RSB Spine, LLC Announces First Implantation of the InterPlate(TM) L for the Lumbar Spine
Date:1/16/2008

CLEVELAND, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- RSB Spine, LLC, today announced the first implantation of its proprietary InterPlate(TM) L in the lumbar spine. The InterPlate L was approved as an interbody device in September 2007. The unique design offers a number of advantages over current devices. In addition, RSB Spine has recently completed the national rollout of its InterPlate C device for use in the cervical spine, which is being very well received by spine surgeons across the United States. The company also expects to introduce two new InterPlate products manufactured from a radiolucent polymer (PEEK, polyetheretherketone) later this year.

Fusion is one of the most common spinal procedures performed by neurosurgeons and orthopedic spine surgeons. The InterPlate C and InterPlate L are designed to facilitate rapid fusion and are used in conjunction with graft material to fuse spinal vertebrae.

Robert S. Bray, Jr., M.D., the inventor of the InterPlate and the first to use the lumbar version, said: "The InterPlate L simplifies the implant procedure and provides a very low profile implant with secure anti-backout protection of the screws for safety under the great vessels. It is a next generation from anterior lumbar plates, with the versatility for all levels."

RSB Spine Chief Executive Officer John A. Redmond said: "Today's announcement marks yet another milestone for our InterPlate family of products. Featuring a one-of-a-kind design and ease of insertion, the InterPlate L is expected to be highly attractive to many spine surgeons, as well as very competitive with other devices currently in the marketplace."

Redmond continued: "The InterPlate L has been exhibited at a number of spine meetings and the response has been gratifying, with many surgeons anxious to utilize this new device when released nationally."

RSB Spine is a privately held medical device company focused on developing innovative spinal implants. In 2004, RSB Spine sold its surgical instrument line to Jarit, an Integra LifeSciences Holding Corp. company and, in 2005, sold its cervical plate system to NuVasive, Inc.
