Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty

For patients with pain from vertebrae fractures in Dallas

Here at Texas Pain Relief Group we have seen our fair share of spinal injuries.

One issue that we see a lot is known as a compression fracture of a vertebrae. This most typically results from Osteoporosis or Osteopenia where the human bone is weaker than usual.

In other words, a vertebrae couldn’t handle the force exerted on it and resulted in the fracture of that vertebrae.

Treatment options for pain from vertebrae fractures

To fix this fracture we use a procedure known as Vertebroplasty; this is where we inject bone cement into the fractured vertebrae through a small hole in the skin.

Another treatment option is a Kyphoplasty. It is often done under general anesthesia.

For this procedure, a balloon catheter is guided into the vertebrae and then inflated. As the balloon inflates, it will restore the area of collapsed vertebrae. From there the surgeon fills the space with bone cement.

For some patients, a decrease in pain can be seen almost immediately. For others, it could take 24-48 hours before signficant change in pain levels are felt.

Who should have a kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty?

Patients who are suffering from chronic pain from a recent osteoprotic fracture are good candidates. For best results do not delay in seeking a kyphoplasty when cosidering treatment options. It should be done within eight weeks of the fracture occuring.
