The FDA provided 510(k) clearance for the Cygnus anterior cervical plate system from MiRus, reports News Medical.

Three insights:

1. The metal alloy in the plate allows the device to have a smaller footprint without detracting from performance.

2. Cygnus aims to cause less retraction and anterior vertebral body preparation in anterior cervical fusions, leading to reduced OR time and decreasing the risk of complications like dysphagia and dysphonia.

3. Last week MiRus received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Galileo spine alignment monitoring system.
