Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty

Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty Surgery in India

Minimally invasive procedures to treat people with vertebral compression fractures.

  • In vertebroplasty, bone cement called polymethylmethacrylate is directly injected into the fractured bone through a hollow needle.

  • Whereas, in kyphoplasty, before injecting the bone cement, the compressed vertebrae is expanded with the help of a balloon raising it back to its normal height. The balloon is withdrawn and the space between the vertebrae is filled with the bone cement. 

Common causes of a non-traumatic/ trivial trauma vertebral fracture 

  • Osteoporosis

  • A metastatic tumour growth.

  • Bone marrow cancer or multiple myeloma

  • Vertebral haemangioma or benign vascular tumors
