Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 12 Months
Official Title: A Clinical Registry to Collect Patient Outcome Data for the BIOMET® EBI Bone Healing System, BIOMET® OrthoPak® Non-invasive Bone Growth Stimulator System, and the BIOMET® SpinalPak® Non-Invasive Spine Fusion Stimulator System

Further study details as provided by Zimmer Biomet:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Radiographic Assessment of Healing [ Time Frame: The time frame for healing determination was not pre-specified. Patients were evaluated at regular doctors' visits for up to 12 months. The physician determined the time point at which healing occurred for each patient at their regular visits. ]
    Bone healing was assessed on x-rays and/or CT scan.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quality of Life Assessment [ Time Frame: The quality of life assessment was to be completed at the regular doctor's visit at which the physician determined the patient to be healed. No quality of life data was collected. ]
    Quality of life was intended to be measured by 5 scoring systems that ask a range of questions about the patient's pain and function. No quality of life data was captured for any of the patients and as such no quality of life analysis was performed.


Enrollment: 8
Study Start Date: October 2012
Study Completion Date: October 2013
Primary Completion Date: October 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Stimulation Group
All patients will receive either the Biomet® EBI Bone Healing System, Biomet OrthoPak® Non-invasive Bone Growth Stimulator System or Biomet SpinalPak® Non-Invasive Spine Fusion Stimulator Systems.
Device: Biomet® EBI Bone Healing System
A pulsed electromagnetic fields electrical stimulation device used for the treatment of fracture nonunions. Designed to be used for 3-10 hours per day with a recommended use of 10 hours per day.
Device: Biomet Orthopak® Non-Invasive Bone Growth Stimulator System
A capacitive coupling electrical stimulation device used for the treatment of fracture nonunions. Designed to be used for 24 hours per day.
Device: Biomet SpinalPak® Non-Invasive Spine Fusion Stimulator
A capacitive coupling electrical stimulation device used as an adjunctive treatment to lumbar spinal fusion. Designed to be used for 24 hours per day.

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this clinical registry is to capture current, real-world, bone specific healing data from the medical records of patients being treated with a Biomet® EBI Bone Healing System (BHS), the Biomet® OrthoPak® Non-Invasive Bone Growth Stimulator System, or the Biomet® SpinalPak® Non-Invasive Spine Fusion Stimulator System. This study will provide current data on the effectiveness of these electrical stimulation devices.
