Facet Solutions Completes Facet Joint and Disc Replacement Study

HOPKINTON, Mass., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Facet Solutions, Inc. today announced the successful completion of a scientific evaluation for a total joint reconstruction in the lumbar spine by Dr. Vijay Goel's laboratory at the University of Toledo. The study evaluated the combination of Facet Solutions' ACADIA(TM) Facet Replacement System (AFRS(TM)) with a semi-constrained disc replacement device and then, separately, with a polymeric disc replacement device in a finite element model. The results demonstrated restoration of the biomechanics of the native spine. Dr. Goel commented, "The FEA model demonstrates the ability of the ACADIA(TM) technology in combination with different disc replacement technologies to mimic the biomechanics of the intact spine." Marc Peterman, Vice President of R&D for Facet Solutions added, "This study leverages our landmark intellectual property in combining facet replacement with an anterior disc, and it provides further evidence that our anatomic facet design will work with a variety of anterior motion-sparing devices." The details of this study will be presented by Dr. Goel at 11:45am on Tuesday, October 14th at the NASS pre-meeting course in Toronto, Ontario.

Facet Solutions, Inc. has developed the ACADIA(TM) Facet Replacement System (AFRS(TM)) to provide patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and facet degeneration a motion preserving alternative to lumbar spinal fusion. The AFRS(TM) procedure includes replacement of the diseased facet joint with an anatomic implant that restores the natural motion, stability, and balance to the lumbar spine.

*Note: ACADIA(TM) is an investigational device in the United States. It is limited by United States (U.S.) Federal Law for investigational use only.
