Inspired Spine reached more than 1,500 oblique lateral lumbar interbody spinal fusion procedures.
The minimally invasive procedure can be as short as 30 minutes and produces up to 90 percent less blood loss than a traditional fusion, according to a June 21 news release. Inspired Spine developed two derivative lumbar fusion techniques from the OLLIF approach: MIS-DLIF and MIS-DTIF.
There have been no deep infections during the first 1,500 procedures, the release said. On average, the OLLIF procedure can save hospitals $9,500 per case.
