Interventional Spine Announces its 75th Patient Treated with the PerX360 Percutaneous Spinal Fusion Technology

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Interventional Spine, Inc. today announced that after having obtained clearance from the FDA , it has successfully completed 75 implants worldwide using the PerX360 Percutaneous Lumbar Fusion System for the treatment of Degenerative Disc Disease.

PerX360 System - A 30-minute Spinal Fusion Procedure

The PerX360 System™ is a combination of Interventional Spine's state-of-the-art products, including the Opticage™ expandable interbody fusion device, the Optiport™ percutaneous tissue dilation instrument, and the BONE-LOK® transfacet-pedicular compression device.  When used together, a complete 360° fusion can be performed through two 12-15mm incisions, in less than 30 minutes per level, and in an outpatient surgical setting.

The Opticage is infinitely adjustable within its working range of 9mm to 14mm.  The Optiport, which is designed to navigate safely past the exiting nerve roots, is eccentric and telescopic and has the ability to perform a foraminoplasty to increase the size of the vertebral foramen.

To date, 40 of the top minimally invasive U.S. spine surgeons from 15 states have been trained on the system.  The company has also trained 22 of the best minimally invasive spine surgeons from Spain, Germany, Italy, U.K., Mexico, Chile, the Dominican Republic and Brazil. The Company is being contacted routinely by surgeons around the world requesting to be trained and become experts in the PerX360 procedure.  Many consider the percutaneous PerX360 System to be the future of minimally invasive spine surgery.

Dr. David L. Greenwald, at Flagler Brain and Spine Institute in St. Augustine, Florida, commented: "I have treated 9 patients with this system and the results have been excellent.  Patients definitely appreciate the small incisions needed for the surgery and the relatively quick recovery times. The difference in lumbar pain levels on a before-and-after basis is instantaneous."

In addition, Dr. Mark Flood, from the Laser Spine Institute of Tampa, FL, commented "This technology has provided surgeons at Laser Spine Institute, and spine surgeons from around the world, innovative solutions to bring our patients relief from back and neck pain. Laser Spine Institute has embraced this technology as a way of providing new surgical options to bridge the treatment gap and better meet the needs of patients who are looking for an alternative to traditional open spinal fusion."

Mr. Walter A. Cuevas, Chief Executive Officer of Interventional Spine said: "This is a major milestone for the company. We are very pleased with the progress we have made since the system was introduced to the markets, and are encouraged by the interest the system has created among surgeons in the United States, Europe and Latin America. The excellent clinical results seen to-date speak loudly of not only the PerX360 System technology, but of the importance of proper training during the market rollout. We continue to place positive clinical results and the welfare of the patient above all other considerations," concluded Mr. Cuevas.
