FDA clears CarboFix’s CarboClear pedicle screws
CarboFix last week said it received FDA clearance for its CarboClear Carbon Fiber Fenestrated Pedicle Screw System.
CarboClear is designed to treat patients with advanced stage spinal tumors. It can be used with a high viscosity, radiopaque, PMMA bone cement. It is fully made of carbon fibers for enhanced radiation therapy planning abilities. The use of PMMA-augmented CarboClear Fenestrated Screws allows for improved fixation.
