- Purpose of research: developing a kyphoplasty instrument of memory alloy wire netting ball and discussing the possible treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture. Method: The application of Ni-Ti alloy hyperelastic wire netting ball, the application of the equipment which can stretch and compress the wire netting to conduct kyphoplasty and the test of the peak load. Result: the diameter of the stretched memory alloy wire netting ball is 4.5mm, the diameter can be 15mm thanks to kyphoplasty instrument which restore the shape of ball. The peak load could reach 169.39 by the intense open force according to the biomechanical tests. Conclusion: the kyphoplasty instrument of memory alloy wire netting ball can be used in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture while its clinical application needs more researches.
