New Solution Offers Real-Time Flow Visualization During Cement Injection


IZI Medical Products has launched Vertefix HV bone cement, a unique solution that offers real-time flow visualization during cement injection for vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty procedures. 

Vertefix HV is infused with Insite tracking beads for real-time flow visualization, with high viscosity and long working time. Insite tracking beads are variable-size barium particles that offer unique flow monitoring capability down the needle and into the vertebral body.

“Our goal in developing Vertefix HV was to give physicians a better way to track and control where cement is flowing during their procedures,” said Greg Groenke, CEO, IZI Medical. “The introduction of variable-sized barium particles with high viscosity makes this possible, improving outcomes and safety for patients.”

“Vertefix HV will help you control your cement and allow you to have excellent cement viscosity immediately after mixing. It has an optimal volume of cement with good working time and viscosity, along with great visualization so you can see when the cement is flowing and where it is going. The Insite beads are a great addition and now novel to all of the cements on the market. Bottom line is, it's the best cement I've used since I can remember,” said Dr. Douglas Beall, Chief of Services and Interventional Spine Services, Comprehensive Specialty Care, Edmond, Oklahoma.

“Improved visualization of cement has always been one of the goals to provide better safety with kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty. If you can visualize the cement better it makes the procedure safer, so the improved visualization by having variable-size barium particles is really nice,” said Dr. Jonathan Morris, neuroradiologist.
