The Catamaran® SI Joint Fusion System offers a novel, less invasive Inferior-Posterior approach to the SI joint using a single, robust titanium implant.
The System features the Catamaran® Fixation Device, which passes through both the axial and sagittal planes of the ilium and sacrum, transfixing the SI joint along its longitudinal axis.
A Better Option for SI Joint Fusion
Direct access to the SI joint provides optimal entry point to facilitate arthrodesis
Trajectory is angled away from critical neural and vascular structures
Designed for maximum fixation in the dense cortical bone of the SI joint, inferior to the dorsal recess
A single implant that transfixes the SI joint
The Catamaran SI Joint Fusion System is intended for sacroiliac joint fusion for conditions including sacroiliac joint disruptions and degenerative sacroiliitis
Utilizing a 2D fluoroimaging sequence, the Catamaran Fixation Device is implanted with one pontoon fixated into the ilium and the other into the sacrum, transfixing the SI joint along its longitudinal axis.

Design & Specifications
Joined by a patented transfixing osteotome bridge, the implant consists of two hollow fenestrated pontoons with an open framework designed for packing with autologous bone to facilitate bony in-growth through the SI joint.
The transfixing osteotome is designed to disrupt the articular portion of the joint to help facilitate a fusion response.
Catamaran Biomechanical Characterization and Testing
In mechanical testing, the Catamaran Fixation Device performed favorably as a reliable sacroiliac joint fixation/stabilization system that greatly exceeded the biomechanical thresholds of the sacroiliac joint.
