MALDEN, Mass., Dec. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- INSPAN LLC (a privately-owned company) is pleased to announce the successful results from a clinical study of outpatient interspinous lumbar fixation for degenerative intervertebral disc disorders with spinal stenosis using the Inspan interspinous fixation device (INSPAN LLC). Unlike the extension block designs, the Inspan device fixates the spine to allow immediate stability, distraction, decompression, and fusion.
The study was performed at the R Choice Surgical Center, an Outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Center in Fremont, Nebraska, USA. The contributing authors of this study are Dr. Shane V. Raikar, MD, Dr. Arun A. Patil, MD, Dr. Deepak K. Pandey, Ph.D., and Mr. Sidharta R. Kumar.
This retrospective study reports the clinical outcome of pain reduction after implanting the Inspan interspinous distraction decompression (IDD) 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 (NPRS) showed statistically significant pain reduction for back and leg pain.
The lead author of the study Dr. Raikar says, "I have been managing spinal pain for my patients for last 23 years by providing them pain management solutions like Kyphoplasty, Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial and Implant, Morphine Pump Trial and Implant, Radiofrequency Nerve Ablation, and other methods that provide lasting pain relief. However, the Inspan interspinous distraction decompression (IDD) device provides a permanent solution by stabilizing the affected spine segment for pain relief and relieving neural compression via distraction of the spinal processes and lamina from spinal stenosis. The instrumentation is easy to use under fluoroscopy. The implant design allows for safe implantation to avoid spinous process fracture and subsidence."
According to Dr. Pandey, President, and COO of Inspan LLC, "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."
"It is very satisfying for me to train pain management physicians to use Inspan safely and effectively and to be readily available to support," – says Prof. Dr. Kingsley R. Chin, Board Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon and CTO of Inspan LLC
