Easy to use accessories to identify spinal nerve roots during iFuse ProcedureSM 

 

Efficient confidence in implant placement

A three-dimensional representation of the lumbar spine, sacrum, and ilium. Red dashed outlines depict common positioning of three iFuse Implants™ across the sacroiliac joint. Of the neural structures shown, the L5, S1, and S2 nerves (labeled in the figure) are at greatest risk of injury during such procedures.1

Safeguard optimal implant placement 

  • Highly variable and dysmorphic anatomy of the sacrum, combined with difficulty visualizing bony landmarks on fluoroscopy may lead to sub-optimal implant placement
  • EMG monitoring may provide useful data to assist intraoperative maneuvering during implant placement1 

May improve efficiency when neuromonitoring iFuse2 

  • Designed to optimize workflow and streamlined for iFuse procedureSM 
  • Only product cleared for use with the iFuse Implant System® 

 

Neuromonitoring Kit Components

 

GUIDE PIN SLEEVE

The Neuromonitoring Kit is indicated for stimulation of peripheral motor nerves, including spinal nerve roots, for localization and identification during surgery.

The iFuse Implant System® is intended for sacroiliac fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint dysfunction that is a direct result of sacroiliac joint disruption and degenerative sacroiliitis. This includes conditions whose symptoms began during pregnancy or in the peripartum period and have persisted postpartum for more than 6 months. There are potential risks associated with the iFuse Implant System and Neuromonitoring Kit. It may not be appropriate for all patients and all patients may not benefit.
