Date:10/6/2010

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- DiFUSION Technologies Inc., a medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of its proprietary CleanFUZE™ anti-microbial technology for orthopedic implants, announced today the 510(k) clearance of its new Xiphos™ line of posterior interbody devices indicated for intervertebral body fusion of the lumbar spine, from L2 to SI, in skeletally mature patients who have had six months of non-operative treatment.  The device is intended for use at either one level or two contiguous levels for the treatment of degenerative disc disease (DDD) with up to Grade I spondylolisthesis.

One of the implants often used in these procedures is the interbody fusion device, the market for which is now approaching $1 billion.
