Cavity Creation Instrument

Division: Spine
Category: Vertebral Body Augmentation

The Cavity Creation Instrument allows for a simplified technique for directed cavity creation in the treatment of vertebral compression fractures. The device allows for 360° rotation within the vertebral body. The robust, curved tip fully retracts to reduce friction during insertion and removal from the working cannula.

The Cavity Creation Instrument is part of a complete procedural solution for the personalized treatment of vertebral compression fractures. The a la carte offering allows for maximum economy, flexibility and precise surgical planning.
