4WEB Medical, an orthopaedic device company focused on developing innovative implants utilising its proprietary Truss Implant Technology, has announced that the company has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its lumbar plating solution.
According to a company press release, the new plating solution consists of a wide variety of modular plating configurations to address multiple lumbar spine pathologies and approaches. 4WEB claim the device provides an integrated and non-integrated offering with a one, two and four screw option. The company further reports the plate design also features a single-step locking mechanism to prevent screw backout.
“Our continued commitment to new product development led to revenue growth in the financial year 2020 driven by the launch of the Stand Alone Cervical and anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) product lines,” said Jim Bruty, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing. “The lumbar plating solution will contribute significantly to 2021 top-line growth by enabling surgeon customers to utilise the company’s Truss Implant Technology in more advanced lateral procedures such as anterior longitudinal ligament release techniques.”
