4Web Medical receives FDA 510(k) clearance for lateral interbody fusion device
The implant device company 4Web Medical announced it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Lateral Spine Truss System, a lateral interbody fusion device.
According to a company press release, the device will be available in various sizes and with integrated instrumentation.

He added, “4Web will continue to be on the cutting-edge, with meaningful innovation in spine surgery by pioneering implant function through structural design.”
