Each month, ORTHOWORLD examines updates to FDA's orthopaedic-related 510(k) database and highlights those products deemed strategic, defined as a company's first 510(k) clearance, first clearance in a segment that is new to the company, clearance for a type of device not formerly marketed by a company, etc.
In the following list, companies receiving a first orthopaedic-related 510(k) are denoted with an asterisk. Additional information on select devices is available via links. (For listings with two companies named, the first is the company of record in FDA's database.)
