By Julie A. Vetalice

Implanet received FDA 510(k) clearance and CE Mark approval for Jazz Lock®, a band-shaped implant to treat degenerative spinal disorders, including cervical. Commercial launch is underway.

Jazz Lock replaces the mechanism’s locking screw and connecting rod with a polyester sublaminar braid platform.
