PHILADELPHIA, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Premia Spine, a spinal implant company focused on commercializing innovative lumbar solutions, today announced the launch of the ProMIS™ Fixation System with its Advanced MIS screw placement at the International Society for the Advancement of Spine Surgery Meeting in Las Vegas.
Ron Sacher, Chief Executive Officer of Premia Spine, commented, “The ProMIS System is a breakthrough in instrumentation. We have fewer instruments and fewer steps. That saves OR time and reprocessing costs.” ProMIS also offers a unique pedicle screw which is supplied in an individual sterile pack. The Premia Spine screw has a patented surface treatment that promotes bony ingrowth. The proprietary implant surface technology consists of a unique roughened topography that creates an optimal screw-bone response and promotes bone growth into the micro-crevices of the screw surface. A peer-reviewed study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery by Professors Schwartz and Boyan demonstrated significant resistance to pullout forces with the Premia Spine pedicle screw. In the sheep study, 2.3 times the force was required to remove the screw with the surface treatment versus a non-treated screw.
