STRATFORD, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 28, 2005--VERTEBRON Inc. (VERTEBRON) is proud to announce over fifteen months successful clinical history with the Pedicle Screw System (PSS), its first system release with over 300 surgeries. The PSS is unique in many aspects, including its initial threadless and low-torque locking design. As a result of its simplicity and intuitive designs which integrated advanced "leapfrog" technologies from orthopaedic and spine sub-specialties, the PSS system experienced rapid adoption and penetration into leading spine centers as a surgeon-friendly, "easy to use" system. The system's overall ease of use and unique locking design captured the interests of many surgeons using competitive threaded locking mechanisms. In addition to unparalleled screw angulation (up to 84 degrees) and low torque locking (65 in-lbs.), the PSS system is also designed to use as few as five instruments for most procedures. Surgeons also commended the system for its inherent versatility with both open and minimally-invasive surgery (MIS) procedures. Operating room staff furthermore praised the system for its streamlined offering of easy to use implants and instruments.
