Treatment of Vertebral Compression Fractures

Vertebral Augmentation

StabiliT® MX

  • Preferential pathways created by PowerCURVE® are designed to maximize cement interdigitation (optimized fill) while minimizing destruction of intact cancellous bone*
  • High bone cement viscosity that is maintained throughout procedure with 35 minutes working time*
  • Intuitive injection system provides controlled cement delivery for up to 2 feet away from the image intensifier

StabiliT® System

  • Targeted approach and ultra-high viscosity cement to treat pathological fractures and minimize extravasation in the vertebrae
  • PowerCURVE Osteotome minimizes the destruction of intact cancellous bone and maximizes interdigitation for optimally filled and mechanically sound vertebrae1
  • The StabiliT system allows users to stand up to 20 feet away from x-ray sources and reduce radiation exposure

Osseoflex® SB Steerable and Straight Balloons

  • The Osseoflex SB family of inflatable bone tamps for vertebral augmentation includes both steerable and straight balloons.
  • The Osseoflex SB steerable balloon enables access to the entire vertebral body with unprecedented and true steerability, navigation, and precision

Osseoflex SB Straight and Steerable

Osseoflex® SN Steerable Needle

  • Osseoflex® SN/SN+ steerable, articulating needles enable direct access to the entire vertebral body via a unipedicular approach for percutaneous vertebral augmentation
  • Cavity creation is achieved through the disruption of bone by steering and articulating the Osseoflex SN or SN+ to create a single channel or multiple channels and inject cement

Vertebroplasty

StabiliT® VP

  • Simple cement preparation:  no blending, shaking, squeezing, or stirring
  • Mixing cartridge used for delivery; no need to transfer cement
  • Up to 2X viscosity of standard PMMA cements and extended working time >30 minutes for procedural flexibility*
  • Precise cement delivery and stoppage for predictable results

Treatment of Metastatic Spinal Tumors

Targeted radiofrequency ablation (t-RFA) expands the range of treatment options for patients with painful metastatic spinal tumors as it is compatible with systemic therapies.

The STAR™ Tumor Ablation System

  • Rapid pain relief + localized tumor destruction
  • Often perfromed in an out patient setting
