Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease
Infuse® Bone Graft and the LT-Cage® Device are designed to aid in the treatment of degenerative disc disease. Infuse Bone Graft has been tested in multiple clinical studies and has more Level 1 clinical evidence than any other bone growth protein.
Infuse Bone Graft and the LT-Cage Device are indicated for spinal fusion surgery at one level from L2-S1 (the lower part of the back). The small, thimble-like LT-Cage Devices come in multiple sizes to match various patient anatomies.
Spinal fusion surgery for degenerative disc disease involves removing the damaged disc and replacing it with bone graft that will fuse, or join, the two vertebrae together to stabilize the spine. The bone graft placed in the spine is often taken from the patient’s own hip.
Today there is an alternative to taking bone graft from the patient. A potential advantage to having spinal fusion surgery using the Infuse Bone Graft and LT-Cage Device is that it removes the need to collect bone from your hip to fill the inside of the LT-Cage Lumbar Tapered Fusion Device. Infuse Bone Graft comes in a certain formulation for use in the lumbar spine.
Infuse Bone Graft has been used to treat more than 500,000 patients and is used by more than 2,300 surgeons.
