New bone graft substitute is simple to handle and use

Medtronic : 22 May, 2007  (New Product)
Medtronic Progenix DBM Putty's is now immediately available across the USA and will be distributed through the company's wholly owned subsidiary SpinalGraft Technologies.
Progenix DBM Putty is a bone Graft substitute and bone void filler used in voids or gaps of the pelvis, ilium, and extremities.

Progenix DBM Putty provides excellent handling characteristics while offering surgeons a treatment option with proven bone formation, certified osteoinductivity, validated viral inactivation and device level sterility.

Bone voids or gaps can be surgically created defects or bony defects resulting from traumatic injury.

Progenix DBM Putty provides a bone void filler that is resorbed and is replaced by host bone during the healing process.

'I like the fact that Progenix DBM Putty is easy to use, off the shelf, and deliverable directly through a syringe', said Christopher Silveri, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon from Fairfax, Virginia, USA, who performed some of the first clinical evaluations of the putty.

'Based on its handling characteristics and the supporting studies that I have reviewed, the Progenix DBM Putty gives me an excellent bone grafting option for my patients.

'We are pleased to announce this latest addition to our market leading portfolio of biologic technologies', added Pete Wehrly, senior vice president and president of the Spinal and Biologics business at Medtronic.

'Progenix DBM Putty provides our surgeon customers a great option for treating their patients within the bone void filler indication'.
