– Radiofrequency kyphoplasty is an evolutionary procedure of kyphoplasty that permits a safe intervention because of the availability as well as the prolonged and mechanically controlled application of an ultrahigh viscosity PMMA cement. – Avoiding creation of a large cavity and the unilateral access commonly employed when using the VertecoRTM MidLine Osteotome ensure gentle handling of the substance. – Compared to its predecessors, radiofrequency kyphoplasty is a procedure of equivalent clinical efficacy, yet potentially less traumatic and safer.
