INTO-Balloon

Epidural decompression & adhesiolysis

Target treatment to the lesion

Epidural brosis is the pathological morphologies that can be found in the epidural space of patients affected from failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), stenosis and other chronic painful pathologies, usually grouped in the class of low back pain (LBP) syndrome.

Accordingly processed epidural adhesiolysis affords patients a reduction in pain and neurologic symptoms without long recovery period. INTO-Balloon manufactured by INTOCARE reinforces mechanical adhesiolysis by inflating balloon, and effectively injects medication.

Advantage

  • Optimal mechanical adhesiolysis by repeating in ation and de ation of balloon
  • Direction controllable soft catheter
  • Radiopaque and atraumatic tip & shaft
  • Targeted injection for chemical adhesiolysis
  • Disposable ¬∑ Easy to use

Indication

  1. Failed back surgery syndrome.
  2. Epidural adhesion
  3. Postlaminectomy syndrome of the neck and back after surgery
  4. Herniated/Bulging Disc
  5. Spinal stenosis
  6. Thoracic disk related chest wall and abdominal pain (after mapping)

Procedure Tech.

1. Check the hiatus position under C-Arm view and give local anesthesia.

2. Introducer needle placement through the sacral hiatus into sacral canal.

3. Remove the stylet and inject contrast medium. Catheter is placed in the ventral epidural space. Steer the catheter to the level to operate [Check the catheter position through C-Arm. Be sure to clear air bubbles from the catheter with syringe before use]

4. Inflate the balloon by injecting diluted contrast medium with disposable syringe. [Depressed balloon under C-Arm view is natural due to the adhesion]

5. Inject the medication through medication channel after locking the valve. [Catheter should be moved with balloon deflated]

6. Deflate the balloon and remove the catheter and needle after usage.
