Brau Anterior Lumbar

Thompson’s Brau Anterior Lumbar retractor blade kits feature:

  • Excellent exposure of the anterior lumbar spine, especially for ALIF or artificial disc procedures
  • Patented reverse lip prevents blade slippage
  • Low-profile, stable exposure
  • Reduced risk of vascular, nerve, and ureter injury

Brau Anterior Lumbar blades provide excellent exposure of the anterior lumbar spine, especially for ALIF or artificial disc procedures. The reverse lip on the retractor blades enable them to engage the vertebral body while protecting vascular structures. These unique radiolucent, titanium blades were designed by Salvador Brau, M.D., F.A.C.S. exclusively for Thompson Surgical Instruments.
