Allen Medical Systems Announces Surgeon Spotlight Series Interview
Date:10/1/2009

ACTON, Mass., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Allen Medical Systems, a Hill-Rom company, (NYSE: HRC), announces the second in its Surgeon Spotlight Series showcasing interviews with top orthopaedic surgeons. Carlos A. Guanche, M.D., managing partner at Southern California Orthopaedic Institute, is the featured surgeon and is recognized for his contributions in expanding the use of the Allen Intraoperative Arm Positioner for elbow fractures, scopes and clavicle repair procedures.

"I can put it into any position that I want with a minimum of effort, and I will be using it in all of my open shoulder procedures. More importantly, I have already found a couple of new uses for it including elbow arthroscopy," said Dr. Guanche.

Darren Friedman, M.D., clinical assistant professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, New York University School of Medicine, used the device in an elbow fracture case. This procedure is usually performed with the patient in the supine position, with their elbow resting on a sterile pillow on the chest. The pillow tends to shift during these cases, often sliding towards the patient's neck and interfering with the intubation tube. Dr. Friedman described his experience using the device in elbow cases, "I have found the Allen Intraoperative Arm Positioner to be useful during surgery about the elbow. With the patient in the supine or lateral position, and the A
