News Release - October 14, 2008
Interventional Spine, Inc. Introduces the PERPOS(TM) Fusion Facet Prep KitIRVINE, Calif.--(HSMN NewsFeed)--Interventional Spine, Inc. announced today the introduction of the Single Use PERPOS™ Fusion Facet Prep Kit, to be used in conjunction with the PERPOS™ PLS System to promote fusion of the facet joints.
“Interventional Spine’s PERPOS PLS System is the first and only PERCUTANEOUS transfacet-pedicular compression system for posterior stabilization during a fusion procedure,” said Walter A. Cuevas, Interventional Spine’s CEO. “The PERPOS PLS System, including the unique BONE-LOK® PLS Implant, provides secure bilateral immobilization of the facet joints, allowing the healing process to create fusion. The new PERPOS Fusion Facet Kit, when used with Interventional Spine’s PERPOS PLS System, is intended to enable clinicians to roughen the facet joints prior to stabilization and to place bone graft material in the area of the facet joint, if desired,” Mr. Cuevas continued.
“Using the new PERPOS Fusion Prep Kit with the PERPOS PLS System, implanting physicians can achieve a completely PERCUTANEOUS fusion treatment mode, potentially benefiting patients who are candidates for fusion procedures with or without interbodies,” added Mr. Cuevas. “As the marketplace continues to revisit the necessity of open surgery, we believe the 100% PERCUTANEOUS option Interventional Spine, Inc. provides will find increasing numbers of clinical adherents and will be welcomed by those patients that can benefit from less procedural trauma than that associated with open surgery,” Mr. Cuevas concluded.
Interventional Spine, Inc. is a privately held company based in Irvine, California that designs, develops, and markets patented implantable devices for the spine that can be deployed via percutaneous techniques, supported by the Company’s unique product introduction systems, providing benefits to patients, surgeons, and. hospitals.
