Prosecutors investigate spinal implant

Prosecutors investigate spinal implant Swiss prosecutors have launched an investigation into a failed spinal implant approved by UK regulators.

The total disc replacement implant made by Cambridge-based Ranier Technology left patients across Europe in agony and needing further surgery after breaking inside their backs.

Last month, BBC Panorama revealed how the Cadisc L implant was approved for use in humans despite evidence from studies in baboons that it could fail.

Ranier withdrew it from market in 2014. BBC News
