Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Self-centering transforaminal cage constructed from ECF PEEK®

The transforaminal cage with sophisticated guiding elements

The striking design attributes of KIMBA are its large contact surface, facilitating unvarying stability, the guiding elements on its surface and the self-centering guide nose.
KIMBA can be used in a conventional TLIF approach or an extraforaminal, muscular approach (EPLIF) based on the Magerl technique.

KIMBA is used in combination with posterior stabilization of spinal segments L1 to S1, in the following indications:

  • Mechanical instability
  • Disc prolapse
  • Spondylolisthesis (grade I and II)
  • Degenerative disc diseases
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Prolapse
