What is it?
A compression fracture of the vertebra can be a painful and debilitating injury that can severely affect an individual’s quality of life. It can be caused by osteoporosis or injury, and can result in significant discomfort and limited mobility. However, a vertebral augmentation can provide rapid pain relief and stabilize the fracture, potentially restoring the height of the affected vertebra and reducing the risk of subsequent compression fractures in neighboring vertebral bodies.
What conditions can be treated with a vertebral augmentation?
- Osteoporotic vertebral fracture
- Traumatic vertebral fracture
- Compression fractures
- Spinal fractures
How does a vertebral augmentation procedure work?
Depending on the specific needs of the patient, the process might look slightly different, but overall, the objective of a vertebral augmentation is to strengthen the spinal column from within. This procedure involves the injection of bone cement into the affected bone within the spinal column, also known as a vertebra. The bone cement hardens quickly, which can stabilize the fracture and restore the vertebra's height, effectively reducing pain and increasing mobility for the patient. A vertebral augmentation is minimally invasive, meaning that it requires only a small incision in the skin and is performed on an outpatient basis, which allows patients to return home on the same day of the procedure
