FARMINGDALE, N.Y., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Misonix, Inc. (NasdaqGM:
MSON), an international surgical device company that designs, manufactures and
markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic products for spine surgery,
skull-based surgery, neurosurgery, wound debridement, cosmetic surgery,
laparoscopic surgery and other surgical applications, was cited in a clinical
paper accepted for publication by "The Laryngoscope," a prestigious,
peer-reviewed journal circulated to leading ear, nose, throat and
reconstructive surgeons, entitled "Piezoelectric BoneScalpel Osteotomies in
Osteocutaneous Free Flaps," authored by Wick, et al, from the Department of
Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University Hospitals Ear, Nose, and
Throat Institute; University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Cleveland,
Ohio.Free flaps, in this instance, refer to harvested bone and soft tissue
from donor sites used in reconstructive surgery of the head and neck.

Among the conclusions of the study, it was noted that the Misonix® BoneScalpel
Ultrasonic Bone Cutter offers a safe and efficient method to create precise
cuts during the harvest of bone to be used for reconstructive surgery of the
head and neck, generally required as a result of cancer surgery. Primary
advantages of the device include better tactile control, precise osteotomies
(cuts through bone), a minimal learning curve for the surgeons, and theoretic
protection of vital soft tissue such as vascular structures.

The Misonix® BoneScalpel, which was used to perform the study, is a novel
ultrasonic osteotome (bone cutting device) used for safe, tissue-selective
bone dissection that encourages non-fragmented bone removal and refined
osteotomies while sparing elastic soft tissue structures. Most users report
that the surgical field is relatively bloodless and clean. Loss of viable
bone is minimal and controllable. The BoneScalpel has been used extensively
for bone removal in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, including
deformity surgery. 

"We are proud to be cited by a prestigious peer-reviewed journal for yet
another positive clinical experience with the Misonix BoneScalpel when used in
advanced head and neck surgery," said Michael A. McManus, Jr., President and
Chief Executive Officer of Misonix. "It is our privilege to provide
state-of-the-art head and neck surgery technology to prestigious institutions
such as Cleveland's University Hospitals."
