IZI Medical Launches Osteo-Site Vertebral Balloon

The company launched the Osteo-Site Vertebral Balloon for vertebral augmentation, completing IZI's line of Vertebral Compression Fracture treatment options that include Osteo-Site Vertebroplasty, Osteo-Site Balloon Kyphoplasty, Blazer Curved Needle Augmentation and Kiva PEEK implant augmentation.

The Osteo-Site Vertebral Balloon creates a cavity within the vertebral body and is currently available in 10G and 11G sizes. Jovie Soriano, IZI Medical SVP of Marketing and Business Development, said, "The Osteo-site balloon will be paired with our Duro-Ject Injector, which provides maximum control and feedback during injection and minimizes radiation exposure with a long flexible tubing. We have also made improvements to our Murphy access needles based on physician feedback that will be included in the Osteo-Site Balloon kit."
