X-spine Announces New FDA Clearance of Spinal Implant System


5/24/2010 11:02:44 AM

MIAMISBURG, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--X-spine, a global manufacturer of implants and instruments for spinal surgery, announced FDA clearance of its new Fixcet ™ Spinal Facet Screw System. The system is designed to provide spinal stability for lumbar fusion procedures, including the treatment of degenerative disk disease, instability and trauma.

“We are seeing an evolution to smaller spinal fixation procedures, including those being done on a short patient stay basis. Being a minimally invasive facet system, the Fixcet is ideal for such procedures where lumbar fusion needs to be performed with minimal tissue disruption”

The system incorporates a novel one-piece screw design which provides active compression of the facet joint and improved apposition of the facet surfaces compared to other systems. It can also be inserted through either a traditional open approach or a minimally invasive, wire-guided approach.

The Fixcet joins X-spine’s growing portfolio of spinal implant products, including the Spider Cervical™ plating system, the X90™ pedicle screw system, the Fortex™ pedicle screw system, the Calix ™ interbody fixation system, and the Butrex™ buttress plating system.
