MiRus Gets FDA’s 510(K) Clearance for Its IO Expandable Lumbar Interbody

September 2, 2021

Marietta, Ga.-based MiRus has received the FDA’s 510(k) clearance for its IO expandable lumbar interbody, a rhenium-based superalloy implant.

Superalloys of rhenium, which is one of the rarest elements found in nature, are frequently used in manufacturing components for jet engines. 

The MiRus implant features a low, 4 mm insertion profile, expandability to 18 mm and a 24-degree lordosis, so it can be inserted through the transforaminal openings through which nerve roots exit the spine.
