Superion® Interspinous Spacer System
The Superion Interspinous Spacer (ISS) is a motion-preserving, indirect decompression spinal implant system for the treatment
of moderate lumbar spinal stenosis. Superion is the most advanced and least invasive ISS available or in development.
Key Features of the Superion System Include:
• One piece, expandable implant
• Minimally invasive midline approach
• Motion preserving
• Tissue sparing and fully reversible
The Superion ISS system is designed to deliver the implant through a single small incision in the patient's back, utilizing VertiFlex’ proprietary interspinous access platform. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis and closed with a single suture. Once in place, it may reduce pressure on the nerves that cause pain and allow the return to a more active lifestyle.
Superion has been CE marked since 2007 and is currently an investigational device in the U.S. Enrollment completed in the Superion pivotal IDE trial with 470 patients in December, 2011. It has been implanted in over 2000 patients worldwide.
To date, VertiFlex has compiled the largest, most rigorous, body of device clinical evidence, related to lumbar spinal stenosis.
