Date:7/7/2009

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., July 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- LifeNet Health, a leading allograft bio-implant company, in conjunction with Arthrex, Inc., has released the KinetiGraft Tendon, the Triple Bundle Tendon and Rotator Cuff bio-implant, all offering new options for ligament and tendon reconstruction.

LifeNet Health's new biomedical implants offer sports medicine physicians another alternative in repairing patient injuries. KinetiGraft Tendon and Triple Bundle Tendon are pre-constructed, size specific, sterile allografts that can be used in the reconstruction of either the anterior or posterior cruciate ligament, as well as augmenting tendon instability. The new Rotator Cuff Allograft Patch provides a new alternative for augmentation and surgical options for repairing shoulder injuries by using actual rotator cuff tendon.

"All three of these sports medicine bio-implants present a solution to an individual who wants to remain physically active after a sports injury. Our implants provide the safety record of Allowash XG(R) technology and offer that extra level of confidence for the surgeon. We know these implants can make a difference in a patient's health and help restore their mobility," says Dr. Mark Moore, LifeNet Health Director of Scientific Affairs.

LifeNet Health's CEO Rony Thomas states, "LifeNet Health is advancing the marketplace in sports medicine. We strive to be the innovation leader with safety as our top priority with every bio-implant we provide. Patients can be assured that the new bio-implants offer some of the best options for restoring health."

Since 1995, LifeNet Health has distributed more than two million bio-implants with no incidence of disease transmission linked to tissue screened and processed using LifeNet Health's proprietary Allowash XG(R) sterilization technology. "Surgeons can depend on us. We offer high-quality, safe bio-implants to save lives and restore health," states Thomas.

LifeNet Health, founded in 1982, is a full service biomedical tissue banking system and a leading non-profit organ and tissue donation agency whose mission is saving lives and restoring health. Known for its outstanding safety record and its unyielding commitment to quality, LifeNet Health provides recovery and processing services for musculoskeletal and cardiovascular tissues, distributing more than 300,000 biomedical implants every year to restore health to patients around the world.
