VCF Treatment System
The Kiva® System is a novel implant-based solution for vertebral augmentation and a departure from balloon kyphoplasty, making it the first new approach to the treatment of vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) in over a decade. In three Level I/II clinical studies, the Kiva® System was shown to meet or exceed the performance of ballon kyphoplasty.
For the first time, Kiva® allows a treating physician to deliver (through a transpedicular approach) an implant with a predictable structure. The implant also functions as a reservoir to contain and direct the flow of cement. It is indicated for use in the reduction and treatment of spinal fractures in the thoracic and/or lumbar spine from T6-L5*. It is intended to be used in combination with the IZI Vertebral Augmentation Cement Kit.
