Medicrea Announces Eurospine 2018 Presence and Highlights a Recently Published Study Validating Its Predictive Modelling Approach for AIS Patients
The Medicrea Group (Euronext Growth Paris: FR0004178572 – ALMED, PEA-PME eligible, and OTCQX: MNRTY and MNRTF), pioneering the transformation of spinal surgeries through Artificial Intelligence, predictive modeling and patient specific implants with its UNiD™ ASI (Adaptive Spine Intelligence) technology, announced today that the Company is attending the Eurospine 2018 meeting taking place in Barcelona, Spain, from September 19th to 21st, where UNiD™ LAB biomedical engineers will showcase the most recent developments of the Company’s UNiD™ ASI technology.
Denys Sournac, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “At Eurospine 2018, our team of biomedical engineers will show attending spine surgeons how the UNiD™ASI technology answers the gap left by traditional implant manufacturers through a demonstration of the UNiD™ HUB, a software platform that fully integrates surgical planning through machine learning to generate personalized implants that are adapted to each individual patient and at the same time to each individual surgeon technique.”
Five years after its initial launch in September 2013, over 2,800 patients have benefited from UNiD™ ASI 100% proprietary pre-operative planning technologies and services associated with patient-specific spinal realignment rods, with a strong acceleration in adoption rate in 2018 (+60% cases in year-to-date 2018) especially in the USA.
Since its inception, the technology supported surgeons specializing in adult indications with planning services and patient-specific implants focused on restoring sagittal alignment. More recently, surgeons have found the technology to be fully applicable to the pediatric population as well. As such, surgeons have increasingly published on the application of UNiD™ ASI in pediatrics and have begun to demonstrate the importance of respecting sagittal parameters in the pediatric population.
Jean-Luc Clément, M.D. of Fondation Lenval (Nice, FRANCE) and UNiD™ASI user recently published the Article titled “Surgical Increase of Thoracic Kyphosis Increases Unfused Lumbar Lordosis in Selective Fusion for Thoracic Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis”. In this article, Jean-Luc Clément emphasizes “...the importance of restoring adequate kyphosis and respecting the links between sagittal parameters (thoracic kyphosis, lumbar lordosis and pelvic incidence) specifically in adolescent surgery. A task which is close to impossible for a surgeon without the appropriate tools that are now provided by Medicrea through UNID™ ASI Platform. Data analytics and predictive modeling are topics that surgeons and healthcare professionals recognize will shape the future of care and the way we view spine surgery.”
The recent publication by Jean-Luc Clément, M.D. et al. hypothesizes that correction of hypokyphosis in AIS increases lumbar lordosis, especially its proximal part by reciprocal changes. The study involves 111 patients selectively instrumented using the ST2R technique on the thoracic region with 2 years of follow-up. The author demonstrates and evaluates that non-instrumented lumbar lordosis was directly increased and proportionally impacted by the thoracic kyphosis correction.
Jean-Luc Clément also stated, “These results are supporting the use of the UNiD™ ASI platform to obtain the expected patient-specific thoracic kyphosis to adapt lumbar lordosis to the patient’s specific pelvic incidence.”
Medicrea’s proprietary UNiD™ ASI technology and services integrates numerous proprietary predictive models, one of which takes into consideration the post-operative compensatory mechanisms occurring on the non-instrumented portion of the spine both above and below the construct. Through the UNiD™ HUB, the algorithms use large amounts of data to generate intelligent surgical planning through machine learning while simultaneously allowing the surgeon to perform detailed, custom analysis of the cases. Medicrea uses proprietary data science to drive improved outcomes and economic efficiencies in spine surgery.
Meeting attendees are invited to learn more about Medicrea at Booth 33B.

Seoul Semiconductor Wins Patent Litigation against Everlight in Germany and Is Awarded Statutory Litigation Costs11.12.2018 14:00 | Pressemelding
Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ:046890) (“Seoul”), a leading global innovator of LED products and technology, announced that it won a patent litigation against Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. (“Everlight”) in Germany. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20181211005233/en/ Seoul Semiconductor's Headquarters in Korea (Photo: Business Wire) The patent involved in this litigation relates to an LED package structure for thermal dissipation. Everlight purchased this patent from a U.S. company in 2017, and subsequently brought a patent lawsuit against Seoul in the Manheim Court of Germany. In December 2018, however, the Manheim Court ruled in favor of Seoul and ordered that Everlight, as the losing party, should bear the statutory costs of the court proceeding. In the United Kingdom, Seoul had already won a patent litigation against Everlight earlier this year. At that time, the UK Patent Court also ordered that Ever
