Benvenue Medical Releases MIS TLIF Clinical Data on Luna Device -

Clinical studies of Benvenue Medical's Luna™ interbody fusion device in minimally invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) showed improved patient outcomes and decreased back and leg pain at 12 months post-op. Biomechanically, Luna performed better in reducing intervertebral motion than the Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) control cage, per results of a separate independent analysis of the data. Single center data from 47 consecutive MIS TLIF patients showed lordosis was maintained or improved equally with the Luna lordotic and parallel cages, and back and leg pain were equally relieved for both cages, with a fusion rate of 95%. Findings suggest that the larger footprint of the Luna cage plus preservation of the anterior soft tissue tension band may lead to better biomechanical fusion. Luna is a multi-expandable interbody fusion device that combines ALIF principles with a posterior approach designed to provide anterior column stability, strength and fusion support.
