CareFusion Corporation Key Developments

CareFusion Receives Two 510(k) Clearances for Spine Products

CareFusion, a BD company announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared two 510(k)s for its spine augmentation devices. The new 13-gauge AVAmax Vertebral Balloon system expands the company's offerings in devices to treat vertebral compression fractures. The balloon fits down a 13-gauge cannula, which has a cross-sectional area that is 37% smaller than the 11-gauge cannula and 50% smaller than the 10-gauge cannula. The smaller size creates a smaller access point, resulting in less trauma than larger cannulas. This will be the smaller straight-line vertebral balloon in the industry to date, enabling vertebral augmentation higher in the spine than with current offerings. The 13-gauge balloon will be offered in 10mm, 15mm and 20mm lengths. The new 11-gauge AVAflex Vertebral Balloon System will enable targeted balloon placement across the midline of the vertebral body through a unipedicular, lateral approach, but higher in the spine through a smaller cannula than current products. The AVAflex needle then allows targeted cement placement for an optimal fill. Once commercially available, the 11-gauge AVAflex balloon will be the smallest curved balloon in the industry and will also have the benefits of a smaller access point and less trauma to the patient. The 11-gauge AVAflex will be available in 15mm, 20mm and 30mm lengths.
