Zyga Technology announced the issuance of a U.S. Patent No. 9,662,124, relating to the design of the SImmetry Decorticator®.
The instrument supports preparation of the sacroiliac (SI) joint for fusion by creating bleeding bone and space for autologous bone graft through a lateral approach that avoids disruption of supporting ligaments.
Based on data from a 19-patient, prospective, multi-center study of Minimally Invasive Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Surgery with Decortication, Zyga is sponsoring the EVoluSIon Study, a prospective, 40-site, 250-patient trial to evaluate long-term fusion and pain reduction in patients receiving SImmetry® Sacroiliac Joint Fusion.
