K2M Receives 510(k) Clearance for Its tifix CAYMAN Plate Systems

LEESBURG, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–K2M, Inc., a spinal device company developing innovative solutions for the treatment of complex spinal pathologies, today announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its CAYMAN™ Buttress Plate System and CAYMAN™ Thoracolumbar Plate System, which have been designed to address the trauma and tumor market in the thoracolumbar, lumbar, and sacral areas of the spine.

The CAYMAN product family is comprised of multiple implant systems, including a buttress plate to address graft expulsion, a lower lumbar sacral plate, and additional plating designs to secure and stabilize the anterior column. The low-profile plate features K2M’s proprietary tifix® Locking Technology, a plate-screw locking technology whereby each screw head forms an autogenic lock to the plate upon insertion, requiring no additional locking mechanism. Additionally, the multi-directional screws allow for up to 45 degrees of angulation and lagging of the plate implant to the bone interface.
