Minimally invasive spinal fusion
This article was originally published in Start Up
A truly minimally invasive procedure for lumbar spinal fusion surgery may finally be on the horizon. The Backstay system from Integral Spine Solutions Inc. employs a proprietary, expandable access device through which a stationary, small implant is advanced and placed in the disc space between two vertebrae, enabling fusion. The device also has incorporated fixation components that reduce or eliminate posterior instrumentation, such as rods and screws, for stabilization.
