Vertebral compression fracture (VCF) refers to a break in any of the bones (vertebrae) of the spinal column. It usually occurs when the front of the vertebral body collapses, and may be caused by:
OSTEOPOROSIS: painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures without posterior wall involvement
TRAUMA: painful vertebral compression fractures
CANCER: treatment of osteolytic lesions located within the vertebral body with intact cortical shell
If conservative treatment is not enought, cement augmentation procedure could be an effective treatment, reducing the risk of subsequent fractures.
Vertebroplasty is a very well established technique for treating back pain caused by severe osteoporosis or tumors with consequent loss of height or fracture of the vertebral body.
VERTEBROSTEEL is intended to be used in Vertebroplasty procedures to inject cement into the vertebral body.
Coaxial biopsy can also be performed using our Vertebral Biopsy device.
