Nanovis Spine receives FDA 510(k) clearance of its FortiBridge cervical plating system


Nanovis Spine, has announced the launch of the company’s FortiBridge cervical plate system. The company says that the FortiBridge cervical plates allow for high angulation screw placement with a smooth, oesophagus-friendly profile. The system offers a full range of short and long sizes in either steam sterilisable or individually sterile packaging formats.

A company press release notes that FortiBridge cervical plates are designed to complement the Nanovis’ FortiCore cervical interbody implant system. FortiCore implants are different from other interbody implants because of FortiCore’s deeply porous titanium scaffold. Furthermore, PEEK Optima by Invibio is injection moulded into the scaffold for “exceptional” integration, while the PEEK centre gives the implant the imaging and mechanical properties preferred by surgeons.

Nanovis has three advanced technology platforms, the FortiCore platform, an advanced nanotechnology platform, and an anti-colonisation and antimicrobial implant platform. “The launch of the FortiBridge cervical plate system as a partner to our FortiCore cervical interbodies is another important step in Nanovis’ mission to lead our chosen markets with science-enhanced implants that improve lives,” said Matt Hedrick, Nanovis’ chief executive officer.
