Atlas Spine Launches Stature(TM) Vertebral Body Replacement System

JUPITER, Fla., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlas Spine, Inc., a spinal technology development company whose focus is on fusion and non-fusion products, announced today the national launch of the STATURE Vertebral Body Replacement System. The STATURE VBR is a radiolucent MIS compatible spacer system designed to utilize a self-distracting technique in the treatment of various pathologies of the thoracic and lumbar spine.

"After significant developmental work and clinical evaluation, it is rewarding to see the enthusiasm towards STATURE by an increasing group of clinicians. Their feedback and support drives our confidence in STATURE's performance as its use multiplies in surgeries across the nation," says Bart Doedens, President and CEO of Atlas Spine.

The STATURE VBR is an evolution in the PEEK spacer arena. Traditionally spacer products have been met with the tedious challenges of implanting an appropriately sized device through a small access. Oftentimes these challenges require more aggressive methods with compromised results. The STATURE VBR's unique geometry and self-distracting capabilities overcome these challenges and allow the surgeon to more easily and effectively restore the natural anatomic height and sagittal balance in severely compromised spaces.

The implants are manufactured from PEEK Optima(R), an implant grade material with biomechanical characteristics similar to that of natural cortical bone. They are available in a variety of sizes and geometric options to accommodate the patient's specific anatomical requirements.

The STATURE system is complimented by the BACK-PAK(TM) DS Atlas Spine's comprehensive disc preparation set. MIS compatible as well, the BACK-PAK DS includes proprietary instruments designed to maximize proficiency and provide optimum weight, balance, feel and control for surgeons.

Atlas Spine, headquartered in Jupiter, Florida, is a privately held company whose core strength is the development and marketing of spinal instruments and implants. Other products offered by Atlas Spine are: The VERTEVIEW(TM) Cervical Plating System, and REBAR(TM) VBR. Atlas has also received 510(k) clearances for the APELO(TM) Pedicle Screw System, and REBAR XL(TM) VBR scheduled for release in 2008.
