Written by Shayna Korol | October 03, 2018 | Print  |

ApiFix's Minimally Invasive Deformity Correction system has been used to treat more than 250 patients with progressive scoliosis.

Here are five things to know:

1. ApiFix also announced the six-year follow-up on the earliest patients treated with the MID-C technology.

2. The MIS posterior dynamic deformity correction system is designed to promote permanent curve correction while retaining spine flexibility.

3. The system is intended to act as an "internal brace" and includes a unidirectional, self-adjusting rod mechanism with motion-preserving polyaxial joints allowing for additional noninvasive postoperative correction over time. The device is removable.

4. More than 100 patients treated with the device have undergone two-year follow-ups. While investigational in the U.S., the device is under review by FDA in a Humanitarian Device Exemption application.

5. The MID-C system has CE Mark approval.
