No two fractures are alike. Providing a choice in technology for the treatment of vertebral compression fractures is essential. SHIELD®’s Barrier Technology™ provides ultimate cement control by directing cement to the central/anterior vertebral body.

The unilateral, curving design of the SHIELD® system aims to offer the ultimate in safety, reliability and treatment selection.


  • Barrier Technology™: The first of its kind providing the ultimate in cement control, SHIELD® directs cement to the central/anterior vertebral body, creating an optimized cement column.

  • Unipedicular Approach: SHIELD®’s unipedicular approach may help reduce the risks associated with vertebral body access and radiation exposure.

  • Curved Cavity Creation: Curved instruments prepare a pathway across the sagittal midline into the contralateral side, enabling full vertebral body coverage.
