US-based Life Spine has received 510(k) marketing clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its IRIS Anterior Cervical Plate System (ACPS).
The IRIS ACPS comprises a low profile plate with a zero-step integrated nitinol locking mechanism.
The system promotes tactile and visual confirmations of final screw placement while simplifying instrumentation for intraoperative techniques.
Life Spine Marketing director Rita Patel said that the IRIS ACP System adds to the company’s comprehensive portfolio of intuitive cervical plating systems.
"This system will minimize steps and surgical time while providing reassurance in screw placement," Patel added.
IRIS is considered to be the sixth anterior cervical plate system within Life Spine’s cervical platform, which consists of three static systems and two internally dynamizing systems.
