The iO-Flex System®
Precision Decompression from the Inside Out®
iO-Flex® Offers Complete and Thorough Decompression without Compromise
- Direct visualization of the thecal sac through a minimally invasive or open incision
- Patented flexible instruments provide direct decompression in lumbar surgery applications
- Targets and decompresses bone and soft tissue in all three regions of the spine: central canal, lateral recess, and neural foramen
- Preserves facet joint integrity, thus maintaining biomechanical stability
- Cost effective solution – can reduce OR time, blood loss, length of stay and complications4,5
Traditional Instrumentation Has Limitations That Can Result in Compromise
- Over 50% of poor surgical outcomes attributed to lateral spinal stenosis1
- As little as 30% facet joint removal may lead to instability2
3-Step Decompression Utilizing the iO-Flex System
Clinical Utility and Versatility
The iO-Flex System may be utilized to perform a direct decompression in a variety of surgical applications to treat Lumbar spinal stenosis.
