Two SpinalMotion's sub-5mm Kineflex|C cervical total disc replacements receive CE Mark

SpinalMotion, developer of the investigational Kineflex® lumbar and Kineflex® |C cervical disc implants for treating degenerative disc disease (DDD), today announced that it has received CE Mark for two sub-5mm Kineflex|C cervical total disc replacements to address the widest range of patients by best matching disc height to the existing anatomy. The Kineflex|C 4LH disc height of 4mm, and the Kineflex|C 5LH disc height of 4.8mm, enable surgeons to treat patients with smaller disc heights without overstretching the adjacent ligaments, which could limit motion.

"We look forward to adding our lower height Kineflex|C discs to our product line internationally, and we believe we now have the widest range of cervical disc heights to most effectively match patients' anatomy with a goal of optimizing motion and long term stability," said David Hovda, SpinalMotion's President and CEO. "The kinematics of our new discs are identical to our existing Kineflex|C discs, and the implant technique and instrumentation are very similar to the discs we have used commercially and in our IDE clinical study."
