PLAINSBORO, N.J., Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq:IART) today announced that Surgical Products magazine has awarded Integra's LED Headlight System 1st place in the "Capital Equipment" category of their 2012 "Excellence in Surgical Products Awards" (ESP Awards). The LED Headlight is showcased in the November/December issue of the magazine.

The winners of the 4th annual ESP Awards were determined by the magazine's readers, who have had hands-on experience with the products up for nomination. Readers voted for the companies and products that they felt contributed most to surgical performance, efficiency and safety.

"We are honored that our headlight system was selected as one of the top products by readers of Surgical Products magazine," said Dan Reuvers, President, Instruments. "This is a nice validation by our customers that we're helping surgeons limit uncertainty by equipping them with a bright and long-lasting headlight that allows them to move about the operating room freely."

Integra's LED Headlight System is a surgical headlight designed to deliver the cool brightness and color surgeons need for visibility, along with increased mobility in the operating room. Its vibrant color rendition maximizes visualization of critical anatomy across a broad range of surgical procedures. Its 25,000+ hour lamp life helps limit uncertainty by ensuring a dramatically longer life than more traditional xenon surgical lighting systems, which have a lamp life of approximately 1,000 hours. The LED Headlight System also provides greater mobility with a lightweight battery option that allows surgeons untethered mobility within the operating room, along with a lightweight 20-foot cord that provides a backup power option.
