ApiFix — Minimally Invasive Deformity Correction (MID-C) System
Boston and Misgav, Israel
The ApiFix Minimally Invasive Deformity Correction (MID-C) System is a posterior dynamic surgical system meant to permanently correct spinal curve while retaining flexibility.
ApiFix describes the MID-C system as an “internal brace” indicated for certain types of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients. Implantation requires a 10 cm incision and a one-hour operation, versus 45 cm and up to six hours of surgery for devices presently used, according to the company.
The system has a CE Mark approval and is available in Europe, Israel, Singapore and Canada.
