Osseon Therapeutics, Inc. Introduces Osseoflex(R) BT Steerable Bone Tamp


3/29/2011 1:01:34 PM

SANTA ROSA, Calif., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Osseon® Therapeutics announced today at the Society of Interventional Radiology's (SIR) Annual Meeting the launch of the Osseoflex BT Steerable Bone Tamp. The steerable bone tamp is designed to allow percutaneous access to sclerotic bone. The Osseoflex BT features the same proprietary technology found in the Osseoflex® Steerable Needle and Osseoflex® DR Steerable Drill. The Osseoflex BT articulates up to 60 degrees( and, when used in conjunction with the Osseoflex Needle, the Bone Tamp allows unipedicular access to vertebral compression fractures previously considered inaccessible due to dense, sclerotic bone or malignant tissue. The Bone Tamp also provides clinicians with a percutaneous access option to cancellous bone in other areas of the body.

"The Osseoflex BT is the newest addition to the Osseon suite of steerable, minimally invasive devices," said John Stalcup, Ph.D., Osseon's CEO. "In the coming months, we will continue to develop and introduce complementary innovative products to address physician and patient needs."

Osseon Therapeutics currently markets the Osseoflex Steerable Needle, Osseoperm® Bone Cement, Osseoflex DR Steerable Drill, and Osseoflex Access Kit. Together, the Osseoplasty Suite represents unparalleled products for physicians involved in the treatment vertebral compression fractures associated with osteoporosis, myelomas, and acute trauma.
