CarboFix Extends Its CarboClear® Carbon Fiber Pedicle Screw System Product Line With Its FDA Cleared Fenestrated Screws

DOVER, Delaware, Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- CarboFix has announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared its CarboClear® Carbon Fiber Fenestrated Pedicle Screw System used in the treatment of patients with advanced stage spinal tumors.

CarboClear® Fenestrated Pedicle Screws are used in conjunction with a high viscosity, radiopaque, PMMA bone cement (Teknimed's High V+ Cement), which is also sold by CarboFix.

Pedicle Screw fixation in patients with advanced stage tumors may be challenging due to compromised bone. The use of PMMA-augmented CarboClear Fenestrated Screws provides for improved fixation.

The CarboClear® System is the only pedicle screw system fully made of carbon fibers. Carbon fiber implants are proposing unique advantages to the oncological patients and their physicians. Among those advantages are: enhanced radiation therapy planning abilities, allowing radiation treatment to optimize the radiation dose to the tumor with minimal collateral tissue damage, and enhanced follow up abilities due to artifacts-free imaging. In addition, the implants provide unparalleled fatigue strength to support the impaired healing process in those patients, as well as compatibility with particle radiation (proton and carbon ion) and other stereotactic radio-surgery modalities.

Indications for Use: When used in conjunction with High V+ Bone Cement, the CarboClear Fenestrated Pedicle Screws are intended to restore the integrity of the spinal column even in the absence of fusion for a limited time period in patients with advanced stage tumors involving the thoracic and lumbar spine in whom life expectancy is of insufficient duration to permit achievement of fusion. CarboClear Fenestrated Pedicle Screws augmented with High V+ Bone Cement are for use at spinal levels where the structural integrity of the spine is not severely compromised.
