MIAMISBURG, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--X-spine Systems, Inc., a global medical device manufacturer of class-leading products for spinal surgery, announces the market launch of its USFDA-cleared, Irix-A™ Lumbar Integrated Fusion System.
Irix-A™ represents the latest generation of X-spine lumbar fusion technology. Incorporating state of the art biomaterials and manufacturing processes, Irix-A™ combines a polymer body with an integrated titanium ring for added strength and durability, a titanium plasma coating of bone-apposing surfaces and a resilient locking mechanism for screw fixation. Irix-A™ is implanted in an anterior approach at one or two contiguous levels of the lumbosacral spine (L2-S1 inclusive).
Irix-A™ is the second addition to the Irix™ integrated interbody device family following Irix-C™ Cervical Integrated Fusion System. The integrated titanium ring in the Irix™ systems has been tested as providing two times the torsional strength compared to standard PEEK implants.
“Irix-A™ strengthens the standalone interbody market through proprietary technology,” states Dr. David Kirschman, President and CEO of X-spine. “X-spine first launched titanium plasma coated implants in 2011, and will continue to expand product offerings with these technologies. The titanium plasma coating serves to improve resistance to device expulsion.”
X-spine will be exhibiting Irix-A™ along with its complete line of spinal devices and biologics at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Meeting in Las Vegas, March 24-28.
