EXPLORE THE PROCEDURE

Overview

TREATING VCF WITH BALLOON KYPHOPLASTY

Balloon kyphoplasty uses orthopedic balloons to restore vertebral height and correct angular deformity from VCF due to osteoporosis, cancer, or benign lesions. After reduction, the balloons are deflated and removed. The resulting cavity allows for a controlled deposition of bone cement to form an internal cast and stabilize the fracture.

KEY FEATURES OF THE KYPHON™ BALLOON Kyphoplasty PLATFORM

  • 700 psi max rated inflation pressure, higher than previous 400 psi rated balloons.*
  • Cement resistance technique lets you deliver cement through one cannula while the contralateral balloon remains inflated to maintain fracture reduction.
  • Kyphon™ cement delivery system (CDS) lets you deliver cement from up to 48 inches away from the radiation source during a kyphoplasty procedure.

KYPHON BALLOON KYPHOPLASTY INDICATIONS

Kyphon™ balloon kyphoplasty 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.
