2. The demand for surgical solutions providing relief from ASD-caused pain and disability is rising among the aging population.


3. Dr. Lavelle's poster was titled "A Modular Large Footprint Interbody in Adult Spinal Deformity Patients."


4. Back and leg pain decreases substantially one year after the large footprint posterior placed interbody devices are utilized, according to Dr. Lavelle.

5. ISASS was held in Boca Raton, Fla., from April 12 to April 14.


VTI President and CEO Matt Kyle said, "The InterFuse system's modularity, large foot print, and patient anatomic adaptability can be advantageous for patients presenting with challenging surgical needs."
