K2M's Chesapeake lumbar stabilisation system cleared in US

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Chesapeake, an anterior lumbar stabilisation system developed by spinal specialist K2M (Leesburg, Virginia), has received 510(k) clearance from the US FDA. The device is designed to stabilise the spine in patients suffering from disorders such as degenerative disc disease. The screws in the system use K2M's tifix locking technology, forming an autogenic lock to the implant upon insertion, which simplifies the implantation procedure. Chesapeake is made from the biocompatible Peek polymer.
