  • MILD® Percutaneous Image-Guided Lumbar Decompression: A Medicare Claims Study

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This prospective longitudinal study will compare incidence rates of Medicare beneficiary surgical and minimally invasive intervention post index procedure, as well as harms associated with the MILD procedure, at 24 months post-treatment with MILD, tested against a control group of similar patients that have had a comparable procedure.

  • SLIP II Registry: Spinal Laminectomy Versus Instrumented Pedicle Screw Fusion

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The purpose of this registry is two fold. First, to determine the comparative effectiveness of decompression alone versus decompression with fusion for patients with degenerative grade I spondylolisthesis and symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis. Primary analysis will focus on the patients' improvement from baseline patient-reported outcome questionnaires. The registry will also determine if an expert panel review of individual patient cases (degenerative grade I spondylolisthesis/stenosis) is associated with improved outcome and patient satisfaction. This study aims to prospectively collect comparative data for these patients treated with either decompression alone or decompression with fusion.
