iFuse for chronic sacroiliac pain

This is a new guideline from NICE advising that iFUSE can be used for treating chronic sacroiliac pain. The guideline was released in Oct 18. It is worth being aware of as we may have patients affected by this condition.

The iFuse implant system involves placing implants over the sacroiliac joint. This aims to correct any misalignment and weakness that may contribute to pain.

iFuse leads to improved pain relief, better quality of life and less disability when compared to non-surgical management. There is a small cost-saving compared to non-surgical management.

"We have used LocumDeck for a number of months now and find it really useful when booking locums. You can see the availability of GPs, their documents are all loaded on the site and you can book instantly – it takes minutes to do. There are also no expensive locum agency fees to pay – just the GP’s actual payment. It's quick and hassle-free."
