Lanx, Inc. Announces Launch of Epic™ Anterior Thoracolumbar Plating System
Date:2/15/2011

BROOMFIELD, Colo., Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Lanx, Inc., a privately held medical device company focused on developing and commercializing innovative devices for spinal surgery, today announced the launch of its Epic™ Anterior Thoracolumbar Plating System (Epic™ System) at the 2011 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA.  

The Epic™ System is an anterior fixation device for use in anterior thoracolumbar fusion procedures. The low-profile plate has been designed for versatility and simplified placement with a single-step cover plate to prevent screw back out and reduce surgical steps involved with traditional anterior plating procedures. The system includes lumbar and sacral plate options and is available in a wide range of sizes to accommodate different patient anatomies.

Dan Gladney, Lanx' Chief Executive Officer, said, "The addition of the Epic System further broadens our product suite to include an anterior plating option.  It further reinforces Lanx' commitment to offering surgeons technology that allows for simpler spine solutions and the flexibility to treat a growing, diversified patient population."

"Epic provides strong anterior lumbar plate fixation. Simple and intuitive, the design provides application flexibility without compromising construct strength and stability.  Its streamlined insertion minimizes operative time. The single-step cover plate assures implant integrity and provides the surgeon a confidently stabilized segment," said Dr. Randal Trecha, M.D., orthopedic surgeon, Columbia Orthopaedic Group in Columbia, MO.

The Epic™ System is available to surgeons in the U.S. and will be on display at the Lanx AAOS booth (# 843).

Lanx markets a full line of spine technologies, including its flagship product, the Aspen™ Spinous Process Fixation System, a minimally invasive non-pedicle, posterior fixation device designed as a less invasive alternative to traditional posterior fixation devices such as pedicle screws.
