Product:Negative Pressure Guided Bone Cement Injection System with Smart Monitoring Technique

Percutaneous Vertebroplasty (PVP) procedure or Percutaneous Kyphoplasty (PKP) suffers from a high percentage cement leakage of 30~80%, a high risk that could potentially lead to nerve and blood vessel damage, urinary incontinence, pulmonary embolism, paralysis or even death. We have developed a novel medical device that can highly diminish PVP/PKP cement leakage rate. Our solution is to apply an active negative pressure to the opposite side of the compressed vertebrate. Clinical results showed the injected cement leakage rate can be reduced down to ~6%, thus greatly decreased PVP/PKP risks.
