FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eden Spine receives US patent on the revolutionary TLIF Technology
LAKE MARY, Fl., March. 26th, 2009—Eden Spine (www.edenspine.com) announced earlier today that after years of research the company’s Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion device (TLIF) was granted from the European Patent Office.
Mourad Ben Mokhtar, head of Eden Spine’s research and developments efforts, explained that "our TLIF has been developed to enhance bone fusion, restore normal height, open-up nerve foramina to take pressure off the nerve roots, and most importantly to allow surgeons to insert bone graft and spacer into the disc space from a unilateral approach laterally without having to forcefully retract the nerve roots."
The mechanism behind Eden Spine’s proprietary TLIF allows it to be introduced easily between the vertebral bodies (straight), and once positioned, it then becomes a perfect non aggressive banana shape spacer. Surgeons comfort and patient satisfaction are the two reasons for the development of the technology.
"This Patent gives Eden Spine the exclusive right to a cutting edge interbody technology in a key segment of the spine industry" says Guillaume Viallaneix, CEO. He adds that "It is another asset that proves the company’s R&D versatility and ability to execute its ambitious strategy".
