MIS spine specialist SpineGuard® has added a Bevel-Cannulated iteration to its clever PediGuard® guided pedicle screw placement range.
SpineGuard has received FDA 510(k) clearance of three new products that complete its PediGuard platform of single-use drilling instruments which secure the pedicle screw pilot hole: Two miniaturized versions of its classic and curved range, and a directional version of its cannulated series.
SpineGuard, the company with the stated mission of making spinal surgery safer, has announced that data accepted by Spine and published ahead-of-print online demonstrates that the Company’s PediGuard® device reduces spine surgeons’ radiation exposure from fluoroscopy by 30% while maintaining a 97.5% accurate placement of pedicle screws during lumbar spine fusion.
SpineGuard has announced that the 20,000th case has been performed using its family of PediGuard devices for enhanced pedicle screw placement. The PediGuard product line includes Cannulated PediGuard, Curved PediGuard, and Classic PediGuard.
SpineGuard, a French medical device start-up, announced today that it has raised a first funding round of $11 million with Crédit Agricole Private Equity (lead), Innoven Partenaires (co-lead), and A Plus Finance.
It seems that making spine surgery safer is quite a lucrative business
