Kyphon V Premium Vertebroplasty

Overview

Kyphon V Premium Vertebroplasty is designed to stabilize vertebral compression fractures (VCFs).

INDICATIONS

The Kyphon platform is used to treat pathological fractures of the vertebral body due to osteoporosis, cancer, or benign lesions. Cancer includes multiple myeloma and metastatic lesions, including those arising from breast or lung cancer, or lymphoma. Benign lesions include hemangioma and giant cell tumor.

PRODUCT DETAILS

Kyphon V Premium Vertebroplasty utilizes a small-gauge osteo introducer to percutaneously access the vertebral body and inject highly viscous bone cement into the trabeculae to stabilize the fracture.

Maximum Precision, Minimum Exposure

With the Kyphon Cement Delivery System, the Kyphon V Premium Vertebroplasty System allows you to:1,2

  • Minimize Radiation Exposure by standing up to four feet away from the radiation source, which has been measured to reduce hand radiation exposure by 70% (compared to Kyphon Bone Filler Device when measured with dosimeters under fluoroscopy)*
  • Stop Cement Flow Instantly2 by pushing the Quick Release button to minimize the potential for cement extravasation

Comprehensive Solution

  • 13Ga Kyphon Kurve™ Bone Filler Device
  • 10Ga, 11Ga, 13Ga straight access tools

*

The mean radiation reduction at the hands was 77.79% (p<0.001). Based on an internal testing of 24 total cadaveric procedures (n=12 using Kyphon CDS and n=12 using Kyphon Bone Filler Device). Dosimeters were placed on the wrist and fingers to measure radiation when delivering bone cement into the vertebral body. Radiation result reported is based on adherence to the Directions for Use.
