Spine Surgery Clinical Trials

Confirmatory Clinical Study to Support the Effectiveness and Safety of Oxiplex for the Reduction of Pain and Symptoms Following Lumbar Surgery

Aims: The objective of this prospective, double-blinded, randomized controlled study is to assess the safety and effectiveness of Oxiplex in adult patients for the reduction of pain and symptoms following a single level partial discectomy at L4-L5 or L5-S1 with or without laminotomy for leg pain. Oxiplex is a clear, viscoelastic gel that is applied to the operative site during lumbar spine surgery in order to coat the nerve root with a protective barrier.
