Burnsville, Minn.-based Inspired Spine announced Jan. 20 the completion of its 1,000 oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion procedure.

Four things to know:

1. OLLIF is a minimally invasive procedure intended for patients with degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, spondylolisthesis, scoliosis and spinal stenosis.

2. The procedure uses a 15mm incision resulting in minimal blood loss and preserves muscles and the adjacent tissue. It is designed to heighten the disc and limit disc movement.

3. Inspired Spine published seven peer-reviewed studies, five of which focus on the OLLIF procedure.

4. A 2019 study reported the mean surgery time for a single-level OLLIF procedure as 56.6 ± 37.7 minutes, with a blood loss of 42.2 ± 31.1 mL and fluoroscopy time of 198.8 ± 87.2 seconds.
