Life Spine received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Hinged Laminoplasty System for treating spinal stenosis by enlarging the spinal canal.
The system includes a novel retaining screwdriver, which threads on to the screw head for a more secure and safe connection. The hinge was designed to allow for a custom fit for each patient and reduce the need for the surgeon to bend the plate during surgery.
The Hinged Laminoplasty System marks Life Spine’s fifth 510(k) this year. The firm is focused on products for minimally invasive spinal surgeries.
