Amedica Corporation Receives FDA Clearance for Additional Valeo II Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion Device Offerings

Amedica Corporation announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance of expanded Valeo II Lateral Lumbar sizes. The additional sizes of the Valeo II LL interbody fusion device will be commercially available August 29, 2016. The Valeo II LL interbody fusion device is made entirely of Amedica's proprietary medical grade silicon nitride ceramic - an ideal material for fusion, due to its inherent osteoconductivity, anti-infective properties, bone-like imaging (artifact-free &radiotranslucent), and exceptional strength. The system includes second generation instrumentation to improve patient safety and surgeon ease of use. The recently cleared sizes allow for greater accommodation for a wide range of patient anatomies as well as greater stability as the shape of the implant distributes weight over a larger surface area. The design of the interbody fusion device consists of aggressive teeth for expulsion resistance, knurls for added stability, a threaded insertion feature for precision implant control, and two central cavities maximized for optimal bone graft packing.
