The new effective method for spinal stabilization
Percutaneous Vertebroplastic is an effective new interventional radiological method for bone pain relief and spinal stabilization which avoids complicate and expensive traditional reconstructive surgery whenever unnecessary.
Bone is punctured under radiological and/or computer tomographical control using a special application kit. Treatment is performed under local anaesthesia, often combined with neuroleptanalgesia. After placing the needle in the area of pathological fracture or bone tumor, a low-viscosity bone cement is injected through the needle under permanent x-ray control.
The cement hardens in shortly giving the bone cement new stability.
VERTOPLAST® Bone Cement Delivery System now offers leading technology to physicians with the first-ever reusable driver.
VERTOPLAST® allows precise delivery of bone cement under active fl uoro while keeping hands well outside of the fluoro field.
Allows longer working time, especially with thicker cements
Extremely cost-effective, easy to control handle for uncomplicated two-handed operation, consistent and controlled pressure during procedure
More precision: ¼ turn delivers 0.0625 ml (one turn = 0.25 ml)
Finger-tip control with less fatigue
Special Winged Needle
Easy insertion/removal & rotation in the vertebral body
Special Needle bevel-edge
Easy steering of the needle/cement
Keeps hands well outside the fluoro field
Can hold up to 10 ml of cement
Painful compression fracture in osteoporosis Painful tumors of the vertebral body
