Brief Summary:
Single arm pilot study to evaluate the safety and initial feasibility of the Neurolyser XR, a high intensity focused ultrasound device, for non-invasive treatment of axial chronic low back pain

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Facet Syndrome of Lumbar Spine Device: Neurolyser XR Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Study design: Prospective, single arm

Timeline: six month enrollment period and 12 months follow-up period.

Sites: The study will be conducted at five sites in Canada: McGill University, Toronto Western, Silver Medical Group, Precision Sport & Spine, Kinetix Integrated Orthopaedic & Regenerative Medicine

Study population: Thirty adult patients diagnosed with facet related low back pain.

Primary study objective: Safety and efficacy of the Neurolyser XR for the treatment of chronic low back pain secondary to zygapophyseal joint syndrome.

Safety is measured by the incidence and severity of treatment related adverse events.

Efficacy is measured by the changes in pain severity at the treatment area, using a numerical rating scale (NRS), of 0 to 10 between baseline and 6 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. NRS [ Time Frame: Time Frame: Base line, 2 days 1, 2 & 4 weeks, 3, 6 & 12 months after procedure ]
    Change in average pain score as measured by a numeric rating scale from 0 (no pain) to 10, worst possible pain

  2. Procedure and Device Safety at six months as measured by measured by the incidence and severity of treatment related adverse events [ Time Frame: Time Frame: 6 months after procedure ]
    Safety will be measured by the incidence and severity of treatment related adverse events


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Lesion Size [ Time Frame: 2 days post procedure ]
    Lesion size and location as shown in MRI Image, 2 days post treatment.

  2. Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) [ Time Frame: Time Frame: Base line, 1, & 4 weeks, 3, 6 & 12 months after procedure ]
    Low Back Pain Questionnaire (Range: 0% to 100%)

  3. Short Form 12 (SF-12) [ Time Frame: Time Frame: Base line, 1, & 4 weeks, 3, 6 & 12 months after procedure ]
    A multipurpose short form survey with 12 questions (Range: 0 to 100)

  4. Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) [ Time Frame: Time Frame: Base line, 1, & 4 weeks, 3, 6 & 12 months after procedure ]
    Patient Global Impression of Change (Range: 1 to 7)

  5. Procedure and Device Safety as measured by measured by the incidence and severity of treatment related adverse events [ Time Frame: Time Frame: Base line, Procedure day, 2 days 1, 2 & 4 weeks, 3, 6 & 12 months after procedure ]
    Safety will be measured by the incidence and severity of treatment related adverse events
