  17. 17. STUDIES Radiographic and Clinical Outcome Assessment of “Single Curves” in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis: A Pilot Study Prelude to a Prospective Investigation. Summary: The main purpose of this pilot study is to develop and define the necessary radiographic (process) and clinical (patient) outcome measures to evaluate patients with single curve, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) being treated with current surgical techniques. Colorado Spine Symphony Study. Summary: The Symphony Platelet Concentrate System is designed to be used for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood immediately prior to surgery. The PRP can be mixed with autograft and allograft bone grafting materials prior to implantation to assist in the rate and reliability of achieving a fusion. A Randomized Multi-Center Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of the Cervical I/F Cage for Anterior Cervical Fusion. Summary: The purpose of this randomized multi-center clinical trial is to determine the safety and effectiveness of the Cervical I/F Cage for interbody fusion in treatment of degenerative disc disease in one or two adjacent levels in the cervical spine.
