Kyphoplasty is a process in which the original angle and height of kyphosis of a fractured vertebra is corrected. After correcting the vertebra, it is stabilized by injecting cement mixture into the hollow area. Mechanical intravertebral expansion is used to restore the lost height and angle of the vertebra. A bone or vertebral fracture causes immense pain to the patient. This pain is relieved once the lost height of the compressed vertebra is restored. This can be easily achieved through Kyphoplasty.
Patients who get affected with osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures are strong candidates for Kyphoplasty, provided they have a painful back. Functions and mobility of the patient will be severely affected with. Pain following severe arthritis and disk herniation cannot be treated with Kyphoplasty. Image tests can be handful in diagnosing a typical case of vertebral compression fractures. Spinal X-rays, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging scans and bone scans are some of the image tests used for clarification.
In the procedure of Kyphoplasty, a small incision is made and a narrow tube is inserted so that a pathway is formed to the crushed vertebrae. Through this tube a special inflatable balloon is passed on to the crushed space of the vertebrae. Then it is slowly inflated which makes the crushed pieces of the bone to return to normal position. After obtaining the normal height and angle, cement mixture is inserted into the cavity. The mixture is filled only after taking out the balloon. The cement harden quickly and this makes the vertebra hard as it was early.
