SI Joint Fusion with the iFuse Implant System®

The iFuse System is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis. As with all surgical procedures and permanent implants, there are risks and considerations associated with surgery and use of the iFuse Implant. You should discuss these risks and considerations with your physician before deciding if this treatment option is right for you.

The iFuse Implant System is designed to provide fusion for the sacroiliac joint by inserting small titanium implants across the sacroiliac joint.

Potential iFuse benefits

  • Minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approach is less invasive than traditional SI joint surgery
  • Triangular implant profile minimizes rotation and an interference fit minimizes micromotion
  • Designed specifically to stabilize and fuse the heavily loaded SI joint
  • Rigid titanium constructs and large implant surface area provide stability
  • No conflicts with lumbar fusion devices

Possible benefits of an MIS procedure may include:

  • Smaller incision
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Decreased OR time

Possible benefits versus traditional SI joint fusion

  • Smaller incision size
  • No need for bone grafting
  • Less soft tissue stripping
  • Minimal tendon irritation
