Medical device maker NuVasive Inc. said Friday it completed its $80-million acquisition of privately held Impulse Monitoring Inc., which provides neurophysiologists to assist spine surgeons in nerve monitoring.

NuVasive, based in San Diego, said the deal, which was announced late last month, will help increase the penetration of its NeuroVision system, which identifies nerves during spinal fusion surgeries.

Shares of NuVasive fell 88 cents, 5.1 percent, to $16.44 in Friday trading.
