Orthofix Announces Milestone: 60,000+ M6-C Artificial Cervical Discs Implanted Worldwide

The implant is a next-generation artificial disc designed to mimic the natural motion of a native disc

Orthofix Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: OFIX), a global medical device company with a spine and orthopedics focus, today announced that more than 60,000 M6-C artificial cervical discs have been implanted worldwide.

The implant is a next-generation artificial disc designed to mimic the natural motion of a native disc. Developed to replace an intervertebral disc damaged by cervical disc degeneration, the M6-C disc is indicated as an alternative to cervical fusion. First approved for distribution under the CE Mark in the European Union and other international geographies, the M6-C disc received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 2019.

“The M6-C artificial cervical disc is continuing to establish a market-leading position globally with more than 60,000 devices implanted worldwide,” said Orthofix President of Global Spine Kevin Kenny. “We are pleased to see the continued adoption of this state-of-the-art technology as our international success translates into the U.S. market.”

The M6-C disc is comprised of an artificial visco-elastic nucleus and fiber annulus. Like a natural disc, this unique construct allows for shock absorption at the implanted level and provides a controlled range of motion as the spine bends and translates in multiple planes. The M6-C disc is the only such device available in the U.S. with these features.

In August of 2021, Orthofix announced the first patient implant in a U.S. Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) two-level study of the M6-C disc. The study is evaluating patients treated for cervical degenerative disc disease at two contiguous vertebral levels with the M6-C disc compared to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for symptomatic cervical radiculopathy.

Orthofix invites those attending the North American Spine Society annual meeting in Boston to visit booth #3308 to learn more about the M6-C artificial cervical disc.

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”
The clinical Study will enroll up to 97 patients at up to 12 European investigational sites. Completion of the study is expected this year, and results will support CE mark and pre-market approval submissions reports Vivasure Medical.
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
