be out of the radiation field leading to reduced radiation exposure by clinicians.

CareFusion has established a dedicated sales force to sell the AVAmax Vertebral Balloon in order to drive product adoption and market penetration in the U.S. The company intends to expand commercial availability to Europe. The global kyphoplasty procedure health care segment is currently estimated to represent approximately $600 million in sales.

With the launch of the new AVAmax Vertebral Balloon, CareFusion now offers a full line of products in one system that address both vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty, the two primary approaches to treat spinal compression fractures by delivering bone cement into the vertebral space with specialized needles. CareFusion is already a market leader in devices for vertebroplasty procedures.

More about kyphoplasty

Spinal compression fractures are often caused by osteoporosis, a disease of low bone strength that affects an estimated 10 million Americans, resulting in an estimated 700,000 spinal fracture cases that can cause disabling pain, height loss, balance difficulties and a decreased quality of life. In the U.S., approximately 50 percent of women and 25 percent of men over the age of 50 will experience an osteoporosis fracture in their lifetime.  

During a kyphoplasty, a small balloon is used to create a cavity in the vertebral body. Bone cement is then delivered into the cavity to stabilize the spinal fracture. A vertebroplasty does not include the use of a surgical balloon to create a cavity before delivering the cement.
