Luna Interbody Spacer System for Degenerative Disc Disease

Benvenue Medical, Inc., a developer of minimally invasive solutions for spine repair, is actively enrolling patients in the Luna Interbody System for Fusion Trial (LIFT). The Luna Interbody Spacer System is designed to address the implant challenges for a true minimally invasive approach to spinal fusion by providing spine surgeons more flexibility in implantation.

The System features a small profile designed to expand in-situ within the disc space while allowing the surgeon to customise the contour of the implant to suit individual patient anatomy and surgical preferences.

LIFT is a European post-market, multi-center, prospective, non-randomised single-arm study aimed at collecting clinical data on the effectiveness of the Luna Interbody Spacer System in spinal fusion procedures for degenerative disc disease, which received CE Mark approval in 2010. After the completion of enrollment in the LIFT study, the Luna Interbody Spacer System will be commercially available in the EU later this year.
