Change the Way You Treat Advanced Degenerative Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

Level 1 Evidence coflex® Provides Significant Improvement and Better Outcomes

Outcome measures of patients with moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis who received surgical treatment using the coflex® device demonstrate significant clinical improvement. By adding the coflex® device to your surgical toolbox, you can help more patient's reclaim their lives.

coflex® patient satisfaction*

  • 93% of patients were satisfied with their outcome 2 years after surgery coflex® patients had lasting improvement at 2 and 3 years post-op*

coflex® patients had lasting improvement at 2 and 3 years post-op*

  • 88% of patients had lasting improvement in pain and function at 2 years after surgery (ODI)
  • 90% of patients had lasting improvement in pain and function at 3 years after surgery (ODI)

coflex® patients had clinically significant VAS measurements at 2 years post-op*

  • 88% of patients had a clinically signifificant improvement in back pain relief at 2 years (VAS back)
  • 83% of patients had a clinically significant improvement in leg pain relief at 2 years (VAS leg)

coflex® patients had early symptom improvement/relief at 6 weeks post-op*

  • 90% of patients had early relief of their spinal stenosis symptoms at 6 weeks after surgery (ZCQ)
  • 85% of patients had early improvement in pain and function at 6 weeks after surgery (ODI)
  • 82% of patients had early successful clinical outcome at 6 weeks after surgery (Composite Clinical Success)
  • Fewer patients needed narcotics 6 weeks after surgery, which was sustained through 2 years compared to fusion patients

*This data is based on validated clinical measures from a randomized FDA clinical study comparing the coflex® Interlaminar Technology to pedicle screw fusion surgery for moderate to severe spinal stenosis. Every patient is different; therefore, results may vary. All data is on file at Paradigm Spine, LLC.

In the brief video below, Dr. Hyun Bae speaks with his patient, Ken Josefsberg 5 years after his surgery with the coflex® device for lumbar spinal stenosis. Ken's comments reflect what is important to patients.

Indications for Use
The coflex® Interlaminar Technology is an interlaminar stabilization device indicated for use in one or two level lumbar stenosis from L1-L5 in skeletally mature patients with at least moderate impairment in function, who experience relief in flexion from their symptoms of leg/ buttocks/ groin pain, with or without back pain, and who have undergone at least 6 months of non-operative treatment. The coflex® is intended to be implanted midline between adjacent lamina of 1 or 2 contiguous lumbar motion segments. Interlaminar stabilization is performed after decompression of stenosis at the affected level(s).
