Minimally invasive, Image-guided Vertebroplasty - An Advanced treatment for Spinal Osteoporosis, Osteoporotic or Neoplastic Vertebral Fractures

Osteoporosis affects our spine or the back bone with aging, continuous wear and tear, deficiency of calcium and vitamin. The spine is weakened and made vulnerable to fractures over a period of time due to this condition. Osteoporosis causes most of the spine fractures in old age and warrant a surgical intervention in many of such patients suffering from this condition. In spite of non-operative measures like bed rest, hospitalization, pain killer medications or bracing when a severe pain still persists a surgical intervention may be required.

What is Osteoporotic Vertebral Fracture ?

Vertebroplasty Treatment In India Osteoporosis is complicated by vertebral fracture that occurs spontaneously or is caused by minor trauma. These vertebral fractures are often highly painful and are treated with immobilization, analgesic drugs, and specific treatment of osteoporosis. But immobilization increases demineralization. Therefore in spite of long-term medical treatment, some patients have severe, persistent, incapacitating pain. Later consequences of vertebral fracture include reduced height, kyphosis (hunch back), and chronic back pain. Percutaneous Vertebroplasty is indicated for painful osteoporotic or neoplastic vertebral compression fractures refractory to medical therapy.

What is Vertebroplasty ?

Vertebroplasty also known as Percutaneous Vertebroplasty is a spinal procedure in which bone cement is injected through a small hole in the skin (percutaneously) into a fractured vertebra with the goal of relieving the pain of osteoporotic compression fractures and providing strength to the bone. Vertebroplasty is used for patients with vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis, metastatic tumors, or benign tumors such as vertebral heamangiomas. It also provides vertebral stabilization when the lesion threatens the stability of the spine. Vertebroplasty can increase patient mobility, decrease narcotic needs, and prevent further vertebral collapse.

Vertebroplasty Procedure

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive, image-guided procedure done by a spine surgeon. It is performed on out patient basis under local anaesthesia and light sedation. During the procedure, bone cement, polymethylmethacrylate(PMMA) is injected with a biopsy needle into the collapsed or fractured vertebra with x-ray guidance. The acrylic cement quickly dries and forms a support structure within the vertebra that provides stabilization and strength. The needle makes a small puncture in the patient's skin that is easily covered with a small bandage after the procedure.

Recovery

The patient recovery is quick as it is a minimally invasive surgery with very little blood loss and damage to surrounding tissues. The patients are kept under observation for 1-2 hrs after which they are discharged. They return to normal day to day activities within a week.
