Midline Choice

“Midline Choice” is LinkSPINE’s comprehensive midline fusion portfolio, which includes CorticaLINK and FacetLINK.  A single kit houses a complete array of screws and devices, offering the surgeon the ability to intra-operatively create a less invasive fusion construct based upon patient pathology, anatomy, or preference. Midline Choice offers the surgeon the most deep and versatile portfolio of less invasive fusion implants on the market. Learn more about Midline Choice


CorticaLINK is a complete platform of pedicle based fixation implants which can be used to stabilize the spine following a midline decompression. 
Depending upon preferred trajectory, the screws are available in (5) different diameters, lengths from 25mm – 60mm, and in cortical or cancellous thread form. Learn more about CorticaLINK


FacetLINK fulfills a desire for a simple, less invasive approach to lumbar surgery, adding true value for surgeons who are tiring of long learning curves.

The devices fit within the bounds of a surgeon’s preferred decompression exposure, requiring no additional dissection beyond what was planned for the decompression itself. 

FacetLINK matches the biomechanical performance of bilateral pedicle screws and rods(1), but can be placed through a much smaller exposure offering the possibility of reduced collateral tissue damage.
