RAVINE® 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 the necessity of a traditional table-mounted arm by actually referencing the patient. K2M’s lateral access system represents an innovative design departure from the tubular retractors, while providing tremendous adaptability to both patient anatomy and surgeon technique.
