Coflex®

Coflex® is an interlaminar device used for stabilisation following lumbar decompression with over 15 years of clinical history, and 100,000 implantations worldwide. It should not be confused with interspinous devices that offer no shock absorbing or dynamic capability. The motion preserving Coflex® procedure allows for a direct microsurgical decompression, interlaminar stabilisation™ and foraminal height maintenance. Coflex® has some impressive clinical evidence, with the results of the five year prospective randomised controlled Level 1 study showing it outperformed fusion in nearly all clinical, radiographic, perioperative and health economic outcomes.

Features

– Indicated for use in 1 or 2 level moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis from L1 – L5
– Compressible in extension allowing flexion, increased rotational stability, centre of rotation close to the spinal canal, reduction of facet joint stresses, maintenance/restoration of foraminal height
– 5 implant sizes from 8mm – 16mm to accommodate every patient need
– Simple, compact, colour coded, highly intuitive re-sterilisable instrument kit, or pre-sterile disposable instrument kit
– The Coflex® procedure is simple and elegant with reduced surgical time, surgical intensity and patient morbidity

Benefits

– A truly sustainable alternative to fusion with reduced reoperation rates and lower rates of adjacent segment disease (2 year Davies et al, 2013 and 5 year Musacchio et al, 2016 data)
– Beneficial clinical effects of direct microsurgical decompression, stabilisation, foraminal height maintenance and motion preservation felt at Day 0 compared to successful or unsuccessful fusion
– Back pain in spinal stenosis patients can be successfully addressed through additional stabilisation with Coflex® (Kleinstück et al, 2009)
– 1st and only motion preserving, minimally invasive treatment for moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis
