MassDevice reports that the Japanese regulatory body has approved NuVasive's 2 titanium alloy implants for sale in the world's second largest spine market. 

The manufacturer's CoRoent large impacted and CoRoent large tapered titanium alloy implant devices are designed for use in posterior spine fusion procedures. They are the first of NuVasive's inter-body fusion cages to be approved in Japan. 

According to the company website, the devices are used for anterior cervical inter-body fusion and indicated for single-level reconstruction of degenerated cervical discs from the C2-C3 to C7-T1 vertebrae after discectomy.

The CoRoent received FDA clearance in March 2012. In October, the company achieved FDA approval for its PCM cervical disc system designed to preserve motion in the cervical spine in lieu of a standard fusion procedure.
