The goal of using vertbroplasty with spinal compression fractures is to relieve acute pain in the spine.
Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which special cement is injected into the fractured vertebral body, filling the spaces within the bone.
Vertebroplasty is able to relieve, and in some patients, eliminate the pain associated with the compression fracture. This procedure was originally developed to treat painful bone tumors in the spine.
It may also reduce the need for pain medication.
Following vertebroplasty, the treated vertebra is less likely to fracture again, and the pain relief achieved enables many patients to return to their previous level of activity.

When to Consider a Vertebroplasty
Patients who should consider a Vertebroplasty are usually suffering from severe pain as a result of a compression fracture. The compression fracture is less than six months old, and imaging tests (X-rays, MRI and bone scan) can pinpoint the location and age of the compression fracture. The patient has tried other conservative treatments such as taking pain medicine, resting, avoiding injury, and bracing but they have not relieved the pain.
