Sacroiliac Joint Fusion: Improving Surgical Outcomes Through A Posterior Inferior (PiSIF) Approach

A Clinical White Paper Introduction

Over the last few decades, the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is increasingly being recognized as the etiology of pain in up to 30% of patients presenting with chronic low back and posterior pelvic pain.1,2  Pain from the joint often arises as a result of sacroiliac dysfunction caused by a myriad of conditions including osteoarthritis/joint degeneration, trauma to the SIJ, pregnancy, infection, inflammatory arthritis, and tumor.3 Pain arising from the SIJ has been described as very debilitating with patients reporting Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores as high as 50 and poor quality of life.4,5  The seriousness of sacroiliac dysfunction points at the need for efficacious, efficient, and long-lasting therapeutic measures to alleviate its associated symptoms.

 SACROILIAC JOINT IN LOW BACK PAIN

The SIJ is a load-bearing joint that connects the sacrum with the ilium on each side of the lower spine.

The SIJ transmits all the forces of the upper body to the pelvis and legs. While there is not a lot of motion in the joint, over time it can develop signs of wear due to its weight-bearing position.

SI joint problems are a common cause of low back pain which can also include debilitating symptoms including pain in the thigh and/or buttock, and possibly pain that radiates down the sciatic nerve.  SI joint fusion is a technique used to stabilize the sacroiliac joint when non-operative treatments have failed to improve the symptoms.

The  goal of the Catamaran™ SIJ implant procedure is to stabilize/immobilize the SIJ in patients requiring refractory to conservative care.
