1) Normal Vertebra

Normal Vertebra

2) Fractured Vertebra Spinal Fracture, also known as Vertebral Compression Fracture (VCF)

3) IBT Insert

Through two small incisions, the doctor creates narrow pathways into the fractured bone and inserts two KyphX® balloons.

6) Internal Cast

The cement forms an internal cast that holds the vertebra in place.

4) IBT Inflated

The balloons are carefully inflated in an attempt to raise the collapsed vertebra and return it to its normal position. The balloons are then deflated and removed, leaving a cavity within the bone.

5) Filling the Cavity

The cavity is filled with a bone cement to support the surrounding bone and prevent further collapse.
