Altamonte Springs, FL, February 02, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Eden Spine (www.EdenSpine.com) announced today that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its new generation corpectomy device, the GIZA™.
The GIZA™ is an expandable titanium VBR, with rotatable endplates, that provide multiple angulation options by simple endplates rotation. It is intended to replace and fuse a collapsed, damaged, or unstable vertebral body due to a tumor or a fracture.
“Its beauty is its simplicity,” said Mourad Ben Mokhtar, head of Eden Spine’s R&D efforts. He added, "What we did with the GIZA™ is to create an intuitive spinal system designed to help the surgeon easily implant the device, swiftly adapting its height and its angulation to the patient’s characteristics, hence maximizing the chances of a positive clinical outcome.”
For Guillaume Viallaneix, Eden Spine’s CEO, “The approval of the GIZA™ by the FDA is another milestone in the company’s life cycle. The GIZA™ is patented, trademarked, CE Marked, and FDA approved. It enhances the company’s technological footprint and ideally positions Eden Spine for long-term growth. A key 2012 objective is to have the GIZA™ available clinically both in the United States and Internationally via a dedicated network of stocking distributors and strategic partners.”
