Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of painful vertebrae fractures in the spinal column. When a vertebrae fractures, the usual rectangular shape of the bone becomes compressed, causing pain. These compression fractures may involve the collapse of one or more vertebrae in the spine.
When vertebra breaks or fracture, bone fragments develop. Pain occurs when these fragments slide or rub against each other or protrude into the spinal cord. Kyphoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. Bone cement is injected into vertebrae that have cracked or broken, often because of osteoporosis. The cement hardens, stabilizing the fractures and supporting your spine.
