Clinical data demonstrating positive patient outcomes over a sustained period of time are essential for all medical treatments. More than thirty articles have been published reporting the safety and effectiveness of the iFuse Implant.1 The iFuse Implant is the only SI joint fusion device with published results from a randomized controlled trial and the only one with multiple clinical studies demonstrating that treatment improved pain, patient function, and quality of life.2 Click here for list of published articles.
Research reported in Open Orthopaedics Journal, on 50 patients that underwent the SI joint fusion procedure with the iFuse Implant, found early and sustained positive outcomes, and the complication rate was low. In this study, patients were contacted after surgery to assess SIJ pain, satisfaction and work status. The patients reported significant improvements in 7 out of 9 categories of daily living. Moreover, 82% of patients were satisfied 40 months after the surgery, and they said they would undergo the same surgery again. It's notable that "13 patients who were out of work were able to return to work.”3
