San Clemente, Calif.-based VertiFlex plans to sell some of its non-core spine technology to Stryker.

The minimally invasive spine device maker aims to use funds from the sale to advance its platform for spinal stenosis treatments, according to the release. The scale and scope of the deal are not disclosed, and will include cash and contingent payments as well as a long-term licensing agreement.

VertiFlex is currently conducting an investigational device exemption trial for its Superion Interspinous Spacer system.
