Aurora Spine Corporation (TSX VENTURE:ASG) announced today that it has received
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for additional sizes of
the company's sterile-packed ZIP ULTRA(TM) Minimally Invasive Interspinous
Fusion System and clearance for the company's new sterile-packed ZIP(TM) MIS
system.


The additional ZIP ULTRA sizes, 35mm and 40mm, expand the company's growing
portfolio to better conform to patient anatomy. This is another step in Aurora
Spine's effort to provide the highest quality products to improve the techniques
and outcomes of spine surgery and help patients resume their normal routines as
quickly as possible. The additional sizes have already been used in surgeries in
Europe under the company's CE Mark approval.


The ZIP(TM) features non-articulating bone anchors, Aurora Spine's patent
pending one-step locking mechanism with no set screw and a large graft space
designed for biologic material. With the receipt of the FDA clearance for the
ZIP in all three sizes (35mm, 40mm and 45mm), the new ZIP line will be available
at the end of the third quarter of 2014.


"The receipt of these additional FDA 510(k) clearances for our ZIP Ultra(TM) and
ZIP(TM) MIS Interspinous Fusion System is another key milestone for Aurora Spine
and allows us to expand our spinal product portfolio in the U.S. and key global
markets. This achievement is a testament to the ongoing dedication and
perseverance of our team," said Trent J. Northcutt, President and Chief
Executive Officer of Aurora Spine. "I am delighted we have obtained additional
FDA clearances, especially given the overwhelming response for the ZIP devices.
The success of our screw-less spine procedure is a testament to our laser focus
on disruptive technology and our commitment to 'Simplifying the Complex'."
