents an innovative design departure from the tubular retractors, while providing adaptability to both patient anatomy and surgeon technique.
