What is Kyploplastly?
Kyphoplasty addresses the pain and deformity from compression fractures and is designed to stop the pain caused by a spinal fracture, to stabilize the bone, and to restore some or all of the lost vertebral body height due to the compression fracture.
Using X-ray images, the doctor inserts a special balloon through the tube and into the vertebrae, then gently and carefully inflates it. As the balloon inflates, it elevates the fracture, returning the pieces to a more normal position. It also compacts the soft inner bone to create a cavity inside the vertebrae. The balloon is removed and the doctor uses specially designed instruments under low pressure to fill the cavity After being injected, is hardens quickly, stabilizing the bone.
