About this product

Division: Biomaterials
Category: Augmentation

The Vertebroplasty Needle Kitis used to create a percutaneous access to individual vertebrae, with the purpose of performing a vertebroplasty1. Either intra- or extrapedicular access can be chosen, depending on physician preference, patient-specific variations and vertebral physiology. The needles come in packs of two.

Cement can be injected through the front of the needle or through a side-opening inner cannula. The latter technique permits better and more active control of the cement flow, a feature which Synthes was first to introduce on the market. Through a simple 90° twist this feature can also be used to completely separate the cement in the vertebra from cement still inside the needle.

Other useful features include color coded handles, a wide range of sizes and geometries, and the opportunity to do intraoperative biopsies without the need of a second access2.
