K2M received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market the MESA 2 Deformity Spinal System.

MESA 2 is the company's next-generation pedicle screw system designed to address complex spinal pathologies. It features the next-generation MESA 2 screw — a top-loading, low-profile screw that offers a dual-lead thread pattern for fast insertion.

 

"I am excited about MESA 2," said Laurel C. Blakemore, MD, chief and associate professor of pediatric orthopedics at the University of Florida in Gainesville. "Compared to its predecessor, MESA 2's dual-lead thread provides the opportunity for quicker screw insertion and the on/off button on the Crickets provide an easier way for the Crickets to latch on to the MESA head to help save time during correction."
