Abstract

 What is the Role of InterspinousFusion Devices (IFD) in the Lumbar Spine Instability?

Approximately 99% of people have experienced an episode of disabling low back pain or “back pain” at least once in a lifetime. About 14% of new outpatient visits are related to episodes of low back pain or sciatica and, of these, at least 4% undergo surgery. For this reasons the question is spontaneous: Why is back pain a phenomenon of such great deal? The explanation lies in the quality of life of every individual: normal daily activities (work, sports, habits, posture, etc.) that lead to an acceleration of the physiological age-related changes of the spine.
