Indication
The StabiliT® Vertebral Augmentation System is intended for percutaneous delivery of StabiliT® Bone Cement in vertebral augmentation (kyphoplasty) procedures in the treatment of pathological fractures of the vertebrae. Painful vertebral compression fractures may result from osteoporosis, benign lesions (hemangioma), and malignant lesions (metastatic cancers, myeloma).
 

Radiofrequency-Targeted Vertebral Augmentation™ with the StabiliT® Vertebral Augmentation System

Get rapid and lasting back pain relief with the most advanced targeted therapy available for spine fractures, also referred to as vertebral compression fractures.

Radiofrequency-Targeted Vertebral Augmentation (RF-TVA™).

          

RF-TVA, formerly referred to as RF Kyphoplasty, is a minimally invasive solution for patients who suffer from spine fractures, and offers significant advantages over a vertebroplasty procedure or conventional balloon kyphoplasty procedure.  RF-TVA offers your physician predictable and unparalleled control when treating spine fractures, from initial access to final stabilization of the fractured vertebra.1-6

To date, thousands of patients worldwide have benefited from the positive effects of RF-TVA.

The StabiliT Vertebral Augmentation System

The StabiliT Vertebral Augmentation System is the latest advancement in the treatment of spine fractures. The StabiliT System enables your physician to predictably perform a RF-TVA procedure that will bring rapid relief to back pain caused by a spinal fracture.1-6

Ask your physician about RF-TVA with the StabiliT Vertebral Augmentation System.
