Lanx®, Inc. Announces Launch of Concero™ Facet Screw System for Spinal Fusion
Date:4/12/2011

BROOMFIELD, Colo., April 12, 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 the Concero™ Facet Screw System (Concero) at the 2011 American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Meeting, Denver, CO.

The Concero system is a minimally invasive fixation alternative to pedicle screws, intended to stabilize the spine during fusion procedures at single or multiple levels from L1 to S1 through bilateral immobilization of the facet joints. It is available in multiple lengths and diameters and in both cannulated and non-cannulated versions with customized instrumentation. The system also features a toothed washer for improved bone fixation and a lag screw design for secure compression, eliminating the need for external compression mechanisms.

"The new Concero facet screw is an important enhancement to the Lanx fusion product suite and has been receiving positive feedback from surgeons," said Dan Gladney, Chief Executive Officer, Lanx. "The customizable system lends itself to many minimally invasive applications, both as stand-alone fixation and as part of larger fixation constructs, reinforcing our commitment to developing simple, intuitive implants and instrumentation that increase options for surgeons and improve care for their patients."

The Concero system can be used in combination with other fixation devices in surgical cases in need of additional motion restriction. Recent biomechanical testing shows the Lanx Aspen™ Spinous Process Fixation System coupled with Concero facet screws demonstrates overall stability and range-of-motion comparable to the Aspen device coupled with pedicle screws, and the Concero system construct may be a less invasive fixation method.(1)
