dynamic stabilization

An integrated function of neuromuscular systems requiring muscles to contract and fixate the body against fluctuating outside forces, providing postural support with fine adjustments in muscle tension. The term usually pertains to a function of the trunk, shoulder, and hip muscles and includes the lower extremity muscles when they are functioning in a closed chain.

Although the Dynesys system was designed to preserve motion of stabilized segments and prevent degeneration at the adjacent segments by decreasing stress and preventing hypermobility, it is still controversial whether or not dynamic stabilization can prevent the occurrence of ASD.
In dynamic stabilization systems, several studies documented a higher loosening rate, but no association with pain symptoms or infections was found.

Some of the other growth restraining factors of the China spinal infusion market can be growing awareness for some other treatment methods such as IDET, artificial disc, posterior dynamic stabilization, disc regeneration.
Nonfusion devices, also known as dynamic stabilization or motion preservation devices, aim to maintain or only moderately reduce the mobility of a motion segment and thereby decrease or eliminate adjacent level degeneration.
Together, the combined entity will leverage a variety of technology, including modem fusion, dynamic stabilization, artificial disc replacement, biologics, vertebral augmentation, interspinous process decompression, disc disease diagnosis, navigation and minimally invasive techniques to serve patients with a broader variety of spinal disorders.
[12] classified posterior dynamic stabilization devices into three categories: (1) hybrid stabilization device with pedicle screw/rod construct such as DTO[R] and Dynesys (we defined it as HSD in this manuscript); (2) interspinous process devices (IPD) such as Wallis, XSTOP, DIAM, and Coflex; (3) total facet replacement system.
Spinal non-fusion products, such as dynamic stabilization devices (motion preservation devices) have become the treatment of choice especially for young patients, in comparison to the other two segments of the spinal non-fusion segment, namely, interspinous process decompression (IPD) devices and total disc replacement devices.
Recently, the company received the CE mark for its Flex+2 dynamic stabilization rod for spine and 510(k) clearance from the U.S.
