Considering that the Evil Empire's sales have been suffering, some analysts believe that this will be a shot in the arm for the company's revenue. The spine division had 3% growth last year, could this be mana from heaven? In addition, could this be the death knell for some of the early stage synthetic bone graft companies, if surgeons decide to jump on the Amplify love train?
The success rate for Amplify was 61% as compared to 56% for those receiving autograft. Results after five years found successful operations for 44% of Amplify patients versus 35% for standard care. I guess it goes to prove TSB's observation, if you have enough of capital and lobbying power anything is possible.
