Nov 13, 2009 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) — MDT | Quote | Chart | News | PowerRating — Medtronic, a medical technology company, has announced the full US market release of Mastergraft Strip, a new ceramic scaffold intended for use in combination with a patient’s own bone for fusing multiple levels of the posterolateral spine.

Mastergraft Strip provides surgeons with a bone grafting option that offers a continuous latticework for longer grafting procedures at the back of the spine, which are often performed when the spine loses stability or its natural shape, said Medtronic.

Donald Kucharzyk, one of the clinical evaluators, said: “The new Mastergraft strip provides the flexibility and ease of use that greatly simplifies my operative technique.”
