What is SpineJack® :
SpineJack® procedure is intended for internal fracture reduction and fixation directly within the injured vertebral body. To surgically reduce these vertebral body fractures created by compression forces, the SpineJack® deploys in a controlled cranio-caudal way, leading to a fracture reduction, while preserving the surrounding bone trabeculae. Once the fracture has been reduced, the SpineJack® maintains the restoration of the fracture. To secure the reduction achieved in the long term, internal fixation is performed by the injection of Vexim Biomaterials.
SpineJack® system is indicated for use in the reduction of mobile spinal fractures that may result from osteoporosis, trauma fractures types A according to the Magerl classification and malignant lesions myeloma or osteolitic metastasis.
SpineJack® is well documented in published studies in highly respected scientific journals with focus in all type of indications leading to vertebral fractures.
SpineJack® Procedure :
The procedure is a minimally invasive surgical procedure designed to relieve pain, stabilize the fracture and restore your fractured vertebra to its initial phase. It can be done in a radiology operating room.
Under X-ray guidance, the surgeon makes two very thin incisions about one centimetre long, in your back and creates a narrow access path to the fractured vertebra to insert two implants.
The surgeon then inserts the implants and injects the bone cement to stabilize the fracture.
The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia but may be performed under local anaesthesia, depending on your surgeon’s recommendation.
This procedure takes about 30 minutes per fracture level treated plus the preparation and recovery time.
After the Procedure :
1. Immediate pain relief
Patients usually report immediate relief from back pain. But as everyone perceives pain differently, a mild painkiller may be prescribed for several days.
2. Almost immediate return home
3. Fast return to work and daily activities
Once discharged from the hospital, you may be surprised by how quickly you’re able to resume your favourite activities.
Please note that the success of the treatment varies from one patient to another
