The Terra Nova® Minimally Invasive Access System is designed to be used with the Serengeti® Minimally Invasive Retractor System. This intramuscular approach features a spine- based method of retraction and distraction. This simplified, low-profile design provides enhanced visualisation and direct access to the intervertebral space for implant insertion via a unique Retractor Distractor Blade. This low-profile Retractor Distractor Blade offers optimal distraction for implant insertion. The Terra Nova also provides the ability to maintain distraction while simultaneously serving as a fixed point to medially retract tissue and muscle.
