Bone Tamps, Inflatable

Definition : Bone Tamps with balloons designed to enlarge a hole into the bone cavity. Inflatable bone tamps are used to create a cavity in the cancellous bone in an orthopedic procedure (i.e. kyphoplasty). These instruments usually include a cannula with a balloon which is inserted into the intra-vertebral space and then is inflated to create a vertebral cavity under fluoroscopic guidance. Then the balloon is removed and the cavity is filled with bone cement. Inflatable bone tamps are mainly used to reduce the compression fractures (e.g., spinal fracture).
