Two guidewires are placed bipedicular inside the vertebral body using Jamshidi-needles. Working cannulas are placed using the guidewires and the guidewires are removed. A bone drill is used to create space for two balloons which are expanded using a hydraulic device. Inflation of the balloon was stopped according to the surgeon’s preference. The balloons were removed and the cavities were filled with bone cement. Cementing was stopped on clinical judgement.

Two guidewires are placed bipedicular inside the vertebral body using Jamshidi-needles. The working cannulas are mounted on a bone drill and are placed using the guidewires. The bone drill is used to create space for the two Tektona® devices. The drill and guidewires are removed afterwards. Tektona® consists of a lamella that can be sequentially expanded and retracted (Fig. (Fig.1a-f.1a-f. This step can be performed repeatingly. The Lamella can be placed more anteriorly or posteriorly as well as turned around the axis of the device. The two lamellas were removed and the cavities were filled with bone cement. Cementing was stopped on clinical judgement.
