    I am from outside the spine industry, and I noticed that Nuvasive is growing in a declining market. Why? I have started doing some heavy research online and have noticed some good and some bad with regards to the company and XLIF. I know there are other threads on here where some people share their insights, mostly negative of course. Anyone care to jump in with some more insight? On Nuvasive, patent issues, Nuvasive long term, spine in general...

    Based on current responses, it doesn't sound good.

    I appreciate it. Coming from outside the industry, it would be nice to get some more perspective.

    Look at Nuvasive's SEC Filings/ Financial paperwork.

    It's little 'growth' is only because they've gone deeper in the red.

    They are much worse off now than they were a year ago. Much much worse.

    Their patents were lost in the lawsuit with Medtronic. They owe Medtronic big money.

    Big money they don't have.

    Look at the FDA Maude Report up now saying Nuvasives XLIF surgical tools can't be disassembled to sterilize it. How many years have surgeons been using that equipment without the capability to sterilize it?

    Nerve Monitoring System not effecting....non medical people putting the leads on patients.

    2011 Medical Journal articles coming out saying XLIF is bad. 3/4ths of all the old people who got XLIF, died. Many are STILL not fused, Surgeons never followed Coroent XL's FDA Approval Letter instructions to use "FDA Approved Fixation".

    Why are Electro Magnetic Field Meters detecting magnetic fields near peoples PEEK plastic Coroent XL spine spacer in their backs? There's no metal. Something's going on in there to generate magnetic fields. Either the tiny titanium marker pins inside the PEEK plastic, are not medical grade Titanium.....or some maybe there's an Ultra High Frequency RFID inside there generating magnetic fields.

    Cage Rage #2 was created to create big money and jobs. The FDA was ordered to adopt "Bayesian Statistics" for Medical Devices/Implants. No more clinical trials to prove safety. Bayesian Statistics= we'll look at the data as it comes in.

    To create money/jobs.......we've killed our own. All under the guise of 'Healthcare'. The big money people did the Medtronic lawsuit thingy to protect their money/assets. Now if you tried suing Nuvasive, you couldn't even get the doormat to their building.



    While Nuvasive may be dead....the actions and methods refined and learned will be used to cripple/kill even more to generate money and jobs.

    "Look at the FDA Maude Report up now saying Nuvasives XLIF surgical tools can't be disassembled to sterilize it. How many years have surgeons been using that equipment without the capability to sterilize it?"

    What XLIF instruments are you talking about? The XLIF instruments I have seen used in a case are standard instruments. They are the same instruments you would see in anyone's PLIF or TLIF set. Only difference is the purple handles. The retractor comes apart. So that cannot be an issue. Plus, all the monitoring disposibles come in sterile packs.

    What needs to be taken apart to sterilize?

    The FDA scrubs very quickly 'BS' off the Maude website.

    The person who filed the FDA Report seems very knowledgable/credible. Otherwise....it wouldn't be there.

    From your post, it's clear you've never worked in an OR or have spent any time in medical device development or manufacturing. You pass judgment on a company you know nothing about and are probably also 100% certain that Elvis is alive and Puff really is a magic dragon that lives in a cave and breathes fire when he's pissed off. NuVasive grew 13% in a flat market last year because they are one of the few spinal device companies that truly focus on creating technologies to better patient outcomes. They focus on that mantra and they execute it well. If XLIF was a death sentence and the study you quote had any true merit than why would all other major spine companies (Medtronic, Stryker, DePuy, K2M, Lanx, list goes on and on) be trying to copy NuVasive's lateral XLIF procedure?

    CoRoent XL has non-medical grade Titanium that gives off a magnetic signature? That's about as likely as finding out that Obama is really a white guy that paints himself black so hats off to you, Mr. Anonymous, for uncovering the conspiracy of the decade! The reality is NuVasive uses Ti-6Al-4V marker pins per ASTM F1472 or F136 just like every other spinal device manufacturer does. So it's not a "titanium" marker pin you idiot, it's Titanium alloy.

    Next time you have the urge to post something stupid you know nothing about, please save yourself and us the time and go eat your own BS sandwich...

    "Seems very knowledgable/credible?" How would you know? Using the word "Seems" means you have zero idea.

    "Otherwise....it wouldn't be there." Really? Your IQ must be off the charts. Are you Jerry Sandusky's attorney?

    Get off your agenda against NUVA and either try to sell against them or find a job in retail.

    Is Ed Mayadag still with NuVasive? He is like the original Xman. Atleast Ed tryed to make things happen in the field with some pretty poor representatives. I was doing a perc case after the XLIF and Ed was the one man show because the rep could not even understand simple directions. The distributor guy from atlanta was there too what a tool not so brite. Three guys for an XLIF what do they do for a scoli six guys? Surgeon made a great commednt after the case. Nice procedure but I dont need all these people in my room especially a howdy doody that trys to run the room and my staff.

    clicking that link brings up the report...and it's changed. It now says the FDA Medical Device folk sat down with Nuvasive's "Engineer". And supposedly Nuva is trying to design some new tools to implant their devices (do their procedure) since their surgical tools can't be disassembled to be sterilized.

    There's also another MAUDE report filed by someone else that they can't sterilized Nuvasive's surgical tools.

    Anybody know if Nuvasive figured out how to make surgical tools that can be disassembled to be sterilized YET?

    Looks like Surgeons are in some hot water since the lawyers found out they were using non-sterilized surgical tools over and over and over.
