Clinical study results indicate the outcome of pain reduction after implanting the Inspan interspinous distraction decompression device. The study focused on outpatient interspinous lumbar fixation for degenerative intervertebral disc disorders with spinal stenosis using Inspan interspinous fixation. Unlike extension block designs, the Inspan device fixates the spine to allow immediate stability, distraction, decompression and fusion.
This retrospective study reports the clinical outcome of pain reduction after implanting the Inspan interspinous distraction decompression device. The study was conducted across 13 patients with a 68-year median age, all with chronic pain, and a 19-month median follow-up time. The procedures were performed on patients diagnosed with degenerative intervertebral disc disorders and underlying spinal stenosis. There were no complications, no revisions or any implant failures. In addition, post-op pain measured by the Numeric Pain Rating Scale showed statistically significant pain reduction for back and leg pain.
Dr. Pandey, President, and COO of Inspan, said, “Inspan has a long clinical track record since 2010, and we have continuously incorporated feedback from our doctors to improve the device, instruments, and technique. We will continue our commitment to innovation and listen to our doctors.”
