The Brussels International Spine Symposium (BISS) is globally recognized as one of the world leading, state-of-art annual meetings in Spine. The 25th anniversary meeting took place on 16-17 November 2018 reviewing the topic of Disc Herniation - Back to Basics: Controversies in diagnosis, management and costs.
The two-year results from a Level 1, randomized superiority study were published in The Spine Journal. Results from this landmark clinical study, that includes 554 patients from 6 countries, demonstrate superior outcomes when treating patients with large anular defects with Barricaid Anular Closure compared to discectomy alone.
