10/24/2019 | 11:36am EDT

  • MHLW(Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare) approvals for both SteriSpine™ LC and CC in Japan in October 2019
  • Deliveries of SteriSpine™ LC and CC orders in progress
  • First surgeries planned in November 2019

Regulatory News:

Safe Orthopaedics (Paris:ALSAF) (FR0012452746 – ALSAF), a company specializing in the design and marketing of single-use implants and instruments for the minimally-invasive treatment of spine fracture pathologies, announces the approvals of lumbar and cervical cages SteriSpineTM LC and CC in Japan. They were received by KiSCO Co., Ltd. (KiSCO) in October 2019, and mark the deployment of the exclusive commercialization and distribution agreement for Japan, signed in June 2018.

“The two approvals of SteriSpineTM LC and CC in Japan is a new step for our collaboration with KiSCO, contractualized in 2018. As from now, all our technologies within the scope of the original agreement are now available for sale and with the promising launch of SteriSpine PS, we are excited to help KiSCO in the commercial deployment of these two new ranges. As Japan is the third world’s largest market sale in the spine sector, the short-term growth prospects for both companies KiSCO and Safe Orthopaedics are real,” says Pierre Dumouchel, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Safe Orthopaedics.

Thanks to these approvals, KiSCO aims at increasing its market share by expanding the range of Safe Orthopaedics’ products on the Japanese market, worth $ 400 million.

“Since the commercial launch of SteriSpine PS, we notice a genuine interest from Japanese surgeons for these technological platforms. Always ready for use, new and sterile, they are more secure for the patient and cost-saving for hospitals. The approvals of SteriSpine LC and CC technologies from Safe Orthopaedics is a real opportunity to convince more surgeons, accelerate the acquisition of Japanese market shares and anticipate a very long term strategy on this new kind of medical technology,” concludes Ayumu Nakaji, Chief Executive Officer of KiSCO.
