Aurora Spine Announces Launch of MIS EOS™ Interbody System Featuring TiNano™

CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 10, 2014) - Aurora Spine Corporation (TSX VENTURE:ASG) is excited to announce the launch of another new product in its line of next generation MIS lumbar interbody cages. EOS™ is Aurora Spine's modern, minimally invasive TLIF interbody fusion system featuring TiNano titanium spray coating technology. TiNano coated PEEK-OPTIMA cages will allow for the possibility of bone ongrowth due to its porous structure.

"The MIS EOS Interbody System (TLIF) is a fundamental part of Aurora's expanding TiNano Interbody portfolio," said Bryan Okamoto, Aurora Spine's Engineering Manager. "Using a traditional TLIF approach, the EOS system features cages with a self-distracting nose and an articulating cage inserter which aids in establishing optimal cage placement in addition to all the benefits of the TiNano coating. The addition of this new system will continue to solidify Aurora's TiNano Interbody products in the marketplace."

The TiNano surface is created by thermal spray technology of Titanium particles to support osseointegration. TiNano coated cages provide several advantages including: additional roughness and porosity, increased possibility of bone ongrowth and enhanced radiographic visibility. TiNano will be available on all Aurora interbody cages, including Cervical, PLIF, OLIF, TLIF, ALIF and LLIF.
