RF-TVA™ with the StabiliT® Vertebral Augmentation System

Provide rapid and lasting back pain relief to your patients with the most advanced targeted therapy available for vertebral compression fractures.

RF-TVA
Radiofrequency-Targeted Vertebral Augmentation™ (RF-TVA™) (formerly RF Kyphoplasty) represents a significant procedural advancement in minimally invasive spine fracture treatments. Vertebral augmentation involves the use of targeted cavity creation and the controlled injection of ultra-high viscosity cement that, together, may reduce the likelihood of cement extravasation during vertebral augmentation.1 RF-TVA marginalizes vertebroplasty related risks of cement leakage and minimizes the balloon kyphoplasty related damage to native bone.

The StabiliT System
The StabiliT Vertebral Augmentation System is the latest advancement in the treatment of spine fractures. The StabiliT System allows you to safely and efficiently perform RF-TVA procedures that will bring rapid relief to back pain caused by a spinal fracture.2-7
