RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pioneer Surgical Technology today announces the market launch of their new portfolio of biologic products, Legato, designed to be used in extremity, trauma, and general orthopaedic indications.
Legato Bone Void Filler will be showcased during the 2011 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) convention in San Diego this week. Legato is a resorbable, collagen-based implant that acts as a scaffold for the in-growth of new bone and is designed to have broad appeal in extremity, trauma and general orthopaedic indications. In addition, Legato forms a cohesive and adhesive product easily shaped to defects while maximizing direct contact with host bone.
Regarding Pioneer's latest product introduction Mr. Shane Ray, General Manager – Biologics for Pioneer stated, "We are very pleased to expand our product offerings with Legato into the extremities, trauma and general orthopaedics market.
