OWINGS MILLS, Md., August 2, 2021 / PRNewswire / – IZI Medical Products, LLC (“IZI”), a leading manufacturer of interventional radiology devices and products for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures, announces the official launch of Vertefix HV cement (“ Vertefix HV ”). Vertefix HV provides a unique solution that addresses the need for real-time flow visualization during cement injection for vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty procedures.
“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 high viscosity variable size barium particles makes this possible, improving patient outcomes and safety.”
“Vertefix HV will help you control your cement and allow you to have excellent cement viscosity immediately after mixing. It has optimum cement volume with good working time and viscosity, as well as excellent visualization in order to so you can see when the cement is flowing and where it’s going. Insite beads are a great addition and are now a novelty for all cements on the market. Ultimately, this is the best cement I have used since I can remember, ”said Dr. Douglas beall, Head of Spine Services and Interventional Services, Specialized Comprehensive 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 barium particles of varying size is really nice. Said Dr. Jonathan morris, Neuroradiologist.
The new Vertefix HV Cement with Insite Tracking Beads offers high viscosity and long working time and is an innovative enhancement to IZI’s spinal augmentation portfolio. “We worked with doctors to find out what would really help them in spinal augmentation procedures. Their feedback has been insightful and we are delighted with what we have been able to offer with Vertefix HV, ”said Jovie Soriano, SVP Marketing and Commercial Development, IZI Medical.
