Scient'x USA Announces 510(K) Clearance For Antelys GX(R) PEEK VBR System

MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 9 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Scient'x USA, manufacturer of innovative spine implant technologies, today announced the receipt of 510K clearance to market their new Antelys GX PEEK VBR System. The Antelys GX System was developed to meet the technical and surgical requirements of lumbar arthrodesis for surgeons using an anterior surgical approach. Antelys GX is an addition to the other PEEK VBR systems offered by Scient'x, including the Ellys, Corelys, Aurys, and Antelus VBR System.

Developed in conjunction with renowned surgeons led by Dr. Pasquale Montesand, the implant offers a smaller footprint to conform to the natural vertebral body anatomy, while still providing optimum contact area between the graft and the verebral endplates.

Timothy Seese, COO of Scient'x USA, indicated that the Antelys GX PEEK Spacer was a direct result of surgeon requests for a smaller vertebral implant that would include a large variety of height and angles, as well as surgeon friendly instrumentation. "Scient'x is committed to meeting the needs of our surgeon community through our collaborative effort to bring innovative ideas for practical application," said Mr. Seese.

Scient'x USA Inc. is a diversified spinal company that designs, manufactures, markets and distributes a comprehensive and innovative range of quality spinal devices. Based in Orlando, Florida, Scient'x USA offers a range of products to treat conditions such as lumbar instability, trauma, and degenerative disc disease.
