Percutaneous Kyphoplasty for Osteoporotic Vertebral Body Fractures
Osteoporotic fractures is a common cause of pain and neurological morbidity in elderly patients. Timely treatment significantly improves pain and provides early mobility.
Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Kyphoplasty is “a standard of care” treatment for such fractures. It is performed using fine needles under local anaesthesia, thereby avoiding morbidity of general anaesthesia and invasive surgery.
We present one such case of D12 Osteoporotic fracture with progression of collapse on conservative management. Patient underwent “Percutaneous Balloon Kyphoplasty using PMMA under local anaesthesia”
