New U.S. Patent for Osseon Steerable Devices

By Julie A. Vetalice

Osseon received U.S. Patent No. 9,510,885 for a Steerable and Curvable Cavity Creation System.

The device broadens Osseon's line of bone-augmenting products to treat spinal compression fractures and provides the foundation for new devices planned for 2017.

Osseon launched the Osseo-flex® BT Steerable Bone Tamp in 2011. Release of a smaller-diameter version in 2014 accommodated treatment of compression fractures of smaller vertebra in the thoracic and lumbar spine; these products were said to be a significant contributor to growth.
