similar to that prior to the fracture following a minor percutaneous surgical
procedure of approximately 30 minutes.
The patient is sent home shortly after the operation following the recovery of
his or her functional abilities, thus regaining a better quality of life.

Vexim has always led a very active R&D policy with the support of their
longstanding shareholder, Truffle Capital that has been a key player in the
company’s growth with the preparation, launch and success of their IPO. Vexim
has a comprehensive range of SpineJack® implants enabling 95% of vertebral
compression fractures to be treated and is carrying on its research program to
create new solutions for other spinal pathologies.
