Thanks for the reply Harrison. I've still been in kind of a holding pattern. I did contact Lanman's office, but he's 2 months out just for consultations. I was considering contacting Blumenthal this week actually, to see what his availability is.

I also seen that Centinel Spine just got the FDA PMA for the Prodisc Nova, SK, and Vivo on 7/13. They're supposed to be available in Q4, which begins in 5 weeks. So that rules out Bertagnoli for me, since the Nova is his preferred device.

I did see that Spine Innovations sold out to Spineway last week too, so hopefully there's some movement on ESP's in the States soon. I had read in March that they were trying for approval this year as well.
