Disc-FX Minimally Invasive Discectomy
"LESS IS MORE"! An Innovative Treatment for Discogenic Pathologies!
Disc-FX® System safely, rapidly and effectively performs minimally invasive discectomy procedures for contained lumbar spine herniations.
Less invasive incision compared to traditional discectomy procedures.
Minimum annulotomy reduces risk of reherniation.
Multi-therapeutic options; nucleus decompression, nucleus ablation and annulus modulation.
Multiple Treatment Options in System.
1. Naucleus Decompression /Discectomy.
Grasping forceps are used to manually remove bulging nucleus material.
Nucleus material can be collected and sampled for pathology. Doctors generally remove 1-2 grams of nucleus pulposus
2. Nucleus Ablation
Nucleus Ablation can be performed by the Trigger-Flex® device to further break down the nucleus, allowing free fragments to be removed manually via the grasping forceps.
3. Annulus Modulation
Due to the steerability of the Trigger-Flex® device, the annular wall which contains pain receptors can be treated and annular fissures can be sealed.
