US nod for Life Spine's cervical plate:
This article was originally published in Clinica
The Kinetic-SL, Life Spine's anterior cervical plating system, has gained 510(k) marketing clearance from the US FDA. The plate has an "exceptionally thin profile", the Hoffman Estates, Illinois firm claimed, along with a narrow plate width of 16mm. The device is designed to enable generous screw angulation, as well as a large graft window. An integrated lock allows bone screws to be fixed securely without any additional locking components. The self-retaining screw capture mechanism prevents screw backout, while still allowing screw angulation.
