mild® Procedure Abstracts From the ASPN 2021 Annual Conference

Published July 22, 2021

What was the biggest news at the ASPN 2021 Conference? New mild® data! Five poster presentations highlight the reasons more practices are moving to mild® as a first-line therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).

Must-see mild® outcomes include:

  1. Dr. Timothy Deer with Level 1 evidence on the superiority of mild® and conventional medical management (CMM) versus CMM-alone.

  1. Dr. Peter Pryzbylkowski on performing mild® immediately upon diagnosis of central LSS with neurogenic claudication, or after the first ESI fails.

Looking to explore procedural techniques? The mild® Streamlined Technique gains backing from:

  1. Dr. Dawood Sayed and his co-authors’ multi-center findings on efficacy.
