Impliant Restarts Pivotal Clinical Trial for Patented TOPS(TM) Spine System
Date:5/27/2008

f our TOPS(TM) clinical study represents the culmination of a lot of hard work and support by individuals both inside and outside the organization. We are especially grateful to all of our investigators for their input, dedication and support over the past several months. We are all very excited to get started again."

Impliant has enrolled 74 patients to date in its prospective, randomized IDE study comparing the TOPS(TM) System to a traditional posterior fusion. The company also currently has 75 TOPS(TM) patients enrolled under single and multi-level protocols in Brazil, Belgium, Turkey, and Israel. Page 2 of 2

Impliant is applying cutting-edge materials and crossbar biomechanical techniques to develop a new class of spine arthroplasty devices that target over 40% of the patients worldwide who undergo fusion surgery and could benefit from a Total Posterior Arthroplasty solution.

About the TOPS(TM) System

Impliant's TOPS(TM) System, a mobile posterior device, is designed to stabilize but not fuse the L3-4 or L4-5 vertebral level to alleviate pain stemming from spinal stenosis with or without degenerative facet arthrosis and spondylolisthesis. Following a laminectomy and medial facetectomy, the device is affixed to the spine via four pedicle screws using a standard posterior surgical approach. Impliant believes that the TOPS(TM) System could benefit over 500,000 patients worldwide undergoing spinal fusion surgery each year. The TOPS(TM) System is not approved for sale in the United States.
