BELGRADE, Mont., Nov. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American:XTNT), a leader in the development of regenerative medicine products and medical devices, today announced it has entered into a distribution agreement with curasan, Inc. adding a premium line of synthetic scaffolds to its biologics portfolio. 

Matriform, Xtant’s brand of the curasan synthetic product portfolio for orthopedic applications, consists of a composition of pure phase Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate (β-TCP) and porcine collagen, and interconnected porosity with a variety of micro, meso, and macro pores. Distribution of Matriform will mark Xtant’s entrance into the US orthopedic Bone Graft Substitute market, the largest market globally with an annual market size of over $800 million.

"We are excited to be enhancing our biologic portfolio offering with a line of synthetic scaffolds, which will make us a comprehensive biologic supplier for our customers and their patients," said Carl O’Connell, CEO of Xtant Medical. "Our team has been very strategic in finding a partner with a product that meets our expectations for superior handling and clinical efficacy with proven mechanisms of action."

"It’s an important milestone for us to partner with such a forward-thinking company as Xtant Medical and expand our distribution footprint within North America. Adding additional private label distributors within the US and globally alongside our direct sales teams provide great opportunities for curasan and our distributor partners. Xtant has a great reputation for providing innovative and relevant products to orthopedic surgeons and we are pleased to expand our relationship further with Xtant." said Michael Schlenk, CEO of curasan AG. 

Matriform will be available in two formulations, and in various volumes for a multitude of orthopedic applications. The flexible strips are high density with high elasticity, making them easily adaptable to bony defects when hydrated. The moldable version is a low density bioceramic that becomes malleable when hydrated. The two formulations received 510k clearance for orthopedic applications in the US in December of 2016, and has been a synthetic of choice in Europe for a variety of orthopedic procedures for over 20 years.
