Expanding Orthopedics has been granted CE mark for the FLXfit 15 expandable cage. The FLXfit 15 can expand up to 4mm and is designed to enable controlled lordosis correction of up to 15⁰. There are two linear length options; a 40mm and a 32mm version.
The higher range expansion is intended to enable surgeons to better treat their patients and restore lordosis angle up to 15. The 32mm length option will offer great flexibility in treating patients with smaller anatomies. According to a press release, this is the largest in-class transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion expandable cage in the minimally invasive spinal fusion market.
The FLXfit 15 is the subject of a pending USA Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510k application and is not available for sale in the USA.
