BELGRADE, Mont., Dec. 09, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT:XTNT), a leader in the development of regenerative medicine products and medical devices, today announced the first surgical case of the Atrix-C Cervical Allograft Interbody Spacer. This allograft spacer represents the first Xtant Medical product launched within the U.S., following the combination of Bacterin International, Inc. and X-spine Systems, Inc., highlighting the strategic focus on co-development product opportunities in the future.
The Atrix-C Cervical Allograft Interbody Spacer offers surgeons a structural allograft solution for anterior cervical discectomy fusion (ACDF). The implant is a precision milled cortical allograft, with a central opening for placement of a preferred biologic material for fusion, such as OsteoSponge®, and with an anatomically shaped footprint designed to help maximize surface area for structural support.
Dr. Alan Villavicencio, a neurosurgeon with the Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine Associates, performed the first ACDF procedure utilizing the Atrix-C Cervical Allograft Interbody Spacer this week. The surgery, performed at Boulder Community Hospital – Foothills Campus, in Boulder, CO, was to treat a patient with degenerative disc disease. “The case went well,” stated Dr. Villavicencio. “The chamfered end on the Atrix-C Allograft Spacer allowed for easy insertion, while the trapezoidal shaped footprint fit the cervical anatomy well, and the cortical design with a center lumen provided a balance of structural support with ample fusion area.”
“The Atrix-C Cervical Allograft Interbody Spacer expands the cervical product portfolio of Xtant Medical,” said Dr. David Kirschman, Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President of Xtant Medical. “The addition of Atrix-C now offers customers a cervical allograft solution in addition to the existing Calix® and Calix PC™ PEEK interbody spacers for the ACDF procedure. The Atrix-C Cervical Allograft Interbody Spacer was developed using the combined instrumentation expertise of X-spine and the orthobiologic expertise of Bacterin, and illustrates the value of the Xtant combination.”
According to BioMedGPS market research, the milled, spinal construct market is expected to be $282M for 2015.
