Study Results: PainTEQ LinQ in SI Joint Dysfunction

An independent study introduced the concept of a posterior approach to SI (sacroiliac) joint fusion as a feasible adjunct and salvage technique for patients with inadequate pain relief from other minimally invasive surgical procedures. The study design was a multicenter, retrospective, observational analysis of 111 patients.

The study utilized the LinQ SI Joint Stabilization System from PainTEQ, a minimally-invasive, single implant designed to encourage long-term fusion and help patients immediately regain joint stability.

Overall, the mean patient-reported pain relief following posterior SI joint fusion was 67.6%. In patients with a history of failed back surgery syndrome, the mean patient-reported pain relief was 76.5%.

The LinQ SI Joint Stabilization System provides SI joint dysfunction patients with a minimally invasive treatment to combat pain. After a thorough diagnostic process, physicians can help alleviate, and in many cases, eliminate sacroiliac joint pain through PainTEQ's LinQ procedure. LinQ's drill-less approach helps patients immediately regain joint stability with a shorter recovery time than traditional fusion.
