Indications for Use
The BalancedBack Total Joint Replacement is indicated for the biomechanical reconstruction and stabilization of a spinal motion segment in the lumbar spine in skeletally mature patients due to symptomatic lumbar degeneration with or without spinal stenosis.
Lumbar degeneration includes:
- leg pain or neurologic symptoms with or without back pain due to reoccurring herniated nucleus pulposus,
- ligamentum flavum hypertrophy,
- facet degeneration,
- osteophyte formation,
- disc degeneration, and/or
- annular degeneration often causing spinal stenosis (radiculopathy, nerve root compression absent neurologic deficit, radiculitis, or neurogenic claudication).
Prior to receiving the BalancedBack Total Joint Replacement, the diagnosis must be confirmed by radiographic imaging (CT, MRI, Xrays), with no more than a Grade 1 spondylolisthesis at the involved level. Patients must have also exhausted conservative (nonoperative) treatment for at least 3 months (opioid use, physical therapy, invasive cortisone anti-inflammatory medications) or be deemed to have a neurologic emergency or intractable pain.
