The strong force that is exerted during vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty requires materials with high tensile strength properties. DePuy Synthes Spine therefore commissioned sfm to improve an existing set.
- The results are instruments with optimized materials that guarantee increased strength and durability. During use, a bone biopsy can also be performed.
- The sliding forces of the catheter were reduced, and the force required for penetration is substantially lower.
- The new vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty sets were created in close collaboration with the customer — from design through mass production.
