Mumbai: A new less-complicated orthopaedic spine surgical procedure called Balloon Kyphoplasty is proving to be the most suitable option to treatVertebral Compression Fractures (VCFs) that occur as a complication of osteoporosis, cancer or trauma.
This procedure uses two orthopaedic balloons, insertedthrough one centimetre incisions. The balloons are gentlyinflated inside the fractured vertebrae to gently raise thepatient`s collapsed bone to its pre-fractured height, creatinga void inside the vertebral body. "After deflating and removing the balloons, the voidis filled with viscous bone cement in a controlled mannerunder low manual pressure," Chaddha said. Bureau Report
