Life Spine said yesterday it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Gruve anterior cervical plate system.
The Gruve plate allows for extreme bone screw angulation, large graft windows and a locking mechanism that provides tactile and visual confirmation of locking upon installation, Huntley, Ill.-based Life Spine said.
“Our comprehensive cervical portfolio reinforces Life Spine’s commitment to providing single-source, cohesive procedural solutions to our customers,” Life Spine sales exec veep Joe Loy said in a press release.
Life Spine said the Gruve will see a limited market release in early 2016 and a full release in the 2nd quarter.
Gruve offers 7 other cervical plating options, including 5 static systems and 2 internally dynamizing systems.
