Kyphoplasty


Just as with vertebroplasty, an instrument sleeve is first advanced to the damaged vertebra causing the pain.
However, with kyphoplasty a balloon catheter is introduced into the vertebra. This balloon is "inflated" under x-ray
guidance using a radiopaque fluid. This creates a cavity in the vertebra which remains even after removing the
balloon catheter.

The bone cement is then injected into this newly created cavity, thus stabilising the vertebra. With fresh
fractures, it may also be necessary to raise the vertebra. The patients are usually mobile and can be released
after one or two days.
