A study for those undergoing MLF Surgery

Official Title: SIJ Stabilization in Long Fusion to the Pelvis: Randomized Controlled Trial

Purpose:

To determine whether placement of iFuse-3D across the ssacroiliac joint (SIJ) in the Bedrock configuration provides
clinical and/or radiographic benefits in patients undergoing multilevel spine fusion (MLF) surgery with fixation to the pelvis

c. Grade IV spondylolisthesis
2. Prior sacroiliac joint fusion/fixation on either side
3. Presence of spinal cord stimulator
4. Presence of severe hip pain that could impair functional and quality of life improvement from complex spine surgery
5. Surgeon plans to use iliac screw for pelvic fixation
6. Severe osteoporosis
7. Known allergy to titanium or titanium alloys
8. Current local or systemic infection that raises the risk of surgery
9. Currently receiving or seeking short- or long-term worker's compensation and/or currently involved in injury litigation related to the SIJ or low back pain.
