Executive Summary

Vexim's SpineJack implant for treating vertebral compression fractures looks and works much like a car jack. Once inserted into a patient's vertebra through a minimally invasive procedure, the device ratchets up to restore an anatomically correct profile. SpineJack maintains height restoration until the load bearing is transferred to bone cement. So rather than merely treating back pain, the implant also restores the anatomical shape of the vertebra.

SpineAlign Medical Inc.

Patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures now have another alternative to vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty. The SpineAlign system from SpineAlign Medical Inc. uses a combination of cement and a permanent implant to elevate the vertebral endplates in parallel. In addition, the expandable metal device is composed of nitinol threaded at the end, so that a pedicle screw can be attached and locked into the system for a sturdy construct.
