This product employs the company’s proprietary Capless screw locking technology that simplifies screw placement by reducing the number of steps during spinal stabilization surgery. It also provides several less invasive options for screw placement and reduces operating and recovery time.

The significance of the Capless LI Pedicle Screw system lies in its unique rotary locking mechanism. “The proprietary rotary locking mechanism incorporated in the screw allows the direct fixation of rod in place, thus doing away with the need for a separate cap or setscrew,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Prasanna Vadhana Kannan. “In addition to functional benefits for the surgeon, this design results in fewer parts to stock and inventory, in turn leading to significant cost-savings.“

Having been subjected to extensive biomechanical testing, the Capless screw technology offers improved performance over conventional technologies. It is designed to provide a large surface contact area between rod and locking mechanism for greater locking strength. It also includes a flexible crossbar stabilizer that employs a proprietary floating ring that simultaneously locks onto the rod and cross bar, offering improved stability of the overall screw construct. This design also eliminates the possibility for undesired cap loosening, cap loss or difficulties in cap placement.

Since receiving clearance from the FDA in September 2007, the Capless LI Pedicle Screw system has undergone over 200 implantations. The company hopes to build upon the successful Capless product platform to increase indications and exposure in the minimally invasive, deformity, and dynamic fixation markets.

“The company is also investing in the development of a disk augmentation system, which will improve the function and reduce the pain associated with degenerative disk disease of the lumbar spine, without destruction of underlying anatomy,” notes Prasanna. “Recently, X-Spine received FDA clearance for the Butrex buttress plating system, which provides an implant option for the front of the spine and is intended to be used along with the Capless LI Pedicle Screw system.”

Apart from the two issued patents and multiple patents pending in the spinal fixation market, X-Spine Systems has five FDA-approved products in the United States and two with CE mark for Europe. The company has also granted several licensing and/or distribution agreements for its proprietary technology to other important market participants.

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in new products and technologies within its industry. The recipient company has shown innovation by launching a broad line of emerging products and technologies.
