Understanding the problem

Sacroiliac (SI) joint disease has various different terms including SI joint dysfunction, SI joint syndrome, SI inflammation. Each of these however refer pain in the SI joints. There are two of SI joints in the lower back, on either side of the spine. SI joints have a cartilage layer covering the bone, allowing movement and acting as a shock absorber between the bones. When this cartilage is damaged or worn away, the bones rub against each other, and osteoarthritis occurs. This is the most common cause of SI joint dysfunction. People who gain weight, whose legs are of unequal lengths or who have curvature of the spine are especially prone to developing SI joint dysfunction.

Signs and Symptoms

Radiating pain along the sciatic nerve and down the leg Dull or sharp pain starting at your sacroiliac joint, but it can move to your buttocks, thighs, groin, or upper back

Sometimes standing up can trigger pain

Pain may most of the time only be present on one side of the lower back

More pain or discomfort in the morning and may get better during the day

Accurately diagnosing sacroiliac joint dysfunction can sometimes be difficult because the symptoms maybe similar with other common conditions, like facet joint syndrome, disc herniation and radiculopathy.

Technologies used

iFuse Implant System

Sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion is a surgical procedure performed with either general or spinal anesthesia. The iFuse Implant System, a minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedure, requires a small incision (about one to two inches long), along the side of the buttock.

Your surgeon will use a specially designed system to guide the instruments that prepare the bone and facilitate placement of the titanium implants across the SI joint. Fluoroscopy, an imaging technique commonly used by physicians, provides your surgeon real-time moving images of internal structures during the procedure. Typically, three iFuse Implants are used in an iFuse procedure. Both the surgical technique and the iFuse Implant System are designed to protect the tissues surrounding the surgical site.

The whole MIS SI joint procedure takes about an hour, and recovery time is significantly less than open surgery.

Benefits of iFuse

  • Smaller incisions
  • Reduced blood loss
  • No need for bone grafting
  • Less soft tissue stripping
  • Minimal tendon irritation
  • Less time in the operating room
