Prodecures

Percutaneous Vertebroplasty:

Often just called vertebroplasty, this procedure involves injecting special 'cement' into vertebrae that have collapsed or fractured. Similar to stabilising a broken bone, vertebroplasty may reduce pain from an acute vertebral body fracture by fixing the fractured bone togeather. The cement is like that used for holding hip and knee replacements in place, and has being specially made to allow it to be seen clearly under X-ray imaging.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic with light sedation, and patients can often go home the same day. A special needle is introduced into the fractured or collapsed vertebral body using X-ray guidance and then cement is injected into the vertebral body, using X-ray's to make sure the cement does not go outside the bone.
