HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Spine announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given 510(k) marketing clearance to Lynx(TM), a new cross connector system designed for use in surgical lumbar fusion procedures.

Life Spine's President, CEO and founder Michael S. Butler indicated that Lynx' unique new design will allow a surgeon more options when performing lumbar spine surgery and presented with a need for a stabilizing cross connector system. "The Lynx represents another great product development accomplishment for Life Spine. The cross connector provides multiaxial adjustability in all planes and is simple to use, as it snaps onto the rods, self-adjusts and locks with a single instrument. What's more, we have developed both straight and pre-arched versions of the Lynx, providing more tissue sparing surgical options."

Lynx features a variety of lengths via its fenestrated design, with straight and arched versions available in an assortment of adjustable length configurations ranging from 25mm to 100mm. Lockup of the construct at both rods and at the cross connector's medial joint is accomplished with a single driver tool, which is designed to lock the implant at a predetermined force. The cross connector is designed from surgical grade titanium, making it exceptionally strong. Lynx has been designed to be extremely easy and intuitive to use, virtually eliminating the need for bending and requiring only minimal instrumentation.
