The Osseoflex SN+ steerable needle enables direct access to the entire vertebral body by way of a unipedicular approach for percutaneous vertebral augmentation. The Osseoflex SN+ 8 gauge steerable, articulating needle is used either individually or in combination with the Osseoflex SB 10 gauge steerable balloon for cavity creation.
Cavity creation is achieved through the disruption of bone by steering and channeling with the Osseoflex SN+ or by inserting the Osseoflex SB steerable balloon for void creation.
• Steerable control over direction and articulation of the needle
• Actuation indicator provides visual confirmation on the degree of articulation
• Includes two 8 gauge cannulas with stylets
• Flexible inner stylet adds columnar strength and prevents bone shards from blocking the lumen’s aperture.

Osseoflex SN+ Description
Osseoplasty® is a minimally invasive procedure that provides a unipedicular approach for percutaneous vertebral augmentation, with or without cavity creation. The Osseoflex SN+ steerable vertebral augmentation needle is a mechanical device used to disrupt cancellous bone by steering and channeling through the bone creating a void within a vertebral body. The Osseoflex SN+ can be utilized for multiple level vertebral body access. After the bone is disrupted, polymeric bone cement is injected through the Osseoflex SN+ steerable vertebral augmentation needle to fill the previously created void.
Osseoflex SN+ Indications for Use
The Osseoflex SN+ steerable vertebral augmentation needle is used during a vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty to fill a fractured vertebral body with polymeric bone cement. Painful pathological vertebral body compression fractures may result from osteoporosis, benign or malignant lesions such as metastatic cancers and myeloma.
