Medtronic receives CE Mark for new ReDuX Plier

13th June 2013

Medtronic has been granted European CE Mark approval for the ReDuX Plier, a new device for use in performing osteotomies in spinal deformity surgeries.

The product has been developed by Medtronic's European product development office in Switzerland and is based on an original invention by Professor Jean Charles Le Huec of the Bordeaux University Hospital.

A specially-designed surgical instrument in the spinal orthopaedic sector, it allows clinicians to perform a more controlled osteotomy closure for people with a severe form of spinal curvature, whose conditions are often challenging to treat.

The ReDuX Plier is now being rolled out across Europe and is particularly well-adapted for pedicle substraction osteotomy procedures.

Steve Swinson, Medtronic's spinal and biologics vice-president for western Europe and Canada, said: "Medtronic has a long history of working with surgeons to turn innovative ideas into practical improvements for patients. ReDuX Plier is just one example, a device which can tackle complex conditions."

This comes after the firm received CE Mark approval for valve-in-valve procedures using the CoreValve and CoreValve Evolut transcatheter aortic valve implantation systems last month.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801598908-ADNFCR
