1,000th Case Using Vertical Spine's FIBRINET Technology in Spinal Fusion
Vertical Spine achieved a milestone with the 1,000th case performed using its FIBRINET® System.
FIBRINET is a self-contained, disposable kit that is used to concentrate a patient’s own platelets and associated growth factors into a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Membrane graft. In addition, fluid Platelet-Rich Fibrin Gel is produced and mixed with bone grafting material.
Per company leadership, two initial spine fusion studies employing FIBRINET have demonstrated 100% radiographic fusion with no complications. A third study has been submitted for publication, and two additional studies will be submitted during 2016.
Vertical Spine was among companies identified in the ORTHOKNOW® 2012 overview, NASS Preview: New and Notable in Spine. In early 2015, the company announced a partnership with Polymer Therapeutics to co-develop anti-infective coatings for orthopaedic applications using unique polymer chemotypes distinguished by broad anti-infective properties.
