IMPLANET: Successful First JAZZ Cap® Surgeries in the US

  • First procedures in the US with JAZZ Cap®, the proprietary solution
    addressing a potential market of USD2.5 billion 1
  • Secure and protect pedicle screws in poor quality bone

BORDEAUX, France & BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Regulatory News:

IMPLANET (Euronext Growth: ALIMP, FR0010458729, eligible for PEA-PME
equity savings plans) (Paris:ALIMP) (OTCQX:IMPZY), a medical technology
company specializing in vertebral and knee surgery implants, is
announcing the successful results of the first surgeries using JAZZ Cap®
in the United States.

Following 510(k) clearance in March 2019, the first JAZZ Cap® procedures
have been successfully completed by fellowship trained orthopaedic spine
surgeon Chi Lim, MD in Spartanburg, SC.

JAZZ Cap® is a unique and complete proprietary solution for securing
screws in poor quality bone – a factor in 10% to 30% of vertebral fusion
cases in adult patients2.

Chi Lim, MD of Carolina Orthopaedic & Neurosurgical Associates, said: “I
have been using Implanet’s Jazz Band implants with excellent results in
complex adult deformity indications. The arrival of JAZZ Cap® as part of
the Implanet band range is a major breakthrough in securing and
protecting screws in poor quality bone. This new implant was easy to use
during the first surgeries and has provided encouraging early
post-operative clinical results. We will now follow these patients to
confirm the long term outcomes. In my opinion, JAZZ Cap® will quickly
become an essential implant for spine surgeons.”

Ludovic Lastennet, Implanet’s Chief Executive Officer, commented: “I
am excited to have personally attended Dr. Lim’s initial Jazz Cap®
procedures. The successful completion of these first surgeries represent
a significant step for the development of our company, opening a unique
opportunity in the US degenerative spine market. We anticipate JAZZ Cap®
will become a significant alternative to cement augmented pedicle
screws. Full market release of the technology is scheduled for
September, with a global presentation at the North American Spine
Society Annual Meeting in Chicago.”
