Answer

Answer

Multiple vertebroplasty kits are available. Each manufacturer has their own specific subsets with unique names for the devices, but the basic components are the same: access needle, syringe, cement, and cement mixing apparatus. See individual manufacturers’ guidelines for further information on individual kits.
