Abstract

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure for treating spine. Cement leakage is problem occurring from usage of low viscosity bone cements. High viscosity bone cements are difficult to inject with current design of cement gun due to very high injection forces. A new design of cement gun is developed for injection of high viscosity bone cements with low injection forces.
