Spinal fusion devices recommended for approval in the US

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Spine-Tech's BAK Interbody Fusion System and US Surgical's Ray Threaded Fusion Cage have been recommended for approval by the US FDA's orthopaedic and rehabilitation devices advisory panel. Members voted 7 to 1 in favour of both devices at their May 23rd meeting. Both devices are porous hollow cylinders which are inserted between two lumbar vertebrae and act as a conduit for new bone formation. The devices are intended to fuse the lumbar spine in patients suffering from degenerative disc disease.
