Clinical Trial to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of HyalospineÂ® in Lumbar Laminectomy or Laminotomy
The aim of this Phase II trial is to evaluate safety and efficacy of Hyalospine in patients undergoing lumbar laminectomy or laminotomy for degenerative spinal stenosis or disk herniation. The device is used as an adjunct in lumbar spine surgery to prevent post- surgical fibrosis and adhesions, and improve patient outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Narrowing of the spinal canal.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A degenerative spinal disease that can involve any part of the VERTEBRA, the INTERVERTEBRAL DISK, and the surrounding soft tissue.
The ratio of maximum blood flow to the MYOCARDIUM with CORONARY STENOSIS present, to the maximum equivalent blood flow without stenosis. The measurement is commonly used to verify borderline stenosis of CORONARY ARTERIES.
Outgrowth of immature bony processes or bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE) from the VERTEBRAE, reflecting the presence of degenerative disease and calcification. It commonly occurs in cervical and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS.
This study tests the effectiveness of different treatments for the three most commonly diagnosed conditions of the lower backbone (lumbar spine). The purpose is to learn which of two commo...
The primary purpose of the study is to measure the change in severity of symptoms and ability to function in every day activities in patients suffering from degenerative lumbar spinal sten...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the ACADIA™ Facet Replacement System is effective in the treatment of spinal stenosis. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the...
Neurogenic intermittent claudication is a specific symptom complex occurring in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. Characteristic of this disease is the occurrence of increasing leg, bu...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the In-Space compared to the X STOP Interspinous Process Distraction (IPD) device ("X STOP") for the treatment of p...
Foot drop is a condition that can substantially add to the disability of patients with degenerative lumbar spinal disorders. The most common degenerative conditions associated with foot drop are lumba...
Different treatment options exist for symptomatic single-level degenerative anterolisthesis and stenosis. While simple micro-decompression has been advocated lately, most authors recommend posterior d...
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a narrowing of the spinal canal that causes mechanical compression of the spinal nerve roots. The compression of these nerve roots can cause leg pain, as well as neurog...
Cauda equina syndrome following decompression for spinal stenosis appears to occur more commonly than the literature suggests. A large series of spinal stenosis decompressions was reviewed. Based on t...
Narrowing of the spinal canal or foramina is a common finding in spine imaging of the elderly. Only when symptoms of neurogenic claudication and/or cervical myelopathy are present is a spinal stenosis...
