Vertebral compression fracture
One of the more commonly occurring fracture types is Vertebral Compression Fractures (VCFs). VCFs are cracks in the vertebral body that often occur due to osteoporosis and low bone density in old patients. However, they can also be caused by trauma, tumors, or other bone diseases.
A traumatic spinal injury in which a vertebra breaks due to a high-energy axial load is called a burst fracture. For instance, this happens in traffic collisions, falls from a great height, and some types of seizures. Moreover, a burst fracture can lead to shards of vertebra penetrating surrounding tissues and sometimes the spinal canal.

Amber Implants aims to provide a new and complete treatment for a wide variety of vertebral fractures.
Yearly, more than 1.5 million people suffer from vertebral fractures. Additionally, a vertebral fracture is a life-threatening disease and causes severe back pain, limited mobility, height loss, and several other issues.
65% of the vertebral fractures patients experience serious side effects with existing treatments. Some of these effects are caused by the injection of PMMA bone cement into the vertebra.
Higher morbidity levels were reported in patients treated with non-surgical VCF methods when compared to patients that are treated surgically (also depending on the method).
