KALAMAZOO, Mich., June 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Stryker Corporation announced today that it has submitted a pre-market approval (PMA) application to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the use of OP-1 Putty for posterolateral lumbar spine fusion surgeries.

The product, OP-1 Putty, which contains the recombinant human protein OP-1 that stimulates new bone formation, is currently approved in the United States under a humanitarian device exemption (HDE) for a specific revision spine indication.
