NLT Spine, a developer of minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) and percutaneous procedures, has obtained CE mark approval for its eSpin discectomy device.
eSpin can be used as part of a lumbar interbody fusion procedure, facilitating surgeons to perform spinal discectomy procedures.
The device evacuates the disc nucleus and can be used to prepare the disc space before placing interbody fusion implants.
The company said in the future, eSpin will be integrated into its Prow lumbar interbody fusion (LIF) procedures.
NLT Spine CEO Didier Toubia said, "Our aim is to equip surgeons with a set of products and instruments that are needed to perform complete MISS procedures."
NLT Spine said a 510(k) notice for the eSpin is currently under review by the US Food and Drug Administration and the device is not available for sale in the US.
