San Jose, California  --  Medical device company SpineAlign Medical announced that it has successfully treated a first patient with its vertebral compression fracture device.

Under its FDA Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) feasibility study, the device features a nitinol implant designed to reconstruct the vertebral body via a minimally invasive approach.

“We are very pleased to have achieved this major milestone, which marks the initial phase of our clinical program in the United States,” said Paul Chirico, President and CEO of SpineAlign Medical. “Combined with the product’s successful commercial debut in Rome two weeks ago at the ASSR/ESNR joint conference, the clinical introduction of the product in the U.S. demonstrates that the company’s momentum is beginning to build.”
