The purpose

Spine fusion is one of the most common procedures performed in spinal surgery. Several surgical techniques can achieve a solid union, but the intertransverse posterolateral fusion (PLF) is the most widely used. However, complications can develop when the bone graft material used is insufficient to achieve the desired fusion. With its unique properties, nanOss Bioactive can be mixed with bone marrow aspirate (BMA) and other graft materials to obtain new bone growth during the healing process. It is hypothesized that the use of nanOss Bioactive will result in fusion at 12 months, with CT evidence of bridging trabecular bone, less than 3mm of translational motion, and less than 5 degrees of angular motion. In addition, patients are expected to see an improvement in Oswestry Disability Index scores, VAS pain scores, and SF36 scores, while decreasing the use of pain medication, returning to work, and finding satisfaction in the results of their surgery.
