The US FDA has granted 510(k) clearance for NovaBone Products' Putty MIS delivery system, for use during minimally-invasive orthopaedic procedures. It is designed to precisely deliver bone putty to the surgical site, including the extremities, pelvis or posterolateral spine. The device comprises a syringe preloaded with the firm's Putty bone graft substitute and 6mm-diameter cannulae of varying lengths. Jacksonville, Florida-based NovaBone plans to launch a "number of new products this year and through 2011".
