Blazer-C® is a vertebral augmentation system that utilizes a unique cannulated curved wire offering mechanical channel creation, predictable cement deposition across the entire vertebral body and an MIS unilateral approach.
Blazer-C allows the physician to control placement of the device and create channels providing cement coverage across the entire vertebral body. Blazer-C can be used to successfully treat pathological vertebral compression fractures including use in sclerotic bone, blastic lesions and chronic fractures.
Blazer-C is indicated for the treatment of pathological compression fractures of the vertebral body that may result from osteoporosis, benign lesions, or malignant lesions, by creating channels in the existing spinal bone structure for the flow of polymethylmethacrylate bone cement (PMMA).
Mechanical Channel Creation Via Nitinol Wire
The cannulated Blazer-C wire allows the physician to control placement of the device and create channels within the vertebral body where desired. Blazer-C can be used to treat pathological vertebral compression fractures including use in sclerotic bone, blastic lesions and chronic fractures.
Predictable Cement Deposition Through Cannulated Wire
Cement flow follows the channels created by Blazer-C providing directional control during cement delivery through the cannulated tip of the Blazer–C wire.
MIS, Unilateral Approach
The Blazer-C wire is easy to advance and retract consistently. The system is designed to provide complete vertebral body coverage via a unilateral approach. It is available in 10G (3mm) outer diameter.
