Intravertebral sliding system «Sky»


Description of operation vertebroplasty (kyphoplasty)

Intravertebral sliding system «Sky» is intended for the treatment of compression fractures of thoracic and lumbar vertebrae from Th5 to L5, and lets you restore the height of the vertebral body and form a void in cancellous bone (the method of vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty).

The installation procedure Intravertebral sliding system «Sky».


The principle of operation vertebroplasty (kyphoplasty)

The expanding tube comes in the form of non-dilated and is mounted in the inlet system. It is introduced into the bone, and after installation in the correct position is being controlled expansion to achieve a final extended state. After completion of the expansion tube is returned to its original condition and is removed from the bone.

The expansion tube is done by rotating the handle inlet system in a clockwise direction, with the scale on the casing shows the extent of expansion and the end of the extension.

Compression tube (before its removal) is performed by rotating the handle inlet system counterclockwise until the indicator on the scale does not reach the level of the minimum diameter of the expanding section.

Cases in which compression fractures of vertebral body height restoration is shown, distraction, and fixation to improve the functioning and mobility, any treatment for spinal deformities to restore the form to the following conditions:

  • Patients over 18 years and has a mature skeleton
  • These survey coincide with the radiological data on the level of lesion
  • Back pain caused by vertebral compression fractures, requires relief (since the pain significantly reduces the activity of the patient and impairs its domestic adaptation)


Contraindications to surgery vertebroplasty (kyphoplasty)

  • Diseases and pathological conditions of a general nature, in which surgery or surgery with this device may be contraindicated
  • First performed vertebroplasty in the affected levels
  • TB history
  • Pregnancy
  • Infection, localized at the site of surgery, osteomyelitis, fever and / or leukocytosis (according to the full clinical analysis of blood and determination of ESR)
  • Morbid obesity
  • Scoliosis with an angle of 40°
  • Allergic reaction to bone cement or materials to fill voids in bone

In this case, intervention duration of hospital stay is limited to several hours.
