Stryker's Interventional Spine business unit announced the release of its iVAS inflatable vertebral augmentation system, a minimally invasive device cleared for use in treating vertebral compression fractures (VCFs).

The device is part of a range of mixer and delivery systems, bone cements and needles for both vertebral augmentation (balloon kyphoplasty) and vertebroplasty.

iVAS is designed with five key features that help promote enhanced procedure efficiency and outcomes:

  • The stiff distal balloon catheter provides rigidity for smooth insertion.
  • A flexible proximal catheter allows for easy maneuverability.
  • The radiopaque markers on the balloon catheter helps facilitate accurate visualisation and placement of the balloon.
  • The hand drill cuts cleanly through cancellous bone to create a channel for balloon placement.
  • Graduation markings on the access cannula assist in measuring needle depth.
