Interventional radiology device maker Izi Medical Products (Owings Mills, Md.) announced today that it has received the CE mark for its Kiva vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatment system.
Kiva is a unipedicular PEEK implant-based treatment system that is already available in the U.S. The implant is designed to mimic cancellous bone and provide structural support to prevent further collapse of vertebral body. Its unipedicular deployment method allows midline placement to support the axial vertebral body load.
