VCFix® is a revolutionary implant for vertebral body augmentation developed by Amber Implants. We designed this product for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures. The VCFix® Spinal System is intended to be used in combination with an approved bone cement, and to be placed, using a transpedicular approach, in a fractured vertebra with or without posterior fixation.
VCFix®: improving the treatment of spinal fractures
Optimum mechanical performance
VCFix® expands in a craniocaudal direction, tackling the compression forces of the spine with up to 1200 newtons of expansion force. Furthermore, after the reduction of the fracture, they can carry more than 4000N without yielding. These results create confidence in the performance and safety of our device for treating a broad range of vertebral compression fractures
VCFix® implant comes in different sizes and has an adjustable angular expansion mechanism. This way, VCFix® provides an optimal fracture reduction and anatomical restoration for each patient.
VCFix® provides pedicle anchorage to better distribute the biomechanical load on the vertebral body and the spine.
VCFix® Spinal System is still under development. We are continuously working on improvements to the systems to ensure the best possible treatment for spinal injuries. The validations of the developments we describe below are still ongoing.
We are optimizing VCFix® implant to treat vertebral fractures as a stand-alone device. This means that in the future it can be used with the minimum amount of cement possible and therefore avoid any risk related to cement leakages.
Compatibility with posterior fixation
VCFix® is compatible with both short and long-segment posterior fixation. This design feature enables the treatment of incomplete burst fractures through single-level fixation located cranial to the fracture, thereby preserving an intact mobile segment that would otherwise need immobilization.
