BOCA RATON, Fla. April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The X-GRAFT™ device is fashioned from solid human cortical bone, and is designed to acutely treat degenerative conditions of the spine. Utilizing the benefits of a minimal-exposure surgical procedure, the X-GRAFT™ is implanted into the interspinous space to provide stabilization of the spine, with minimal disturbance to the surrounding tissue. This is the first to market in a series of minimally invasive devices currently in development at Binder Biomedical and a key component of the MLIFF™ (Minimal - Lumbar, Interspinous, Facet Fusion) procedure.
Lawrence Binder, President of Binder Biomedical, Inc. commented: "The robust patent-pending design of the X-GRAFT™ device makes it an excellent option for stabilization of the lumbar spine following a decompression. The benefits of this system are evident from the favorable feedback we've received from our users. By offering a full range of sizes, as well as a comprehensive set of precision instruments, the X-GRAFT™ device has the unique ability to accommodate varying patient anatomy, while using minimal exposure, and fewer steps than traditional techniques."
The X-GRAFT™ device is procured and manufactured to exacting specifications by the University of Miami Tissue Bank (UMTB). This non-profit organization is the first civilian tissue bank in the U.S. and a university owned and operated tissue bank. UMTB is a comprehensive world-class facility, which conducts rigorous screening, recovery, autopsies, processing and packaging for all donors. Implantation of the 100th X-GRAFT™ is expected by the end of next month. Plans to expand national distributions are already underway, along with a full launch of the X-GRAFT™ device across the U.S. by the third quarter 2010.
