Detailed Description:

The proposed prospective, multi-center, randomized clinical trial is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Superion™ ISS compared to the X-STOP® IPD® device in healthy adults suffering from at least 6 months of moderate spinal stenosis symptoms who have been unresponsive to conservative care. The study endpoint is the rate of overall subject success at 24 months.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   45 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female subjects ≥ 45 years of age
  • Persistent leg/buttock/groin pain, with or without back pain, that is relieved by flexion activities (example: sitting or bending over a shopping cart)
  • Diagnosis of degenerative spinal stenosis of the lumbar spine, defined as the narrowing of the midline sagittal spinal canal (central) and/or narrowing between the facet superior articulating process (SAP), the posterior vertebral margin (lateral recess), and the nerve root canal (foraminal)
  • Must be able to sit for 50 minutes without pain and to walk 50 feet or more

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Axial back pain only
  • Fixed motor deficit
  • Diagnosis of lumbar spinal stenosis which requires any direct neural decompression or surgical intervention other than those required to implant the control or experimental device
  • Unremitting pain in any spinal position
  • Significant peripheral neuropathy or acute denervation secondary to radiculopathy
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis at more than two levels determined pre-operatively to require surgical intervention
  • Significant instability of the lumbar spine as defined by 3mm translation or 5 degrees angulation
  • Sustained pathologic fractures of the vertebrae or multiple fractures of the vertebrae and/or hips
  • Spondylolisthesis or degenerative spondylolisthesis greater than grade 1.0 (on a scale of 1 to 4)
  • Spondylolysis (pars fracture)
  • Morbid obesity, defined as Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 40kg/m2
  • Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus
  • Prior surgery of the lumbar spine
  • Cauda equina syndrome (defined as neural compression causing neurogenic bowel or bladder dysfunction)
  • Infection in the disc or spine, past or present
  • Paget's disease at involved segment or metastasis to the vertebra, osteomalacia, or other metabolic bone disease
  • Tumor in the spine or a malignant tumor except for basal cell carcinoma
  • Involved in pending litigation of the spine or worker's compensation related to the back
