Although the moniker MIS may suggest a less intense procedure, all knee replacement procedures involve the negotiation through or around muscles and tendons, the cutting of bone from the knee and the attachment of a replacement implant to the bone. MIS does involve a much smaller incision than in conventional knee replacement. The CoFix ™ implant is intended for use on all levels of the lumbar spine (L1, S1) for back pain and intervertebral disc-related pain due to degenerative processes of the lumbar spine with the occurrence of instability, such as pseudospondylolisthesis (up to Meyerding grade 1), osteochondrosis, instability of the facet joints and lumbar Spinal canal stenosis or lumbar disc herniations.
