Minimally invasive firm Vexim (Toulouse, France) has announced that its 6.5-mm spinal implant has received CE Mark approval. The implant, which, incidentally, looks something like a miniature car jack, is used to treat vertebral compression fractures and is available in a standard diameter of 5 mm.
The company had announced in June that it had added 6.5-mm diameter as well as a 4.2-mm diameter sizes to its SpineJack lineup, enabling the devices to accommodate a larger variety of vertebra sizes.
“[The 6.5 mm implant] constitutes an essential milestone for rolling out our pre-sales strategy in Europe with a range of target populations,” explained Vexim CEO Bruce de la Grange in a press release. “The CE Mark guarantees that our technology has the levels of reliability and safety that our customers demand and expect from us.”
