Kyphoplasty Overview:

  • Minimally invasive surgical procedure used to treat vertebral compression fractures in the spine, particularly those caused by osteoporosis or trauma.

  • Involves the injection of bone cement into the fractured vertebra to stabilize and restore its height.


Indications for Kyphoplasty:

  • Vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis.

  • Fractures resulting from trauma or weakened vertebrae.

  • Painful kyphosis (abnormal curvature) caused by vertebral compression.


Procedure and Techniques:

  1. Preoperative Imaging:

    • X-rays, CT scans, or MRI used to locate the fractured vertebra.

  2. Local Anesthesia:

    • Patient positioned under local anesthesia.

  3. Balloon Insertion:

    • A specialized balloon catheter is inserted into the fractured vertebra and inflated to create a cavity.

  4. Cement Injection:

    • The cavity is filled with bone cement (usually polymethylmethacrylate) to stabilize the vertebra.

  5. Fracture Stabilization:

    • The cement hardens quickly, providing immediate stabilization to the fractured vertebra.


Recovery and Rehabilitation:

  • Minimal recovery time compared to traditional open surgery.

  • Patients may experience pain relief and improved mobility shortly after the procedure.

  • Gradual return to normal activities under the guidance of healthcare professionals.
