Vertebral Augmentation is a minimally invasive surgery used to resolve vertebral fractures. The surgery focuses on reducing pain, increasing mobility, and improving the quality of life for the patient.
The AVAflex Vertebral Balloon System uses a curved, nitinol needle to strategically place the vertebral balloon and cement. The system has the ability to reduce procedure time, patient trauma, and radiation exposure for the clinician. See Press Release.
