Inspired Spine has developed the Trident™ Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Fusion System which, following FDA 510(k) clearance, may significantly improve procedure efficiency resulting in surgical procedures that can be performed in under 15 minutes.
Trident employs one main screw and two integrated side screws to deliver three distinct screw approaches into a single trajectory. The integrated delivery and implant system comprises a streamlined multi-use kit, possessing only a handful of instruments to simplify procedural steps. This replaces the multiple component instrument trays currently employed by other SI fusion systems by combining the functionality of a traditional set into a single screw.
Its main screw delivery sleeve provides a targeting guide for side screw delivery, improving procedure efficiency and optimizing imaging requirements. The single incision and corresponding preplanned fixed trajectory substantially decrease procedure time and radiation exposure. The system design includes self-tapping graft collection flutes which reduce the need for additional biologic, while delivering autologous bone graft.
Trident technology limits the number of tools the surgeon needs to use for the procedure, reducing prep-time and allowing the surgeon to operate more efficiently.
"We continue to raise the standard of care for back pain treatment as this SI Joint fusion technique represents another Inspired Spine breakthrough for surgeons and patients alike," said Inspired Spine Chief Medical Officer Dr. Hamid Abbasi.
