SpineSource acquires French medical device technology


SpineSource has acquired the intellectual property assets of two spinal implant systems from Kisco International (France).

The acquisition includes the L-VARLOCK expandable lumbar cage which SpineSource has marketed, sold and distributed in the United States since 2016. The acquisition also includes other unique medical devices that SpineSource plans to submit to FDA for potential clearance later this year.

With the use of supplemental fixation, the L-VARLOCK expandable lumbar cage provides spine surgeons an interbody fusion device which can be expanded from any range of zero to 24.5° of angle, and from zero to 7.1 mm of expansion within the disc space.

SpineSource was founded in 2004, becoming the exclusive distributor for Ulrich Medical GmbH and then was a founder of Ulrich Medical USA in 2007. In 2008, SpineSource launched expandable PEEK and articulating interbody fusion devices from Advanced Medical Technologies, AG which was acquired by Medtronic in 2012.
