Spine region: Thoracic
Patient gender: M
Patient age: 64
Level(s) treated: T4, T5
Age of fracture(s): 6-8 weeks


Results

Dr. Kortman was very pleased with the results and flexibility of the StabiliT System while performing RF-TVA. Cement flowed nicely into the targeted channel in T5 created by the VertecoR MidLine Osteotome. It moved into the superior fracture plane and began to interdigitate into native trabecular bone toward the inferior endplate.
