Description

Kyphoplasty is a minimal invasive surgery performed to repair spine fractures (vertebral compression fractures) by injecting bone cement. The procedure is similar to Vertebroplasty. The approach in Kyphoplasty involves the use of a small balloon that is inflated to create a void prior to injecting bone cement. After a void is successfully created the procedure continues in the same manner to that of a vertebroplasty.

Symptoms

This surgical procedure is recommended: To repair vertebral compression fracture (spinal fractures) caused due to osteoporosis or any spinal injuryAs palliative treatment for spinal tumorTo treat spinal injury To repair vertebral compression fracture (spinal fractures) caused due to osteoporosis or any spinal injury As palliative treatment for spinal tumor To treat spinal injury

Pre Procedure

The doctor may recommend the following: A thorough physical exam and routine testsFasting for 8 to 10 hours prior to the surgeryStopping blood thinners, at least 10 days before the surgeryMRI to check the exact location of the fracture and plan the best treatment A thorough physical exam and routine tests Fasting for 8 to 10 hours prior to the surgery Stopping blood thinners, at least 10 days before the surgery MRI to check the exact location of the fracture and plan the best treatment

During Procedure

The procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia, and might take upto 2 hours. During the procedure, A biopsy needle is guided into the fractured vertebra by the help of fluoroscopic x-ray.A balloon is injected via the needle, into the bone, and then inflated. This restores the height of the vertebrae.This is followed by injecting a cement-like substance into the space created due to the fractured bone.The bone cement hardens in approximately 10 minutes. This congels the fragments of the fractured bone and provides stabilization to the collapsed bone.The needle is removed and skin puncture is bandaged.

Post Procedure

After the procedure is complete, the patient is made to rest for 2 to 3 hours. Generally, the patient is discharged on the same day. After the discharge, the doctor will recommend the patient to Medically manage osteoporosis so as to prevent spinal fractureAvoid strenuous activities for 3 to 4 weeksAvoid smoking and alcohol consumptionTake dietary supplements (eg. calcium, vitamin D) Medically manage osteoporosis so as to prevent spinal fracture Avoid strenuous activities for 3 to 4 weeks Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption Take dietary supplements (eg. calcium, vitamin D)
