Surgentec releases whitepaper featuring A Novel Decortication and Graft Delivery Technique for Minimally Invasive Spine Fusion Surgery
Minimally invasive (MIS) lumbar fusion has become a popular alternative to traditional methods of lumbar decompression and fusion. When compared with the open technique, the minimally invasive approach can result in decreased pain and blood loss as well as a shorter length of hospitalization. However, the narrower working channel in the MIS technique increases the difficulty of decortication and bone grafting. This paper describes a novel set of instruments, the 3D GraftRasp System by SurGenTec, that physicians can use to help create an optimal environment to fuse the facet joints and lateral gutters during minimally invasive lumbar fusions. Retrospective clinical data from case reports are presented on 3 patients that underwent single level and multi-level MIS lumbar fusions utilizing the 3D GraftRasp System. The case reports show that the 3D GraftRasp System can provide a viable solution for physicians wanting to perform a minimally invasive procedure to achieve fusion while decorticating and packing bone graft around the facet joints and lateral gutters.
