NEW OPUS ONE CLINICAL RESULTS

OUTCOMES IN 206 PATIENTS TREATED WITH OSTEOCOOL™ RF ABLATION

opus one 12 month study results demonstrated pain relief and improvement of Quality of Life1-3 that was:

SWIFT 3 Days Post-Procedure

SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS AT ALL VISITS

SUSTAINED THROUGH 12 MONTHS

OPuS One: Outcomes from 206 patients treated with up to 12 months follow-up.

Pain Relief

Chart showing a decrease in pain over the course of six months. Pain levels were rated at 8.2 out of 10 pre-ablation, and then 3.5 six months after ablation.

OPuS One: Published primary manuscript from first 100 patients treated.

Quality of Life

Chart showing an increase in quality of life over the course of twelve months.  Quality of life increased from 0.50 to 0.74 over that period of time..

Study Design

The OsteoCool Post-Market Study, “OPuS One,” is a prospective multicenter study in the United States, Europe, and Canada. The goal of the study is to collect real-world outcomes on effectiveness and safety among a cohort of patients who have been treated with the OsteoCool™ RF ablation system.

OBJECTIVES OF THE 12-MONTH ANALYSIS:

  • To characterize change in pain scores and quality of life from baseline through 12 months in patients with metastatic bone lesions of the spine.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Pain
  • Function
  • Quality of life
  • Medication

POST PROCEDURE FOLLOW-UP:

  • 3 days
  • 1 week
  • 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12- months
Additional study details

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

INDICATIONS

  • Intended for palliative treatment in spinal procedures by ablation of metastatic malignant lesions in a vertebral body
  • Coagulation and ablation of tissue in bone during surgical procedures including palliation of pain associated with metastatic lesions involving bone in patients who have failed or are not candidates for standard therapy
  • Ablation of benign bone tumors such as osteoid osteoma

RISKS

  • As a consequence of electrosurgery, damage to surrounding tissue through iatrogenic injury could occur
  • Pulmonary embolism
