We’re excited to announce our first level 1 clinical study for Revita full thickness placental allograft!
This clinical trial will assess the safety and efficacy of Revita placement following lumbar microdiscectomy procedures. Common complications following microdiscectomy procedures include scar tissue formation and reherniation, which are known to cause back and leg pain. Patients with extensive scar tissue are 3.2 times more likely to experience recurrent radicular pain than those with less extensive scarring1.
The use of a barrier membrane, such as Revita, is expected to reduce the rate of occurrence for these types of complications and improve functional outcomes following surgery. The first patient has been enrolled in a 182-patient multi-center randomized controlled single-blinded (patient) trial evaluating the use of Revita as a barrier membrane to reduce these types of complications and improve functional outcomes. More information on this study can be found in the press release.
We are thrilled to have this trial underway, and we are continuing to invest in robust clinical validation of both Revita and Ascent through several case series and large randomized controlled trials.
