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. The Xiphos™ System of implants is also indicated for use to replace a vertebral body that has been resected or excised (i.e. partial or total vertebrectomy) due to tumor or trauma/fracture.  The system is intended for the thoracolumbar spine (from T1 to L5) and is intended for use with supplemental internal fixation.

"This clearance marks a milestone in DiFUSION's commercial pathway. Not only does it provide us an early stage revenue source, the Xiphos line is also a platform on which we will continue to develop our CleanFUZE line of fusion devices," said John Kaelblein, President of DiFUSION Technologies.

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