DePuy Synthes Partners with Expanding Innovations for Expandable Cage Distribution

DePuy Synthes entered into an agreement to distribute Expanding Innovations' X-Pac Expandable Lumbar Cage in the U.S.

The X-Pac Expandable Lumbar Cage’s expansion mechanism provides controlled expansion of both height and lordosis to allow for intra-operative adjustment depending on the patient’s anatomy to meet their clinical needs. A differentiated lock ramp-feature built into the cage endplates leaves a large available graft space inside the cage for post graft packing. These benefits can enable surgeons to tailor treatment options for patients undergoing spinal fusion surgery.

Russell Powers, Worldwide President, DePuy Synthes Spine, said, “This next generation technology is well aligned with our robust portfolio and continued commitment to improve minimally invasive surgery, and we look forward to bringing this important innovation forward as a new option for patients.”
