The purpose of this clinical study is to evaluate fusion of the facet joints in a prospective cohort of patients utilizing the VerteLoc facet fixation device in patients receiving lumbar laminectomy (L1-S1), without ancillary stabilization devices such as pedicle and transfacet screws.
||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Prospective, Single Arm Clinical Trial Evaluating Clinical Outcome and Fusion Results Using the VerteLoc® Facet Fixation Device
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Fusion grade at 12 month follow-up using CT scans [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Fusion grade at 12 month follow-up using CT scans with a grading system based on:
- Complete fusion;
- Partial fusion;
- No fusion;
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Subject success / Clinical outcome [ Time Frame: 2-3 weeks, 3 months and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Subject success / Clinical outcome:
Evaluate the reduction in baseline VAS back pain score.

All patients will receive treatment
|Ages Eligible for Study:
||18 Years and older
|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
- Have provided consent for research by signing the Institutional Review Board approved Informed Consent;
- Have given appropriate operative consent for a decompressive lumbar (L1-S1) laminectomy procedure as standard of care;
- Are skeletally mature, and are at least 18 years of age;
- If female, are not pregnant;
- Agree to adhere to post-surgical medically prescribed activity limitations and/or physical rehabilitation.
- Previous surgery at the target or adjacent vertebral levels;
- More than two intervertebral levels to be treated by the laminectomy procedure;
- Found to be inappropriate candidates for facet fixation using the VerteLoc system;
- Require additional and/or other surgical technique and/or approach to the laminectomy at the index level(s), which may in the opinion of the Primary Investigator confound measurement of outcome variables;
- Has a medical disorder or is receiving medications that would be expected to interfere with osteogeneses,
- Active malignancy or patient with a history of any malignancy (except non-melanoma skin cancer) with recurrence within 5 years of surgery;
- Active local or systemic infection or history of local or systemic infection, immune-deficiency, uncontrolled medical conditions, which in the opinion of the Investigator may increase patient risk or confound fusion results;
- BMI >40% ;
- History of tobacco smoking within the past 6 months;
- Has a history of alcoholism, medication or drug abuse, psychosis, is a prisoner, and/or has a personality disorder, poor motivation, emotional or intellectual issues that would likely make the patient unreliable for participation in the study;
- Are participating in any other clinical trial.
