License Grant
The Company announced today that it received a ruling from the U.S. District Court in regards to ongoing royalty rates for Phase I of its patent litigation with Plaintiff. As previously announced, Phase 2 surrounding the cervical plates involved in the dispute was settled.
License Property
On August 17, 2012, Plaintiff filed additional patent claims in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana alleging that the Company various spinal implants (including its CoRoent® XL family of spinal implants) infringe U.S. Patent No. 8,021,430, and that the Company's Osteocel® Plus bone graft product infringes U.S. Patent No. 5,676,146 C2. On August 28, 2012, Plaintiff amended its complaint in the Northern District of Indiana alleging that NuVasive's XLIF® procedure and use of MaXcess IV retractor during the XLIF procedure infringe methodology claims of U.S. Patent No. 8,251,997.
Field of Use
The CoRoent XL is a family of spinal implants used to replace weakened or damaged intervertebral discs. These discs act as the spine’s shock absorber allowing forces to be distributed evenly during the body’s movements.

And MaXcess instruments provide access to the spine in a manner that affords direct visualization and our nerve monitoring systems assist surgeons in avoiding critical nerves.  Our MaXcess system consists of instrumentation and specialized implants that provide maximum access to the spine with minimal soft tissue disruption. MaXcess has a split blade design consisting of three blades that can be positioned to build the surgical exposure in the shape and size specific to the surgical requirements rather than the fixed tube design of other minimally invasive surgical systems. MaXcess’ split blade design also provides expanded access to the spine, which allows surgeons to perform surgical procedures using instruments that are similar to those used in open procedures but with a significantly smaller incision. The ability to use familiar instruments reduces the learning curve and facilitates the adoption of our products. Our system’s illumination of the operative corridor aids in providing surgeons with direct visualization of the patient’s anatomy, without the need for additional technology or other special equipment.
