CoorsTek Medical announced the first human implantation of MIS sacroiliac fusion implants, developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic to address sacroiliac joint dysfunction. The system received FDA 510(k) clearance in December 2016, and CoorsTek Medical is now pursuing opportunities with leading OEMs for commercialization and distribution.
The Integrity-SI Fusion system embraces the principles of arthrodesis, including thorough joint preparation, compression and stability via the proprietary instrumentation. It also utilizes proprietary BladeX MIS decortication technology with a rigid, deployable cutter that aggressively prepares the joint surface through a cannula and creates an optimum space using single-use, disposable blades, delivering maximal bone graft. The system uses one incision to insert the single implant, or a primary and a secondary implant for rotation stability, per surgeon preference. The implants are cleared for use with or without hydroxyapatite coating.
