HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Life Spine, a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spinal disorders, announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given 510(k) marketing clearance to the IRIS Anterior Cervical Plate System.

The IRIS Anterior Cervical Plate incorporates a low profile plate with a zero-step integrated nitinol locking mechanism. The system promotes tactile and visual confirmations of final screw placement while simplifying instrumentation for intraoperative techniques.

Rita K. Patel, Life Spine’s Director of Marketing stated, “The IRIS ACP System adds to our comprehensive portfolio of intuitive cervical plating systems. This system will minimize steps and surgical time while providing reassurance in screw placement.”

IRIS is the sixth anterior cervical plate system within Life Spine’s cervical platform, which already consists of three static systems (NEO®, NEO-SL, NEO-UL) and two internally dynamizing systems (KINETIC® and KINETIC-SL).
