Live Webcast: From Texas Back Institute & Plano Presbyterian Center for Diagnostics and Surgery: April 25, 2007 at 12:00 PM CDT (17:00 UTC)

PLANO, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 25, 2007 -- See the least invasive solution for truly percutaneous 360-degree lumbar fusion at L5-S1. The AxiaLIF® 360™ procedure will be presented in a live webcast from Texas Back Institute & Plano Presbyterian Center for Diagnostics and Surgery at 12 Noon CDT (17:00 UTC) on

AxiaLIF 360° combines the stability of the TranS1® 3D Axial Rod™ with percutaneous facet screws to provide a percutaneous fusion and stabilization solution at L5-S1. The AxiaLIF 360° system provides posterior stability comparable to pedicle screw fixation. This least invasive system allows atraumatic access to the facet joints, no muscle splitting or stripping, and there is less morbidity and blood loss compared to pedicle screw fixation. The AxiaLIF 360° system preserves native soft tissue, provides robust anterior fixation with a posterior tension band, and can be reproducibly completed in 60-90 minutes.

Texas Back Institute surgeon Dan Bradley, MD will perform the procedure and accept questions from viewers during the live webcast.
