Dr. Raikar says, “The Inspan Interspinous Distraction Decompression (IDD) device provides a permanent solution by stabilizing the affected segment of the spine to relieve pain and relieve neural compression through the distraction of spinal and blade processes. spinal stenosis. “

INSPAN LLC (a private company) is pleased to announce the positive results of a clinical study of Ambulatory Interspinous Lumbar Fixation for Degenerative Intervertebral Disc Disorders with Spinal Stenosis using the Inspan Interspinous Fixation Device (INSPAN LLC ). Unlike extension block designs, the Inspan device fixes the spine to provide immediate stability, distraction, decompression and fusion.

The study was performed at the R Choice Surgical Center, an outpatient outpatient surgery center in Fremont, Nebraska, United States. The contributing authors of this study are Dr Shane V. Raikar, MD, Dr Arun A. Patil, MD, Dr Deepak K. Pandey, Ph.D., and M. Sidharta R. Kumar.

This retrospective study reports the clinical outcome of pain reduction after implantation of the Inspan interspinous distraction decompression (IDD) device. The study was conducted in 13 patients with a median age of 68 years, all with chronic pain, and a median follow-up time of 19 months. The procedures were performed on patients diagnosed with degenerative intervertebral disc disorders and underlying spinal stenosis. There were no complications, no revisions or no implant failures. Additionally, postoperative pain as measured by the Digital Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) showed a statistically significant reduction in back and leg pain.

Lead author of the study, Dr Raikar, says, “I have been managing my patients’ spinal pain for 23 years by providing pain management solutions such as kyphoplasty, trial and implant. spinal cord stimulation, morphine pump test and implant, radiofrequency nerve ablation. , and other methods that provide long-lasting pain relief. However, the Inspan Interspinous Distraction Decompression (IDD) device provides a permanent solution by stabilizing the affected segment of the spine for pain relief and relieving neural compression through the distraction of the spinal and lamina processes. spinal stenosis. The instrumentation is easy to use under fluoroscopy. The implant design allows for safe implantation to prevent fracture and collapse of the spinous process.

According to Dr. Pandey, President and COO of Inspan LLC, “Inspan has a long clinical experience since 2010, and we have continuously incorporated feedback from our physicians to improve device, instruments and technique. We will continue our commitment to innovation and to listening to our doctors. “

“It is very satisfying for me to train pain management physicians to use Inspan safely and effectively and to be readily available to support,” says Professor Kingsley R. Chin, orthopedic surgeon at Certified Spine and Technical Director of Inspan LLC.


INSPAN, LLC is privately owned by the KICVentures Group and is focused on advancing the patented interspinous fixation technology platform. The Inspan device has been proven for ten years with thousands of implants since FDA clearance in 2010.
