XLIF Decade Plate System Study

Study Purpose

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and performance of the NuVasive XLIF Decade Plate System as measured by patient-reported outcomes (PROs), radiographic outcomes, and reported complications.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Eligible Ages 18 Years and Over
Gender All
More Inclusion & Exclusion Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

1. Patients who are ≥18 years of age at the time of consent. 2. Planned interbody fusion surgery using the Decade Plate System in conjunction with an interbody implant to treat one or two levels in the thoracic and/or lumbar spine for. 1. degenerative disc disease. 2. spondylolisthesis. 3. scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis. 4. spinal stenosis. 5. spondylolysis. 6. pseudoarthrosis or failed previous spine surgery. 3. Able to undergo surgery based on physical exam, medical history, and surgeon judgment. 4. Understands the conditions of enrollment, is willing to follow medical advice including postoperative activity restrictions per the surgeon's standard of care, and is willing to sign an informed consent form to participate in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

1. Use of posterior fixation for the scheduled surgery Note: Should the surgical plan change intraoperatively and posterior fixation is used in the case, the participant will be withdrawn from the study. 2. Patient is involved in active litigation relating to the spine (worker's compensation claim is allowed if it is not contested) 3. Use of bone growth stimulators postoperatively. 4. Active smoking within 6 weeks before surgery. 5. Patient has known sensitivity to materials implanted. 6. Systemic or local infection (latent or active) or signs of local inflammation. 7. Patient has inadequate bone stock or quality, or a physical or medical condition that would prohibit beneficial surgical outcome based on surgeon judgment. 8. Pregnant, or plans to become pregnant during the study. 9. Patient is a prisoner. 10. Patient is participating in another clinical study that would confound study data

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Additional Details

This study is a prospective, single-arm, multicenter study to evaluate the safety and performance of the XLIF Decade Plate in patients undergoing a thoracic and/or lumbar interbody fusion, at one or two levels, with supplemental fixation using a lateral plate. Consecutive patients at a given site who meet all eligibility requirements will be asked to consent to participate in the study. Eligible patients include those with degenerative conditions in the thoracic and/or lumbar spine that are amenable to surgical treatment and will be screened prior to study enrollment. Once enrolled in the study, subjects will undergo XLIF surgery with lateral plating using the Decade Plate. At least 75 subjects will be enrolled and will be followed for 24 months after surgery.
