Ascendx Spine is dedicated to improving surgical outcomes for patients suffering from vertebral compression fractures. Current clinical data suggests patients with vertebral compression fractures that are treated via traditional balloon kyphoplasty show a significant reduction in pain post surgery but are likely to suffer from additional fractures at a high rate.
Clinical testing for the Ascendx VCF Repair System included a prospective and multicenter evaluation of 60 subjects treated with the Ascendx System and the Ascendx cement. Improvement in pain, function and quality of life was significant after treatment with the Ascendx VCF Repair System, while complications were minimal. A summary of which can be found under the OUR TECHNOLOGY page.
The Ascendx VCF Repair System and Acu-Cut Vertebral Augmentation System have received CE Mark approval and Ascendx Spine has established distributors in key countries throughout Europe. The Acu-Cut Vertebral Augmentation System also is approved for sale in the United States.
