Developed for physicians who want low initial viscosity and longer working time.

Advantageous for multiple level vertebroplasties or balloon kyphoplasty, VertaPlex® radiopaque bone cement maintains its toothpaste-like consistency for an average of 20 minutes.1

VertaPlex® radiopaque bone cement is indicated for the fixation of pathological fractures of the vertebral body using vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty procedures.
