Orthofix received FDA 510(k) clearance to market the FORZA® XP Expandable Spacer for posterior and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion. U.S. limited launch will commence immediately.
Unlike the incremental expansion offered by other expandables, FORZA XP is designed to give continuous, controlled expansion that is followed by an automatic locking feature. Bone graft (such as Trinity ELITE® allograft) is packed in following implantation.
Other devices in the FORZA line include a PEEK Titanium Composite spacer with 3D-printed titanium endplates for use in lumbar spinal fusion.
