DePuy Spine, Inc. announced the launch of HEALOS Fx Injectable Bone Graft Replacement (HEALOS Fx). It is the company's first bone graft solution designed specifically for minimally invasive spine surgery (MIS). HEALOS Fx is a moldable, injectable version of HEALOS Bone Graft Replacement that is the company's osteoconductive and osteogenic (when combined with bone marrow aspirate) bone graft substitute which has been shown to achieve fusion rates equivalent to autograft in peer-reviewed, published human clinical studies. HEALOS Fx is a ready-to-use fibrous material which can be molded for open applications or injected via cannulas of differing lengths so as to reach difficult implantation sites in minimally invasive or small void surgical environments. The original form of HEALOS that exists as pre-formed strips of varying sizes has been used in more than 65,000 procedures nationwide and available for more than seven years in the US. HEALOS Fx, that has a cohesive consistency when saturated with the patient's bone marrow, provides both a continuous scaffold for bone formation and the osteoprogenitor cells needed to initiate new bone growth. As part of the healing process the material is resorbed and remodeled into new bone. HEALOS Fx was designed using proprietary nanotechnology that promotes osteoprogenitor cell attachment and maturation. HEALOS Fx comes with a self-contained mixing and delivery device which allows for a smooth, simple mixing motion to create a uniform graft material in less than one minute. HEALOS Fx is compatible with DePuy Spine's minimally invasive VIPER2 Pedicle Screw Fixation System and can also be used with the LifeNet Health VERTIGRAFT portfolio of interbody spacers. HEALOS Fx Injectable Bone Graft Replacement, combined with autogenous bone marrow, is intended for use in filling bony voids or gaps of the skeletal system (i.e., the extremities, spine, and pelvis) which are not intrinsic to the stability of the bony structure. These defects may be surgically created osseous defects or osseous defects resulting from traumatic injury to the bone.
