Aurora Spine has announced the launch of its proprietary SiLO posterior SI joint fusion system (SiLO), which was designed specifically for posterior sacroiliac joint fusion, according to a company press release.
Aurora Spine claims the SiLO posterior SI joint fusion system is a single graft posterior SI-fusion system, made of human cortical bone and was developed to provide a simple, safe, and reproducible method of stabilising and fusing the sacroiliac joint.
According to the company, the SiLO graft was designed specifically for posterior sacroiliac joint fusions and consists of three levels of ridges along its circumferential solid body to increase implant retention and stability through its unique “Dowel Anchorage Design.” The SiLO graft is shaped for enhanced 360-degree bone incorporation and includes vertical side-channels that allow for additional bone graft material during insertion for enhanced stability. The SiLO graft is implanted with custom designed, patent pending instrumentation.
Trent Northcutt, president and chief executive officer of Aurora Spine, commented, “We are pleased with the recent commercial launch of Aurora’s proprietary SiLO Posterior SI Joint Fusion System, which we expect to be a key growth driver for Aurora into a market that has gained acceptance among key surgeons and pain interventionalists alike. Also, conducting SI Joint Fusion posteriorly is a procedure that is expected to grow immensely in the coming years, as it can be done through minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and has quicker recovery times for patients.”
