Broomfield, CO, January 25, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- MedAware Systems, Inc. announced today that a major research paper entitled Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Methodology - iFuse Implant System® Compared to Screw-type Surgeries: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis has been published in the journal Pain Physician.
Pain Physician is the official publication of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP). It is a peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary, open access journal written by and directed to an audience of interventional pain physicians, clinicians and basic scientists with an interest in interventional pain management and pain medicine.
As part of the study, over 500 research articles were collected and reviewed by the MedAware Systems team. Data from the articles were extracted and analyzed using MedAware Systems’ patent pending process in only three weeks. The results of the meta-analysis conclusively demonstrated that the iFuse Implant System, developed by SI-BONE, Inc., is far superior in fusing the sacroiliac joint across three key patient outcome measures: Pain, Disability, and Quality of Life/Patient Satisfaction.
“Approximately 15% to 30% of chronic lower back pain can be attributed to the SI joint. Recent improvements in the diagnosis of SI joint dysfunction have guided the emergence of new surgical devices and techniques. Our analysis of a large body of the medical research literature on the topic demonstrates that the iFuse Implant System results in better patient outcomes for the treatment of SI joint dysfunction due to degenerative sacroiliitis or SI joint disruption,” says Founder and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Zung Vu Tran. He continues, “Interestingly, the benefits were even more pronounced in women. MedAware Systems' remarkable ability to aggregate and analyze massive quantities of medical research data in a matter of weeks can result in accelerating the adoption of new medicines and medical devices, allowing more patients to benefit from these new approaches sooner.”
