Objective of the Kyphoplasty Procedure
Kyphoplasty is a procedure used to restore the strength and height of a collapsed or fractured vertebra by infusing bone cement in the affected vertebra. It is mainly indicated in elderly patients suffering from weak and brittle bones due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease of the old age in which the bones become weak and brittle due to lack of calcium and are vulnerable to fractures even with trivial trauma. The vertebral column is most susceptible to such osteoporotic fractures as it bears the entire weight of the upper body while doing any small or big task. The aim of Kyphoplasty is to reduce the pain of fractured vertebra, to reinforce the weakened bone and to restore normal vertebral height.Post a Query
The vertebral column consists of 33 small bones called vertebra. Each vertebra has a basic structure comprising of a body anteriorly (in front) and a vertebral arch posteriorly (behind). The vertebral arch consists of two transverse processes that project sideways, two pedicles (flat bone between body and transverse process), lamina (flat arched bone between the transverse process and the spinous process) and the spinous process (backward projection). The vertebral arch encloses the spinal canal which lodges the spinal cord.Request a Call Back
Details of the Kyphoplasty procedure
It is also known as Balloon Kyphoplasty. It is a minimally invasive procedure which takes just over an hour to be performed, hence can be done on an inpatient or outpatient basis. The patient may be sedated under general or local anaesthesia depending on his/her medical condition. The patient is made o lie down on his abdomen. During the surgery, a small incision is made in the midline on the back, through which the doctor places a narrow tube. Using fluoroscopy to guide it to the correct position, the tube creates a path through the back into the fractured area through the pedicle of the involved vertebrae.
Using X-ray images the doctor inserts a special balloon through the tube and into the vertebrae, and gently and carefully inflates it. As the balloon inflates, it elevates the fracture, returning the pieces to a more normal position. The balloon is removed and the doctor uses specially designed instruments under low pressure to fill the cavity with a cement-like material called polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). After being injected, the pasty material hardens quickly, reinforcing the weak vertebra.Post a Query
Who All May Need Kyphoplasty Treatment?
This procedure may be recommended to all those patients with collapsed vertebral bodies due to age related osteoporosis or in osteoporosis secondarily to high dosage of steroids. So It can be done on younger as well as elderly age group.
Recovery After The Kyphoplasty Treatment
Pain relief will be immediate for some patients. In others, elimination or reduction of pain is reported within two days. At home, patients can return to their normal daily activities, although strenuous exertion, such as heavy lifting, should be avoided for at least six weeks.
