SI-Bone will feature its new iFuse-Navigation Set and iFuse 3-D implant at the upcoming North American Spinal Society annual meeting.

Here are five key points:

 

1. The iFuse-Navigation Set is designed to allow surgeons to perform minimally invasive SI joint iFuse procedures using o-arm imaging systems and the StealthStation navigations system.

 

2. The iFuse-Navigation Set is currently seeking FDA clearance. David Polly, MD, of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, will present his experience using the navigation set.

 

3. SI-Bone's iFuse 3-D Implant is intended to enhance bony ongrowth, ingrowth, through growth and intra-articular fusion. Additionally, the implant is designed to be used during minimally invasive surgery to fuse the SI joint.

 

4. The iFuse 3-D implant is a fenestrated triangular titanium implant with a propriety 3-D printed porous trabecular surface.

 

5. SI-Bone first received FDA clearance for its implant system in 2009. Since then the company has grown into a leader in developing medical devices for SI joint fusion.
