VIA Disc NP
The VIA Disc NP procedure is a non-surgical intervention intended to supplement degenerated intervertebral discs. Transplanted tissue may support mechanical loading efficiency of the disc. VIA Disc NP is an off-the-shelf processed human nucleus pulposus tissue allograft intended to supplement degenerated intervertebral discs. NP particulate is derived from intervertebral discs of donor tissue, with the particulate size optimized for delivery into the disc.
Who should consider Via Disc NP?
Age-related wear and tear of the intervertebral discs can cause loss of hydration and degeneration. One of the most common causes of chronic low back pain is the degeneration of the disc. Not all degenerated discs cause pain, but painful disc degeneration most commonly occurs in the low back (or lumbar spine). The low lumbar spine carries a significant weight-bearing function and supports substantial rotational and translational movement, making the area susceptible to injury.
What is the procedure like?
The Via Disc NP procedure is a non-surgical intervention. Saline is mixed into the NP tissue for optimal hydration prior to delivery. Via Disc NP is then delivered into the degenerated intervertebral disc through a 22G spine needle using fluoroscopic guidance.
