CARLSBAD, Calif, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aurora Spine Corporation (“Aurora Spine” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ASG) (OTCQB: ASAPF), a designer and manufacturer of innovative medical devices that improve spinal surgery outcomes, today announced that it had received FDA 510(k) clearance for its DEXA SOLO-L™ spinal fusion system. The 3D printed standalone anterior lumbar interbody fusion device (ALIF) was developed as part of the world’s first bone density matched implant based on Aurora’s patented DEXA Technology Platform.
The DEXA SOLO-L, part of the DEXA Technology Platform, is a standalone device for anterior and lateral lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF & LLIF) procedures and is the first of its kind device for lumbar spine in the world. It is also the first color-coded, bone-mimicking™ structure implant in the marketplace and will help doctors match the implant to the patents bone quality and density.
A recently published, peer-reviewed research article can be viewed at https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34934366 and demonstrated the need for bone quality and density spinal implants. Reviewing the history of spinal implants the authors concluded that patients’ bone quality has not been previously used to guide manufacturing. Aurora’s DEXA implants are the first in the world to match a patient’s bone density and quality to a personalized implant. The DEXA-L product line follows the recently released DEXA-C cervical implant product line.
Mr. Trent Northcutt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Aurora Spine, stated, “We are thrilled to receive this new approval for our DEXA SOLO-L device, the world’s first patented and FDA-cleared, color-coded ALIF standalone device. This clearance is an important step to gain new surgeon customers and new sales distribution opportunities nationwide to drive more revenue .”
Mr. Laszlo Garamszegi, Chief Technology Officer of Aurora Spine, added, “This FDA clearance is a another significant achievement for our R&D team. The DEXA SOLO-L approval demonstrates our unwavering commitment to game-changing innovation around our entire bone mimicking DEXA Technology Platform. We will continue developing proprietary products to strengthen our product offerings, and build off our patent portfolio, especially our patented DEXA Technology Platform.”
