Integra LifeSciences Announces Launch of the Camino Advanced Monitor, a State of the Art Monitoring System for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients

PLAINSBORO, N.J., Sept. 11, 2007 (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (NasdaqGS:IART ) announced today the release of the Camino(R) Advanced Monitor (CAM), the latest addition to Integra's neuromonitoring product line.

Camino(R) Advanced Monitor is the newest offering in Integra's established line of Camino(R) ICP monitoring solutions. Integra designed the new monitor to incorporate numerous features requested by our clinicians, including an improved visual display screen, an optimized interface and an advanced ergonomic design. The Camino(R) Advanced Monitor accurately measures Intracranial Pressure (ICP) and Intracranial Temperature (ICT) via Integra's proven fiberoptic technology. The system also displays Mean Arterial Pressure (MAP) and Cerebral Perfusion Pressure (CPP), based on input from the patient bedside monitor.

Intracranial pressure monitoring is an essential component in the treatment of severe brain injury. The 2007 Guidelines for the Treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury, recently published by the Brain Trauma Foundation, contain specific recommendations with regard to monitoring intracranial pressure and brain tissue oxygen in severe Traumatic Brain Injury patients. The brain tissue oxygen level is monitored via Integra's Licox(R) Brain Tissue Oxygen Monitoring System. Both the Camino(R) Advanced Monitor and the Licox(R) Brain Tissue Oxygen Monitoring System may be easily connected to Integra's state of the art Mobius(TM) Multimodality Monitoring System via a built-in digital communication port. The Mobius(TM) system allows the clinician to monitor and record, at the bedside, multiple clinical measurements that are critical for the treatment of neurological injury.

Integra will be exhibiting the Camino(R) Advanced Monitor at the upcoming 2007 Congress of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting, which will take place in San Diego, CA on September 15 - 20.

The Integra NeuroSciences direct sales organization will sell the Camino(R) Advanced Monitor.
