Amplify™ Surgical, Inc. Announces First Surgical Cases with dualX™ Dual Expanding Interbody Fusion System

MISSION VIEJO, Calif., March 6, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Amplify Surgical, Inc., a privately-held spinal device company, focusing on the development and commercialization of minimally-invasive, innovative spinal technologies, today announced the completion of several surgical cases with the dualX Dual Expanding Interbody Fusion System.

The first two lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) procedures implanting dualX were performed by two spine surgeons, Larry T. Khoo, MD, and Payman R. Emmanuel, MD, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles, CA. These spinal fusion procedures were performed to treat degenerative disc disease in the lumbar spine.

Dr. Khoo also performed a two-level transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedure with two dualX devices. "The dualX device was simple to implant and provided for a solid fusion foundation with its bi-planar expansion," said Dr. Khoo. "We first expanded dualX horizontally to maximize the footprint, and then, we expanded the implant vertically to provide disc height restoration with lordosis. dualX provides the maximum area for bone grafting. Both procedures went well, and our patients are doing great."

A few weeks later, to treat complex degenerative pathologies in the lumbar spine, the next two dualX devices were implanted in TLIF procedures performed by two orthopedic spine surgeons, Christopher A. Yeung, MD, and Nima Salari, MD, at the Desert Institute for Spine Care (DISC) in Phoenix, AZ.

Dr. Yeung explains, "I chose to use dualX in my TLIF procedure as it provides a compact insertion footprint to accommodate my minimally-invasive approach and a large post-expansion footprint for spinal restoration and bone grafting to ensure a good clinical outcome. In this procedure, I was able to get a good spondylolisthesis reduction and sagittal realignment with lordosis for the patient."

The dualX technology is comprised of a family of titanium expandable interbody devices designed to be implanted in lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF), posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) spinal procedures. The dualX portfolio contains varying footprints, heights and degrees of lordosis with post-expansion bone grafting to provide a customized anatomical fit for a clinically-successful fusion environment.

"The dualX system is a comprehensive system of dual expanding implants to restore disc height and sagittal alignment in lumbar spinal fusion procedures," explained Andy Choi, Chief Executive Officer, Amplify Surgical, Inc. "First, dualX expands horizontally to provide a wide base for stability and spinal support. Then, the implant expands vertically to aide in spinal restoration and to support spinal fusion, the ultimate goal of these procedures."

The dualX Dual Expanding Interbody Fusion System is in early release and available to a select group of spine surgeons in the United States. The Company looks forward to the general release of dualX during the second quarter of 2019.

Rich millennials are ditching the golf communities of their parents for a new kind of neighborhood

Rancho Mission Viejo Ca
A new type of housing community known as an "agrihood" is popping up around the US.Agrihoods are built around working farms and are replacing the golf communities once favored by baby boomers. There are about 150 agrihoods in the US and more in development.

Millennials are saying "so long" to the country club and "hello" to the farm.

Many so-called agrihoods — short for "agricultural neighborhoods" — are cropping up around the US, and they’re aimed at farm-to-table-loving millennials.

Loosely defined by the Urban Land Institute as master-planned housing communities with working farms as their focus, agrihoods have ample green space, barns, and outdoor community kitchens. Some boast greenhouses and rows and rows of fruit trees. The homes are typically built to high environmental standards — think solar panels and composting.

Agrihoods are designed to appeal to young, active families who love to eat healthy and spend time outdoors — and they’re not off the grid.

In fact, there are about 150 agrihoods across the country, according to the Urban Land Institute, and some are minutes from bustling cities like Atlanta, Phoenix, and Fort Collins, Colorado. That they don’t have to trade in the city for sustainable living is most likely a big attractor for millennials, who represent the largest segment of American homebuyers today.

Paul Habibi, a professor of real estate at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management, told The Orange County Register that agrihoods represented a "confluence of economic profits, environmental good, and social benefit" — an especially attractive offer to millennials.

"They actually want a benefit to society," Habibi said.

Agrihoods could become the 21st-century version of those tony golf communities baby boomers flocked to in the 1990s. Twenty-five years ago, moving near a golf course was a status symbol; the real estate was highly prized, in large part because of the green space and the views.

But millennials aren’t interested in that type of manicured neighborhood. In today’s culture, where young people favor farm-to-table fare and wax poetic about "clean living," agrihoods are just what they’re searching for.

"Forget about the golf courses — our buyers want to have a real environment," Theresa Frankiewicz, the vice president of community development for Crown Community Development, said at the Urban Land Institute’s 2016 Food & Real Estate Forum. Frankiewicz is involved in the development of a 6,800-acre agrihood near Tucson, Arizona.

In some places, communities are doing away with the golf course altogether to make room for sustainable living.

Developers in Palm Springs, California, are transforming an 18-hole golf course into a 70-acre olive-tree grove, The Register reported. It will serve as the epicenter of a new 300-acre agrihood called Miralon, which is scheduled to break ground later this year and eventually include dog parks, exercise stations, fire pits, and over six miles of hiking paths formerly used for golf carts.

The community is expected to include 1,150 single-family homes, townhouses, and condos. And with homes going from the high $300,000s to the $700,000s or more, residents will be paying a premium for access to fresh food and nature.

Rancho Mission Viejo, the development company based in Southern California that trademarked the term "agrihood" in 2014, is using its focus on sustainable living to draw young families — and even active retirees — to its Esencia and Sendero communities.

Prescription discounts channeled to patients in Trump plan

The Trump administration has unveiled a plan to channel now-hidden prescription drug rebates directly to patients, saying it would bypass middlemen and lower prices for consumers.

The proposed regulation from Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar would eliminate behind-the-scenes discounts among drugmakers, insurers and go-betweens and instead require that they be paid directly to consumers when they buy their medications.

The idea is to do away with a hidden cost seen as contributing to artificially high list prices for prescription drugs. The proposal was co-authored with the Health and Human Services inspector general’s office.

The plan unveiled Thursday comes as President Donald Trump is under political pressure to deliver results on his repeated promises to slash prescription drug costs.
