SafeWire, a medical device company focused on safety and cost efficiency in pedicle screw placement, announced that it has received CE mark certification to commercially release its line of Y-Wire Anchoring Guide Wires in Europe.
The Y-Wire, with its patented bifurcated tip, is designed to prevent inadvertent wire advancement and reduce the amount of fluoroscopy during MIS pedicle screw placement.
"Obtaining the CE Mark on our Y-Wire Anchoring Guide Wire line is a significant moment for our company as it allows us to plan for our market launch in Europe," said Wyatt Geist, CEO and founder of SafeWire.
"Receiving the CE MARK accreditation speaks volumes to our Quality Management Systems and the efforts of our entire team."
SafeWire will be demonstrating the design advantages of the Y-Wire at the annual North American Spine Society meeting in San Francisco, CA, from November 12-14.
SafeWire designs, develops, and markets unique surgical solutions for minimally invasive spine surgery.
