Lumbar Implant for Stiffness Augmentation

CE marked: CE2797

Notified Body: BSI

Preserving Mobility & Restoring Function

Degenerative disease of the lumbar spine is a significant cause of disability in the world; it encompasses conditions such as spondylolisthesis, disc degeneration, and lumbar spinal stenosis. 403 million (5.5%) and 103 million (1.41%) individuals worldwide face symptomatic disc degeneration, and spinal stenosis annually, respectively1.

Lumbar Implant for Stiffness Augmentation, LISA aims to restore healthy functions for patients patients with chronic low back pain that accompanies degenerative lesions of grade II, III and IV (Pfirmann MRI classification), unresponsive to non-surgical treatments, by providing an adequate solution to treat the root cause of the pathology without the need to fuse the vertebrea together

LISA is a novel Dynamic Stabilization surgical device designed to treat painful chronic low back pain that accompanies degenerative lesions of grade II, III and IV (Pfirmann MRI classification) and restore the natural movements of the spine.

LISA is CE marked

  • Less rehabilitation
  • Faster recovery

Clinical Values resulting in Economic Advantages

LISA restores the natural flexion & extension movements at the operated area, as well protecting adjacent segments from extraordinary stress.

LISA is complementary to the anatomy and does not require any bony purchase.

LISA has a very light foot print in the body.

LISA is fully & easily reversible.

LISA stabilizes the motion segments by preserving natural mobility, restores spinal sagittal balance through preservation of lumbar lordosis and allows the liberation of the neural structures.

LISA resolves the undertreatment / overtreatment dilemma for Degenerative Disc Disease patients by granting a suitable choice to:

Decompression alone which may further destabilize the segment 

Irreversible fusion procedure, when the lumbar disc is not entirely collapsed
