The higher range expansion will enable surgeons to better treat their patients and restore lordosis angle up to 15 degrees. The 32mm length option will offer great flexibility in treating patients with smaller anatomies. The ability to deliver the largest, in-class, TLIF, expandable cage with 4mm height expansion and 15 degrees of lordosis correction through a small unilateral tube is a paradigm change in the minimally invasive surgical fusion market.
“Expandable cages are gaining market momentum and play a key role in successful MIS fusion procedures," said Ofer Bokobza, CEO of Expanding Orthopedics. "The FLXfit 3D expandable cage introduced a new paradigm with expandable cages and is already making a significant traction in the market place. We are thrilled with the release of the FLXfit15 as it represents our continued commitment for innovation and ability to deliver state-of-the-art spine fusion solutions. We believe that the versatility of the new FLXfit family will help EOI gain a greater share in the fusion surgery market both in MIS and open approaches.”
The FLXfit15 is the subject of a pending 510k application before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and is not available for sale in the United States.
Expanding Orthopedics Inc. develops and markets spine care products. The Atlanta, Ga.-based company is advised by a team of spine surgeons and owns a broad patent portfolio around anatomically fit, expandable devices for enhanced stability through a minimally invasive approach.
