Stocks in this article: ATEC

CARLSBAD, Calif., Oct. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:ATEC), the parent company of Alphatec Spine, Inc., a medical device company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets products for the surgical treatment of spine disorders, with a focus on treating conditions related to the aging spine, announced today that it will showcase several new products at the upcoming North American Spine Society (NASS) meeting in Dallas, TX, which will be held from October 24 th to 26 th, 2012. Alphatec Spine will be located in booth number 1116.

This year's product showcase will include:

Trestle Luxe TM Anterior Cervical Plating System is the Company's next-generation anterior cervical fixation system. Trestle Luxe is a unique and easy to use system that incorporates a zero-step locking mechanism into one of the lowest profile plates available. Trestle Luxe incorporates a number of other beneficial features such as large windows that enable better graft site/end plate visualization, an assortment of screws that provide multiple fixation options, plus a comprehensive array of implants and instrumentation to meet surgeon needs.

BridgePoint™ Spinous Process Fixation System is Alphatec Spine's newest Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) device that is designed to enable spine surgeons to immobilize and stabilize spinal segments without the need for pedicle screw and rod constructs. The BridgePoint System is intended to be an adjunct to fusion of the thoracic and lumbar spine to treat disorders resulting from degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, tumor and trauma. The device's state of the art design incorporates unique telescoping plates that allow users to compress the anterior column for a reliable interbody fusion, and its large bone contact area provides a strong anchor point from which to apply compression as well as optimal stability during the fusion process.

Alphatec NEXoss™, is a next-generation synthetic bone graft indicated for use in posterolateral spine fusions in conjunction with bone marrow aspirate, autograft bone and appropriate hardware. Alphatec NEXoss is composed of two unique patented technologies. The first is an engineered extracellular collagen bioscaffold that provides a physical structure for cell infiltration and attachment. The second is osteoconductive nano-structured bone crystals that have similar composition, structure and size as human bone. These two technologies function together to provide an ideal environment for a natural bone growth solution. Alphatec NEXoss is supported by in vitro and in vivo clinical data.

"We are pleased to highlight our newest products, as well as the entire Alphatec Spine product portfolio, at the 27 th annual NASS meeting this month. We also look forward to meeting many surgeons, investors and analysts at NASS," said Les Cross, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Alphatec Spine. "Each new product represents the latest in our technology and provides unique benefits that deliver real value to surgeons, hospitals and patients. Our strategy is to deliver a continuous stream of new products that are focused on minimally invasive techniques and Biologics solutions into an expanding geographical footprint. We are proud to play a role in helping patients who suffer from spinal disorders and chronic pain, regain their active lifestyles."

In addition, on Thursday, October 25 at 10:00 am in Hall B, Alphatec Spine will participate in the NASS Solution Showcase and will present "Introducing Trestle Luxe Anterior Cervical Plating and Initial Clinical Experience". The Company will also offer interactive Sawbones Workshops at its booth (booth #1116) during exhibit hours.
