U.S. revenues increased $4.6 million, or 19.4%, primarily due to increased sales of our Zodiac, Illico, Novel and Trestle product lines. In addition, Asia revenues increased $0.3 million, or 4.6%, due to both sales volume, ($0.1 million), and the favorable affect of foreign currency exchange rates. We recognized revenue of $3.9 million for European revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2010 compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009. The increase in European revenues is primarily due to our expanded distribution network and increased sales in our Zodiac, Illico and OsseoFix product lines.

The increase was primarily due to $2.7 million in product costs associated with the increased sales volume, increased depreciation costs of $0.7 million based on a larger installed surgical instruments asset base, higher amortization expenses of $0.1 million related to new intangible assets and increased royalty payments of $0.2 million associated with the increased sales volume.
