Non-screw-based lateral cage system earns FDA approval

Spinal Tech

Spinal implant company Expanding Innovations has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its X-Pac Expandable Lateral Cage System, a non-screw-based implant that addresses the core principles of lateral lumbar interbody fusion. 

The product will be added to Expanding Innovations' existing product portfolio including the X-Pac Expandable Posterior Cage System. 

"The maximized posterior expansion facilitates indirect decompression, the open architecture ensures a bridging bone fusion, and the multiple lordotic options allow proper implant selection for restoration of sagittal balance," K. Brandon Strenge, MD, a surgeon at the Orthopedic Institute of Western Kentucky in Paducah, said in a Feb. 21 press release. "These benefits, coupled with the ability to insert the cage at a nominal height, then dial it up via controlled expansion, make X-PAC Lateral an exciting and beneficial technology to offer my patients moving forward."
