ABOUT BARRICAID®

SHARE THIS PAGE:

Barricaid is designed to close large defects in the anulus, so to prevent recurrent disc herniation, while allowing the surgeon to preserve more of the patient’s disc.

The Barricaid Anular Closure device consists of a woven polyester occlusion component intended to block an anular defect, while anchored to the adjacent vertebral body by a titanium bone anchor.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE OVERVIEW
