Minimally invasive SI joint fusion
The iFuse Implant System is intended sacroiliac joint fusion. The procedure typically involves the insertion of three small titanium implants across the SI joint, and is designed to stabilize and fuse the SI joint. Implant lengths range from 30mm to 70mm in 5mm increments with 4.0 and 7.0mm diameters. These implants are delivered to the sacroiliac (SI) joint using a cannulated delivery system and soft tissue protection instruments. This minimally invasive procedure is performed through a small incision and requires about one hour of surgical time. The iFuse may potentially minimize complications often seen with open surgery, reduce blood loss, and reduce average length of hospital stay.
The following surgical technique describes the steps for the implantation of the iFuse Implants.
This short video shows how the iFuse Implants are used in minimally invasive SI joint fusion surgery.
The iFuse Implant System is intended sacroiliac joint fusion. As with all surgical procedures and permanent implants, there are risks and considerations associated with surgery and use of the iFuse Implant. Please review the iFuse Instructions For Use for a complete discussion of contraindications, warnings, precautions, and risks.
