Vertebroplasty / Kyphoplasty

In kyphoplasty, a surgical device or instruments are placed into the broken vertebra and used to reduce the vertebral body collapse towards its original shape.The central void created after removal of the surgical device or instruments is then filled with stabilizing material, leaving the material in place to stabilize the fracture in the improved vertebral shape.

Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive spinal procedure that involves an injection of bone cement through a small hole in the skin into a fractured vertebra. It is a type of vertebral augmentation surgery.
