Amniotic membrane provides wound covering for spinal and orthopaedic application

Orthofix International : 26 October, 2012  (New Product)
Orthofix International is introducing VersaShield, a naturally physiologic wound covering for use in both spinal and orthopaedic applications.


The amniotic allograft tissue form is processed by The Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, or MTF.



"We are very excited to be showcasing our second biologic tissue form from MTF this week at the 2012 North American Spine Society meeting," said President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Vaters. "This launch further demonstrates our commitment to expand our biologic offering, which goes hand in hand with our Value Proposition of providing surgeons a breadth of hardware, biologic, and stimulation solutions. In further collaboration with MTF, we are also excited about our launch next year of Trinity Elite, which is the next generation our highly successful Trinity Evolution."



Bruce Stroever, Chief Executive Officer of MTF commented: "For more than a century, doctors have used amniotic tissue for a broad variety of clinical applications in such fields as General Surgery, Dental, Ob/Gyn, Ocular Surgery, Spine and Sports Medicine. This is due to the beneficial anti-inflammatory, anti-adhesive, anti-microbial, and non-immunogenic properties of the tissue graft. MTF is pleased to continue our partnership with Orthofix on the introduction of VersaShield amniotic membrane in order to make innovative biologic solutions available to all spine and orthopaedic surgeons."



VersaShield is an allograft tissue processed from placental tissue recovered from living donors during healthy child births. VersaShield can be stored at room temperature and possesses easy handling characteristics. It will be distributed by our spine and orthopaedic distribution networks.
