Superion® InterSpinous Spacer for treatment of moderate degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis: durable three-year results of a randomized controlled trial
Journal of Pain Research, 2015.
On May 20, 2015, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Superion® InterSpinous Spacer (ISS) (Superion®) for commercial distribution in the United States. Not requiring concomitant surgical decompression, this is the second “stand-alone” interspinous device approved by the FDA. This pivotal regulatory decision substantiates the graduation of the Superion® device from experimental to an acceptable clinical practice modality for the treatment of intermittent symptoms of neurogenic claudication secondary to moderate degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis.
