Sacroiliac Joint Fusion with TransFasten – Patient Experience


Captiva Spine’s TransFasten Posterior SI Fusion System is designed to provide an easy, fast, and safe method of fusing the Sacroiliac Joint.  A posterior approach coupled with the proprietary QuadraCentric™ Joint Preparation and unique structural allograft implant promote a true biologic fusion.

Elsie is a real TransFasten Patient. Elsie was so happy with the results of the surgery that she approached us and volunteered to create this video. The patient was not compensated.

  • Posterior Approach – Potentially reduces operative time and Neurovascular complications.
  • Posterior SI Fusion Site Preparation – Allows for efficient preparation of the joint and press fit implant placement.
  • A form of “Mortise and Tenon” Stabilization of the SI Joint (a proven and established method of Architectural Stabilization) – The geometry of the TransFasten implant across the joint is designed to stabilize the motion segment without disrupting the anatomy and creating new pain generators.
  • Structural Allograft Implant – Custom allograft implant includes a large trans-joint graft window for accommodating a biologic fusion.

Training Opportunities Available. For more information, contact Captiva Spine direct at 561-277-9480.

Captiva Spine Announces Alpha Launch of the TransFasten Posterior SI Fusion System

Captiva Spine is a medical device organization located in Jupiter, Florida, dedicated to creating sincere and collaborative relationships to deliver smart, elegant, and intuitive spine fusion solutions. Today, Captiva Spine is announcing the alpha launch of the TransFasten Posterior SI Fusion System.  The TransFasten Posterior SI Fusion System was developed in conjunction with Robert Lins, M.D., Orthopedic Spine Surgeon at The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery of the Palm Beaches.

“My goal was to develop a safe and efficient posterior approach potentially reducing operative time, neurovascular complications, and achieving a quadracentric press fit that neither compresses nor expands the sacroiliac joint,” Dr. Lins explained.  “We are creating a fusion site similar to a mortise and tenon joint used in woodworking for thousands of years.” Dr. Lins continued to explain “TransFasten’s streamlined instrumentation and straightforward procedure provide for efficient joint preparation and precise press fit of a QuadraCentric Implant.”


To explain the QuadraCentric Joint Preparation simply…
A) Dock the QuadraCentric Drill Guide at the SI joint.
B) Ream the implant site.
C) Impact the QuadraCentric Implant and graft material.


“The launch of TransFasten (a posterior SI fusion system) is a key milestone in our drive to deliver clinical and economic value for patients, surgeons, and healthcare facilities,” said Dale Mitchell, President and Founder of Captiva Spine.
