The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a new ICD-10 code for a radiolucent porous interbody fusion device, supporting Vertera Spine's COHERE cervical device. COHERE is the only clinically-available porous fusion device made from radiolucent plastic polyether ether ketone (PEEK). The code takes effect in October 2017.
COHERE received FDA 510(k) clearance in 3Q15, and first clinical use followed in 2Q16.
