Vertebroplasty

Definition

This is a surgery to treat a broken or collapsed spinal fracture and to correct the spine.
Of bone fractures due to osteoporosis, one of the common types is vertebral compression fracture.
In this case, due to very severe pain in the spine around the broken region, it severely limits the patient's daily life.
Vertebroplasty is not a major surgery requiring an incision and is done simply under local or regional anesthesia.
During the surgery, a thin needle is inserted into the bone with stress fractures and through the needle, artificial bone cement is inserted to solidify the bone and reduce the pain.

Targets

  • Vertebral compression fractures that cause pain

Advantages

  • The pain is reduced initially and walking becomes possible within a few days. Therefore, prolonged bed rest that prevents weakened muscle from strengthening and decreased bone mineral density are avoided.
  • Compression fractures due to osteoporosis and trauma can be treated
