OBJECT Interspinous devices are widely used for the treatment of lumbar stenosis. The DIAM spinal stabilization system (Medtronic, Ltd.) is an interspinous implant made of silicone and secured in place with 2 laces. The device can be implanted via posterior access with the sacrifice of the supraspinous ligament (SSL) or via lateral access with preservation of the ligament. The aim of the present work was to evaluate the role of the laces, the SSL, and the device size and positioning to… CONTINUE READING
