VEXIM, a medical device company specializing in the minimally invasive treatment of vertebral fractures, announced the launch in Germany of its new product Masterflow Plus, a new product targeted at low energy osteoporotic fractures.
“With this new product developed specifically for the German market, we aim to further increase our penetration and growth in that region. Dedicated to low energy osteoporotic fractures, a high-volume yet lower-price market, Masterflow Plus is designed to be competitive in that area and to offer hospitals and physicians a valid alternative to treat osteoporotic compression fractures. Meanwhile, the SpineJack will continue its penetration of the German market especially on high-energy and complex vertebral fractures where vertebral body restoration and spinal balance correction need to be applied. This investment demonstrates VEXIM’s objective of becoming a significant Spine Trauma leader in Germany providing hospitals, surgeons and patients with best treatment options,” says Vincent Gardès, CEO of VEXIM.
Masterflow Plus, a new product dedicated to Germany
Masterflow Plus is a new solution designed to treat Vertebral Compression Fractures (A1-type according to Magerl and AOSpine Classifications) in Osteoporotic Bone. Masterflow Plus allows a Controlled Cement Augmentation Procedure first through vertebral body height elevation, and second by stabilizing the fracture using Cohesion Bone Cement injection. This new system also offers the opportunity to treat multiple vertebral levels in a single surgery when combined with the Masterflow Injection System. The injector Masterflow, launched in 2015, is a sophisticated solution providing a controlled high viscosity cement injection, at a safe distance from the radiation field for multi-level procedures.
This new method using the Jack Device and Masterflow injector offers the possibility to restore fractured vertebrae sustainably and inject high viscosity cement safely into the vertebrae. The Jack Device will be removed and used again for a possible next level. The advantage is a controlled cavity creation and directed height restoration where it is needed. The surgeon can control the expansion of the device.
Masterflow Plus is a competitive price solution for multi-level fracture treatments, based on the similar and patented concept of SpineJack, yet functioning in unidirectional form and with less force-capabilities in its height restoration. The instrument is single-use and disposable and delivered in combination with a solid injection system that is capable of delivering high viscosity cement under complete control of flow to accommodate the surgeons in the operating room.
With the commercialization of the Masterflow Plus in Germany, the biggest market in Europe (worth €70 million), we also gained access to Clinicpartners, Agaplesion, AGKAMed and Paul Gerhard Diakonie, counting for 250+ clinics for Vexim to sell into.
