Medical device manufacturers are obliged to perform post market surveillance after launching their products in the market. Especially in case of new technologies in the absence of a gold standard the registration of surgical cases is helpful to understand the healing process and pros and cons of various new devices and technologies.
But moreover surgeons and patients can participate and will be able to observe the benchmark of clinical outcome after SIJ fusion.
In cooperation with ESD in Innsbruck SIMEG is working on building up an international case registry for SIJ fusion cases. It is already installed for trial users and will be introduced during our annual meeting in Hamburg, ICSJS 2020, May 2020.
