IlluminOss Medical Announces First Human Case Utilizing a Unique, New, Minimally Invasive Technology for Fracture Repair is Performed at Medical Hospital del Trabajadar in Santiago, Chile
Date:2/24/2009

Patient Has Mobility Immediately and Makes Rapid Recovery after Procedure Utilizing IlluminOss(TM) Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System

SANTIAGO, Chile, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- IlluminOss Medical today announced that one of the leading surgeons in Chile, Dr. Sebastian von Unger, has performed the first case in the world utilizing the innovative IlluminOss Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System for orthopedic surgery. The IlluminOss Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System was used on a 21 year old man with a fracture of the 5th metacarpal. The metacarpals are the bones that extend from the base of the wrist to the base of each finger at the knuckle. The fifth metacarpal runs to the little finger.

According to Dr. von Unger, "With traditional methods of treating fractures, often an incision the full length of the fracture line has to be made; and plates and screws inserted to stabilize the fracture. There may be extensive soft tissue damage; the patient has limited or no mobility initially which may lead to temporary or permanent stiffness; the patient may experience severe pain; and there is a danger of infection at the incision site as well as where the plates and screws are placed."

The minimally invasive IlluminOss Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System requires just a small 4.5mm pathway into the bone. A balloon catheter and light fiber are inserted into interior (intramedullary canal) of the bone. A light sensitive, liquid monomer is then infused into the balloon, expanding the balloon to fit the contours of the interior of the bone. Then the light source is activated, converting the liquid monomer into a hardened polymer within 90 seconds. The tiny skin incision is then closed.

Unlike other methods of fracture treatment, the IlluminOss Photodynamic Bone Stabilization System is designed to enable the patient to have immediate joint mobility without the need for immobilization. T
