- 40 patients were treated in two center
- Patients were followed up 24 months post-op
- Comparable pain relief and quality of life improvement were achieved with both vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty techniques with approximately 50% less volume required for vertebroplasty
- Cortoss trabecular interdigitation and bone bonding were observed in histology obtained 6 months following vertebral augmentation with kyphoplasty
The results of this study were the basis of Cortoss' clearance by the FDA. As we gear up for the Fall Class, TSB can hear the echo of John Fogerty in the back ground singing, "put me in coach, I'm ready to play today." TSB wants to know, how do you rate Cortoss? Single, Double, Triple, Home Run, or Grand Slam?
