Clinical Trials


Actifuse ABX and local bone have comparable outcomes to only local bone in instrumented multi-level adult spinal deformity patients
The purpose of this study is to compare people who had a standard of care spinal fusion using part of their local bone graft [a small amount of bone from the region of the spine where the fusion is occurring] and Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBX) [a market approved bone graft extender which is similar to a bone graft substitute] to correct an adult spinal deformity and people who will have a standard of care spinal fusion using a mixture of Actifuse ABX® [a market approved bone graft substitute] and a local bone graft [a small amount of bone from the region of the spine where the fusion is occurring] (you). This study will compare the outcomes of both groups to help the orthopaedic surgeon conducting spinal fusions in the future.
