Vertebroplasty, Kyphoplasty, Cementoplasty.
S5® is the first cement injector equipped with an automatic pressure-overload safety feature.
The safety system is designed so that the maximum pressure permitted by the injector is controlled. It prevents from rapid and massive cement injection and device failures.
As the cement viscosity increases over time, the pressure generated inside the syringe is simultaneously increases. The maximum pressure tolerated by the delivery gun can be controlled to progressively perform the augmentation procedure preventing rapid and massive injection of cement into vertebral body.
As soon as the pressure inside the syringe reaches the initial maximum pressure tolerated by the delivery gun, the automatic security mechanism is activated and the cement cannot be injected anymore. At this time, the surgeon increases the maximum pressure by turning “the crank” and continues the injection with “the handle” until the security system is activated again. The injection procedure is progressively carried out, adapting the delivery system to the bone cement viscosity.
S5® can be associated with Teknimed vertebroplasty needles.
