The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to assess and compare radiographic and clinical outcomes in patients who are to undergo combined interbody/posterolateral lumbar fusion procedures, supplemented with pedicle screw instrumentation, using one of the following interbody cages; the Medtronic Adaptix™ cage with roughened micro and nano-textured titanium surfaces or the CAPSTONE® poly-ether-ether-ketone cage.
Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
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|
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.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The randomized controlled trial will prospectively evaluate the efficacy of Medtronic Adaptix™ titanium implants supplemented with a pedicle screw system as compared to a Medtronic CAPSTONE® PEEK cage currently used in routine fashion for lumbar interbody fusion procedures. This study will capture clinical and radiographic outcomes on patients up to 2 years postoperatively. Both cages will be used in conjunction with a 50:50 mixture of autograft: allograft using milled local autograft bone and GRAFTON™ DBM DBF (no iliac crest autograft will be utilized). This single-centered study will enroll up to 100 subjects, with subjects followed for 24 months post-surgery. All subjects enrolled in the study will be recruited from a pool of subjects eligible for combined interbody/posterolateral lumbar fusion surgery. The inclusion/exclusion criteria are listed below.
Experimental: Medtronic Adaptix™ titanium implants
This arm will use Medtronic Adaptix™ titanium implants supplemented with a pedicle screw system. Both cages will be used in conjunction with a 50:50 mixture of autograft: allograft using milled local autograft bone and GRAFTON™ DBM DBF (no iliac crest autograft will be utilized).
Active Comparator: Medtronic CAPSTONE® PEEK cage
This arm will use Medtronic CAPSTONE® PEEK cage supplemented with a pedicle screw system. Both cages will be used in conjunction with a 50:50 mixture of autograft: allograft using milled local autograft bone and GRAFTON™ DBM DBF (no iliac crest autograft will be utilized).
Device: - Medtronic Adaptix™ titanium implants
Patients who will be having a spinal fusion procedure as part of their standard of care treatment will be randomized to receive either the Medtronic titanium or the PEEK cage supplemented with a pedicle screw system and milled local autograft bone supplemented with GRAFTON DBM DBF. In order to assess fusion, patients will undergo a research-only CT Scan at 6 months post-surgery.
