RTI Biologics Sees Expanded Surgeon User Base of Fresh OC Allografts
Date:10/30/2008

RTI Biologics, Inc. (RTI) (Nasdaq:RTIX), the Florida-based processor of orthopedic, dental, hernia and other biologic implants, today announced the company is seeing expansion of its user base of RTI’s fresh-stored osteochondral (OC) allografts since its first implant in May. To date, more than 70 patients have received these biologic implants to repair cartilage damage, reducing their pain and returning them to more active lifestyles.

ALACHUA, Fla. (Business Wire EON) October 30, 2008 -- Ronald A. Navarro, M.D., chief of orthopaedic surgery for Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center, performed surgery recently on a 22-year-old male patient using a fresh-stored right medial femoral hemi-condyle from RTI.

"These fresh grafts insure chondrocyte viability for the patient so that he can live with reconstituted anatomy for many years," said Navarro. "The patient was suffering for a couple of years before he underwent the operation and was encouraged by his dad, who had successfully undergone fresh osteochondral grafting by me several years before. As he is young and wants to continue an active lifestyle, fresh grafts with living chondrocytes provided the best opportunity for longevity of his knee."

Fresh-stored OC allografts provide mature hyaline cartilage with attached bone under the cartilage for repairing a joint surface, such as the knee. Hyaline cartilage is the specific type of cartilage that has poor healing and repair properties once damaged. When an injury occurs, a fresh-stored allograft with viable cartilage cells is needed for proper healing. The graft is cleansed, processed and preserved to provide a safe, high-quality allograft with a high level of chondrocyte viability, or live cartilage cells to enhance efficacy of the allograft implant.

RTI uses expedited release criteria to maintain fresh-stored graft utility. Lik
