Zimmer Introduces inViZia™ Anterior Cervical Plate System at NASS Annual Meeting
Date:11/3/2011

WARSAW, Ind., Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZMH; SIX: ZMH) today introduced the inViZia Anterior Cervical Plate System at the 26th North American Spine Society Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL.  The system features a generous graft window and narrow waist providing clinicians with clear and direct visualization during implant placement.  The plate also has a low profile (less than 2mm) which clinical literature suggests is one of the factors that may reduce post-operative dysphagia.    

The inViZia System is designed for anterior screw fixation of the cervical spine.  The system is intended for use in the temporary stabilization of the anterior spine during the development of cervical spinal fusions in patients with degenerative disc disease, trauma, tumors, deformity, pseudoarthrosis and failed previous fusions.

"Through our Trinica® Anterior Cervical Plate System family, Zimmer Spine has long delivered industry-leading cervical plate systems," said Steve Healy, President of Zimmer Spine.  "We extend this legacy with the introduction of the inViZia System, providing an advanced system designed to offer a streamlined procedure with simple instrumentation and increased visualization."

Building on the success of Zimmer Spine's Trinica family of anterior cervical plates, the new system incorporates true self-drilling screws which have been shown to eliminate the need for drilling, and the Secure-Twist® Locking Mechanism, which offers visual and tactile confirmation of screw locking.  

For more information on Zimmer Spine and the inViZia Anterior Cervical Plate System, visit Zimmer Spine's booth at the NASS Annual Meeting.
