The article discusses research being done on reports on the use of indirect compression devices in patients with lumbar spinal claudication. It references a study Björn Strömqvist et al, presented at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the North American Spine Society in October 2007 in Austin, Texas. The study has found out a correlation between indirect compression devices and secondary surgery rate for spinal stenosis. Also reported are the reoperation cases in groups who underwent indirect decompression using the X-Stop IPD implant.
