Carly Behm -  

Medtronic enrolled its first patient in a clinical trial for its Braive growth modulation system for scoliosis, according to a Sept. 22 news release.

The Braive IDE study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness in treating progressive adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The Braive system is Medtronic's latest pediatric spine device and uses a braid secured to the spine to slow the growth of the curved side of the spine.

The study will include patients in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom.
