Life Spine launched a new division called Centric Medical, after receiving FDA marketing clearance for its Tarsa-Link system for internal bone fixation of fractures, fusions, and osteotomies in the foot and ankle.
The Tarsa-Link device consists of a polyetheretherketone wedge with integral bone screws for procedures including surgeries for bunions and flat feet, according to a press release.
Huntley, Ill.-based Life Spine sells implants for spinal fusion surgery and other procedures.
In September the company announced FDA clearance for its Long Bow expandable lateral interbody system, which it touts as the 1st interbody device on the market that expands laterally in-situ specifically for a direct lateral approach.
Centric Medical plans a limited market release of Tarsa-Link in the current quarter and a broader product launch in early spring of 2015, according to the release.
