Executive Summary

Patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures now have another alternative to vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty. The SpineAlign system from SpineAlign Medical Inc. uses a combination of cement and a permanent implant to elevate the vertebral endplates in parallel. In addition, the expandable metal device is composed of nitinol threaded at the end, so that a pedicle screw can be attached and locked into the system for a sturdy construct.
