Understanding Kyphoplasty A Minimally Invasive Marvel

Kyphoplasty is a cutting-edge surgical intervention primarily used to treat compression fractures in the spine. These fractures are often the result of conditions such as osteoporosis or tumor-related complications. When a vertebra collapses due to weakening bone, it can lead to a shortened spine, causing chronic pain as the fallen vertebra compresses spinal nerves.

The Kyphoplasty Procedure

Kyphoplasty is performed using minimally invasive techniques that involve intra-operative fluoroscopy and advanced instruments. Here's how the procedure works:

Balloon Inflation

To address the fracture, a balloon is carefully inflated at the site of the affected vertebra. This creates a cavity within the bone.

Cement Injection

Quick-setting bone cement is then injected into the cavity, providing immediate stability to the spine. The cement restores the vertebra's original shape and prevents further collapse.

Conditions Treated by Kyphoplasty

Kyphoplasty is highly effective in treating compression fractures resulting from conditions including osteoporosis or tumors. It can significantly alleviate pain, correct spinal deformities, and restore spinal stability. This procedure offers an alternative to traditional treatments such as bracing, bed rest, and pain medication.

Patient Experience and Typical Results

Kyphoplasty is known for its efficiency and minimally invasive nature. In most cases, a surgeon can correct a fractured vertebra in under an hour. If multiple vertebrae are involved, the procedure may take more time accordingly. Patients can expect a restoration of upright posture, height, spinal stability, and mobility, along with a significant reduction in back pain.
