Cook Medical is pleased to announce the sale of its comprehensive family of vertebroplasty products to IZI Medical Products, LLC. This sale includes the Duro-Ject® Osteo-Site®, Osteo-Force® and Vertefix® brands in addition to other needles, injectors and cements. Moving this product family from Cook Medical to IZI Medical Products is a positive decision for both companies and for the patients impacted by spinal fractures.

“In the US, there’s an estimated 700,000 vertebral fractures a year due to osteoporosis1,” said Pete Yonkman, president of Cook Medical and Cook Group. “We were not giving this product family the resources it needed to continue to advance, so we’re pleased to have found it a new home with IZI Medical. The sale of our vertebroplasty product family allows us to concentrate on our primary product lines while allowing IZI Medical to focus on helping to treat patients suffering from spinal fractures.”

The vertebroplasty product family is used in the growing market for treating vertebral compression fractures through a minimally invasive procedure. IZI has planned a significant investment in a dedicated sales force, international distributor network, select product enhancements and new product development.

This product family is manufactured in Cook Medical’s Bloomington, Indiana, facility where many other products are built. This change will not impact that facility or its employees.
