Life Spine Announces Approval of Spine Outcomes Study

By Julie A. Vetalice

Life Spine announces the approval of a study to help determine optimal outcomes for Open vs. Minimally Invasive Posterior Lumbar Spine Surgery.

“The study provides a comparative platform to help determine which technique demonstrates faster muscular recovery and better functional outcomes.”—Mariusz Knap, Vice President of Marketing

The purpose is to determine which procedure, open PLIF or MIDLIF, using Life Spine’s NAUTILUS® Thoracolumbar Pedicle Screw System and CENTERLINE® Thoracolumbar Cortical Screw System hardware, is less traumatic to the patient and produces better functional outcomes, and to evaluate if a patient type is better suited for a particular surgery. The study will be executed with Emerge Diagnostics and Oklahoma Spine & Brain Institute with approval from the Western Institutional Review Board.

In February, Life Spine announced 2016 revenue growth of +38%.
