Globus Medical Announces Launch of COALITION(TM) ACDF Spacer System
Date:6/2/2009

AUDUBON, Pa., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Globus Medical, Inc., the largest privately held spinal implant manufacturer in the world, today announced the launch of the COALITION(TM) ACDF Spacer System. COALITION(TM) is an integrated plate and spacer system designed to provide the biomechanical strength of a traditional ACDF with less disruption of patient anatomy and preserved anatomical profile.

The COALITION(TM) technology combines a PEEK interbody spacer with a titanium alloy plate and two titanium alloy screws. The streamlined delivery system and innovative two screw design reduces procedural steps, minimizes retraction and lags the spacer to the vertebral endplates to compressively load the fusion area.

The COALITION(TM) system is the most versatile system on the market, designed to address a wide variety of surgical situations and preferences. The system offers: three anatomical footprints, two sagittal profiles, and fixed and variable angle screws in both self-drilling and self-tapping options.

Dr. Robert J. Banco, an Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon with The Boston Spine Group in Boston, Mass. said, "Unequivocally, COALITION(TM) offers my patients the best possible solution of current cervical stand alone fusion treatments. The selection of spacer footprints and screw offerings provide unparalleled options for the varying anatomies in my patient population. I have found the innovative delivery system and design minimizes intra-operative fiddle factor while saving time."

"Providing my patients a zero-profile offering with minimized esophageal retraction while retaining the same biomechanical stability of the standard of care is extremely beneficial," added Dr. Andrew Clavenna, an Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon with The Carrell Clinic in Dallas, Texas. "This allows my procedures to be less invasive and less disruptive, which may quicken recovery."

MILDER(TM) -- the Natural Evolution of Spine Care

The COALITION(TM) ACDF Spacer System is the latest addition to Globus Medical's MILDER(TM) Spine Care portfolio. The MILDER(TM) (Minimally Invasive, Less Disruptive, Earlier Recovery) Spine Care encompasses a holistic approach to spine care that integrates minimally invasive surgical techniques with implants, instrumentation, and education designed to lessen the disruption to a patient's anatomic structures and natural range of motion in order to facilitate an earlier, pain-free recovery.

"Each product at Globus is designed with the intent to provide surgeons the least invasive and best possible solution they can provide their patient," said Bill Rhoda, Director of Product Development. "COALITION(TM) exemplifies the Globus spirit and represents a dedication to quality and timing, without sacrificing either."
