Xtant receives FDA clearance for Calix-C family of cervical interbody cages
Xtant Medical announced that the FDA has cleared product line extensions for the Calix-C family of cervical interbody cages. The clearance provides for the addition of two larger footprints and importantly, for use with allograft. This clearance strengthens Xtant Medical's focus in regenerative technologies, providing a more comprehensive. integrated cervical treatment option for surgeons and their patients. In Xtant's continued effort to combine our hardware and biologics products to provide total solutions for our customers, the Calix-C indication now includes use with allograft comprised of cancellous and/or corticocancellous bone graft in addition to the current use with autograft. Xtant Medical's 3Demin and patented OsteoSponge technology are ideal allografts to use with Calix-C due to their ability to compress, fill and expand within the interbody's graft chamber, allowing for ideal bone contact with the vertebral plates and fusion. OsteoVive, a cellular allograft, can also be used in conjunction with Calix-C. The additional, larger footprints of Calix-C are designed for increased stability against the vertebral endplates, and allow for a larger lumen for bone graft, making it a better surgical option for a greater number of patients. The addition of the allograft indication and the larger sizes will all be available in PEEK and Titanium plasma coated PEEK.
