Treating Vertebral Compression Fractures with Multiple Therapeutic Options

Think VCF Solutions - Treat VCF with Multiple Therapeutic Options - Merit Medical

Merit Medical provides physicians with a wide range of vertebroplasty and vertebral augmentation tools, offering patients various pathways to treatment.

Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) can have debilitating effects on a patient’s quality of life. Our goal at Merit Medical is to provide physicians with a broad range of tools to treat VCFs through minimally invasive vertebroplasty and vertebral augmentation (kyphoplasty) procedures. Through our full family of VCF solutions, physicians can target fractures by finding the right therapeutic approach that meets the needs of each patient.

Our extensive VCF portfolio offers options that include balloon and non-balloon products, devices that provide a unipedicular or bipedicular approach, straight and steerable cavity creation tools, high-viscosity cement, and the products to deliver it with control and precision.

StabiliT® Vertebral Augmentation System

Treat pathological fractures and minimize extravasation in the vertebrae with a targeted approach that uses RF energy-treated, high-viscosity cement with a 35-minute extended working time and remotely controlled delivery.

StabiliT MX Vertebral Augmentation System

Take advantage of the same high-viscosity bone cement with a 35-minute extended working time but without the need for capital equipment. The StabiliT MX allows you to deliver cement using a precision syringe that allows for immediate cement flow stoppage.
