The publication is titled “Acute Implantation of a Bioresorbable Polymer Scaffold in Patients with Complete Thoracic Spinal Cord Injury: 24-Month Follow-up from the INSPIRE Study.”
Richard Toselli, M.D., InVivo’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said, “In addition to the previous six-month publication covering INSPIRE 1.0 data in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine, we are pleased to see the evaluation of patient outcomes through the 24-month follow up visit.
