Case Studies

The iFuse Trauma Technique

The iFuse 3D™ Implant

  • Triangular implant geometry provides immediate stabilization.
  • Unique design provides press fit fixation between the implant and adjacent osseous walls.
  • 31x greater rotational resistance vs. 7.3mm screw.82
  • 3D printed implant with porous surface facilitates bone ongrowth.17
  • Fenestrated structure allows for bone through growth and accommodates bone graft.17
  • Porous surface self harvests bone during insertion.17
  • Rigid titanium construction provides an implant that is 18x stronger than the worst-case physiologic load, thus fortifying the SI joint.83
  • More than 5x fewer revisions after fusion with iFuse vs. iliosacral screws.81

Clinical Brief

  1. Retrospective, multicenter review of 50 patients with high and low energy pelvic trauma treated with the iFuse Implant System® in adjunct to traditional hardware fixation
  2. Average decrease in Visual Analog Scale (VAS) pain score from 8.9 at time of fracture to 1.9 at last follow-up
  3. On average, functional mobility was restored to pre-fracture status
