M2 PHARMA-June 28, 2017-DePuy Synthes Products acquires Innovative Surgical Solutions LLC for undisclosed amount

(C)2017 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

DePuy Synthes Products Inc reported on Tuesday the completion of the acquisition of Innovative Surgical Solutions LLC for an undisclosed value.

Innovative Surgical Solutions LLC, which is doing business as Sentio, LLC, is a privately-held company that markets innovative nerve localization technology for spine surgery and based in Wixom, Michigan.

The nerve localization is important during many spine procedures, including one minimally invasive approach called lateral surgery, where temporary and permanent neurologic complications are reported in 9.4% and 2.5% of patients, respectively. These complications include pain or weakness in the hip or leg due to stretching or bruising of nerves near the surgical field and are seen despite the use of currently available nerve localization systems, added the company.

In addition, Sentio's platform provides real-time feedback directly to the surgeon on nerve location using adhesive smart-sensors that are applied to the skin. The system can be set up by operating room personnel, does not require a neuromonitoring specialist, and has a minimal footprint in the operating room.

DePuy Synthes Products Inc provides one of the most comprehensive orthopaedics portfolios in the world and is is part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, which is part of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ).
