SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SI-BONE, Inc. (SIBN), (Nasdaq: SIBN), a Silicon Valley-based medical device company dedicated to solving musculoskeletal disorders of the Sacropelvic Anatomy, today announced FDA clearance for iFuse-TORQ® for pelvic fracture fixation, including acute, non-acute and non-traumatic fractures.

Sacral fragility and insufficiency fractures are common and often devastating to patients and healthcare systems, where:
- 120,000 fragility or sacral insufficiency fractures occur each year in the United States1
- 78% of patients are treated with bed rest resulting in hospital stays of 14 to 45 days2–6
- 27% mortality at 1 year results from complications associated with bed rest5.6
“Many elderly patients with sacral fragility fractures require long periods of immobility while their fracture heals, which often results in complications associated with bed rest,” said Michael Gardner, MD, chief of orthopedic trauma. at Stanford University Hospital. “A paradigm shift is needed. The strength and osseointegration characteristics of iFuse-TORQ make it the most attractive implant on the market to remobilize these osteoporotic patients.
“Since its launch in 2021, iFuse-TORQ has been used to treat many patients with pelvic fracture or sacroiliac joint dysfunction,” said Laura Francis, CEO of SI-BONE. “This extension of the pelvic fracture fixation indication follows the launch of iFuse Bedrock Granite and reinforces SI-BONE’s position as a market leader in the sacropelvic space.”
