FDA 510(k) clearance for SEEplate cervical plate system


Amedica has announced that the FDA has granted 510(k) marketing clearance to Amedica’s SEEplate cervical plate system.

The SEEplate incorporates features that are aimed at allowing surgeons an alternative to confirming the secure placement of the anti-back-out mechanism of screws used as part of the spinal implant system. The SEEplate system is intended for anterior screw fixation of cervical spine from the C2 through C7 vertebral bodies of the spine as an adjunct to cervical spine fusion. The implant and related instruments are designed to facilitate greater modularity and to better suit patient anatomy and achieve a consistent supplemental fixation outcome for many indications including degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and failed prior spine fusion surgery.
