Researchers from Plano-based Texas Back Institute supports Centinel Spine's STALIF M portfolio, the devicemaker said Nov. 30.

The study, published in International Journal of Spine Surgery, reviewed 58 patients who had an anterior lumbar interbody fusion with a STALIF standalone cage from March 2011 to December 2018. All patients' outcome scores showed "significant improvement" for Oswestry Disability Index, visual analogue scale, back pain and VAS leg pain, according to a news release.

"Standalone ALIF is a very reasonable alternative to consider for patients that don't require an additional posterior surgery due to instability or severe neural compression and avoids the risks and cost associated with posterior instrumentation, Jessica Shellock, MD, one of the study's authors said in the release.
