Vesselplasty Procedure

Overview

Vesselplasty is a new technique advancing the Kyphoplasty technique. Instead of using balloon this procedure uses a PET artificial vessel, the Vessel-X®, to restore the height of the vertebral body, it serving as a Vertebral Body Expander and also serving as the Bone Void Material Container.  It is introduced into the vertebra in a reduced configuration and once positioned within the vertebra, it is expanded to its predetermined configuration raising the endplates and creating a void along with the introduced of bone void filler material.  And then, a few bone void filler material penetrates through Vessel-X®, interdigitating the vertebral body. In the end, Vessel-X® and the bone void filler material will be remained at the predetermined injected area.  This new technology, Vesselplasty, thoroughly solves the fatal problem of leakage of cement out of the vertebral body.
