One-Year Outcomes Data from the OptiMesh SCOUT Published

November 17, 2020

One-Year outcomes data from the OptiMesh SCOUT Spineology® Clinical Outcomes Trial has been published online in SPINE, the journal of the North American Spine Society.

The article, “One Year Outcomes from a Prospective Multicenter Investigation Device Trial of a Novel Conformal Mesh Interbody Fusion Device,” focuses on trial outcomes of patients treated with the OptiMesh Expandable Interbody Fusion System.

The unique OptiMesh device expands in three dimensions, enabling surgeons to perform interbody fusion procedures through an access smaller than any other fusion procedure. Print publication is anticipated before the end of 2020.

SCOUT was a prospective, multicenter investigational device clinical trial. It demonstrated strong outcomes for the OptiMesh implant at one year, including:

  • Significant reduction in back and leg pain1
  • Substantial improvement in functional status that occurred early and was sustained through 12 months1
  • 90 percent “excellent” or “good” patient satisfaction scores1
  • A 98 percent fusion rate1
  • An excellent safety record with no serious, device-related, adverse events1

“We have found this innovative, minimally invasive device to be a safe and effective option for lumbar interbody fusion procedures,” said SCOUT lead investigator John Chi, M.D., M.P.H. Dr. Chi is the Director of Neurosurgical Oncology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, and Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School, and the author of the SPINE article. “The outcomes, including high fusion rates, improved function, reduced pain and high satisfaction rates, are very favorable. Additionally, the minimal exposure requirements yielded an exceptional safety profile.”

“Spineology recently received an FDA De Novo Grant for the interbody placement of OptiMesh and is preparing for a Q1 2021 launch,” said John Booth, Spineology’s CEO. “Publication of the SCOUT data is further testimony to the strength of the study. The results demonstrated by OptiMesh along with the experiences of our investigators will help take surgery for low back and leg pain to the next level by providing excellent patient outcomes, enhanced recovery and exceptional efficiency.”

In addition to the SPINE publication, the International Journal of Spine Surgery (IJSS) accepted three manuscripts discussing Spineology’s proprietary mesh technology:
