VTI Adds Patent For Its Modular Motion Preservation Spinal Implant
Date:1/26/2017

Minneapolis, MN – VTI, a MIS medical device company focused on lumber spine solutions, announced today that it has been granted a new patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. This patent relates to the company’s unique modular, in vivo assembly technology and its motion preservation, InterCushion® pipeline product. VTI now has over 25 patents and patent pending assets in its global intellectual property portfolio.

“The grant of this patent expands and lengthens VTI’s protection of our unique in vivo expansion technology for minimally invasive lumbar spine solutions. VTI is a world leader in lumbar spine focused motion preservation/disc nucleus replacement technology. This patent exemplifies our continued commitment to protect and broaden our intellectual property portfolio in this space. We are encouraged by the clinical results we are seeing from clinical trials using VTI’s modular technology in our InterCushion® product line,” commented Matthew R Kyle, President and CEO of VTI.

VTI’s InterCushion® lumbar spine motion preservation product has been successful in reducing pain, preserving disc, and halting modic changes in clinical trials in Canada. Currently, several patients are at or near 5 years’ post implantation with continued clinically successful outcomes.

Dr. Philip de Muelenaere stated “The potential value of an intervertebral nucleus replacement is linked to decreased future deterioration of the spinal motion segment. By maintaining disc height, the motion is maintained, stability is regained and long term collapse prevented. This protects the patency of the foramina, and decreases facet arthrosis which, apart from being a pain generator, will compromise the exiting nerve root.

The 5 year follow up MRI study proves that the prosthesis had maintained its position, maintained the disc height and kept the patients pain free."
