We are pleased to announce the recent publication of “Prospective Single-Site Experience with Radiofrequency-Targeted Vertebral Augmentation for Osteoporotic Vertebral Compression Fracture”, which was co-authored by Larry Miller, PhD and published in the most recent issue of the Journal of Osteoporosis.
The study utilized the StabiliT® Vertebral Augmentation System, produced by DFINE, Inc., San Jose, California. The StabiliT® Vertebral Augmentation System is a fully integrated state-of-the-art system that represents precision-controlled advances in the treatment of vertebral compression fractures. The clinical results showed that RF-TVA dramatically reduces back pain severity, improves back function, and reduces pain medication requirements with no observed complications in patients with osteoporotic VCF. Remotely controlled cement delivery may reduce physician radiation exposure during vertebral augmentation procedures. Overall, the initial clinical results of this prospective trial are promising and warrant further study in larger series with longer follow-up periods.
