Aurora Spine Corporation : AURORA SPINE RECEIVES FDA 510(k) CLEARANCE FOR ADDITIONAL SIZES OF STERILE-PACKED ZIP ULTRA(TM) AND THE NEW ZIP(TM) MIS SYSTEM

Carlsbad, California, April 24, 2014
/Marketwired/ - Aurora Spine Corporation (TSXV: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'."
