Integra LifeSciences Launches New Integra(R) CUSA(R) NXT Bone Tip At 2012 Congress Of Neurological Surgeons Annual Meeting

PLAINSBORO, N.J., Oct. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today announced the launch of the Integra ® CUSA ® NXT Inferior Forward Bone Tip for Integra's CUSA ® NXT Ultrasonic Tissue Ablation System. The CUSA ® NXT system is a well-recognized medical device used in neurosurgical and other surgical procedures for the controlled and selective removal of soft tissue and bone near critical structures. The Integra ® CUSA ® NXT Bone Tips have received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and will be featured at the 2012 Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) annual meeting, October 6 – 10, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois.

The new Integra ® CUSA ® NXT Inferior Forward Bone Tip expands the surgical applications for the CUSA ® NXT system. Driven by the CUSA ® Selector ® 24kHz Neurosurgical Short handpiece, the Integra ® CUSA ® NXT Bone Tips allow surgeons to use ultrasonic tissue ablation in procedures requiring precise, controlled bone removal near critical structures where the rotational motion of a drill or frictional heat may be a concern.

The newest tip in the family features a working surface that is oriented towards the inferior (bottom) surface of the tip, making it useful in situations where the surgical setting requires downward pressure for bone removal. "We are excited to expand the tip selection for Integra's CUSA ® NXT platform," said Bob Davis, President of Integra's Neurosurgery business. "The orientation of the new tip will help neurosurgeons during cases when they are approaching the bone from above. The tip also generates less heat than competitive devices, which can be very important in certain surgical procedures."

Over 2,000 centers worldwide rely on the CUSA ® ultrasonic surgical ablation technology for a variety of procedures, including the removal of tissues associated with brain and abdominal tumors. Integra currently offers a diverse line of CUSA ® tissue ablation products, including the CUSA ® NXT, CUSA ® Excel+, CUSA ® Excel, CUSA ® Selector ® , and CUSA ® Dissectron TM systems.
