Vertebral augmentation


Every day interventional radiologists are approached by patients to resolve their vertebral pathologies. In recent years, considerable technological progress has been made as a consequence of the extraordinary outcomes of minimally invasive techniques, which have helped countless patients to achieve pain relief and avoid many of the complications associated with open surgery.

In this Hands-on Device Training, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty and balloon kyphoplasty will be discussed, and devices for each of these procedures will be presented and available for participants to practice with.
