How is the Balloon deployed?

InSpace™ Balloon deployment is performed at the physician’s clinic with the patient positioned as in arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, mainly in Beach Chair or lateral decubitus positioning.

Deployment is achieved through a 5-step procedure.

Step 1

Evaluation of the shoulder and tendon’s condition, determining if an irreparable rotator cuff tear is presented using standard subacromial arthroscopy.

Step 2

Selection of the correct balloon size by measuring the subacromial space using an arthroscopic probe. Three balloon sizes are available (S/M/L).

Step 3

Insertion of the introducer into the subacromial space.

Step 4

Inflation of the balloon by using saline.

Step 5

Balloon sealing and deployer retraction.

The InSpace™ balloon is in-situ. The patient can usually go home the same day of the procedure. The rehabilitation period is shortened since NO major surgery or tendon repair is involved.
