Kyphoplasty in India
Kyphoplasty spine surgery is a minimally invasive procedure which supports fractured or compressed vertebrae and also helps in reducing back pain and as well as helps in restoring the height and spinal alignment. During the fracture of vertebrae, the bone which is shaped rectangular gets compressed causing terrible pain. During such cases of compression fractures, there could be a high possibility of collapse of the vertebrae in the spine and becomes a common symptom resulting in osteoporosis. This is a disease that results in loss of bone density, mass and strength leading to weak bones having a lot of pores and which are vulnerable for breaking.
In this Kyphoplasty procedure, balloons are used to elevate the fractured vertebrae to bring it back to its original and correct position. This balloon creates a cavity that is filled with cement which protects from future damages.
Kyphoplasty is done on patients who experience painful symptoms or spinal deformities due to vertebral compression fractures resulting from osteoporosis. Kyphoplasty is also performed on patients who:
• Are aged or are in poor health to tolerate open spinal surgery.
• Have too frail bones for surgical spinal repair
• Have a vertebral damage due to a cancerous tumor
• Are younger and have osteoporosis caused by a long-term steroid management or a metabolic disorder
Kyphoplasty is performed under local or general anesthesia. Using image guidance x-rays, two small incisions are made and a probe is placed into the vertebral space where the fracture is located. The bone is drilled and a balloon, called a bone tamp, is inserted on each side. These balloons are then inflated with contrast medium (to be seen using image guidance x-rays) until they expand to the desired height and removed. The balloon does not remain in the patient. It simply creates a cavity for the cement and also helps expand the compressed bone.
The spaces created by the balloons are then filled with PMMA, the same orthopaedic cement used in vertebroplasty, binding the fracture. The cement hardens quickly, providing strength and stability to the vertebra, restoring height, and relieving pain.
Benefits of Kyphoplasty
Limitations in the traditional treatments of vertebral compression fractures have led to the refinement of such procedures as kyphoplasty. This procedure provide new options for compression fractures and are designed to relieve pain, reduce and stabilize fractures, reduce spinal deformity, and stop the "downward spiral" of untreated osteoporosis.
Additional benefits of kyphoplasty include :
• Short surgical time
• Only general or local anesthesia required
• Average hospital stay is one day (or less)
• Patients can quickly return to the normal activities of daily living
• No bracing required
Kyphoplasty was shown to be more effective than non-surgical care for the treatment of acute vertebral compression fractures.
Patients treated with kyphoplasty had faster and greater improvement in back pain relief, back function and quality of life at one month after surgery. The benefits of kyphoplasty were sustained on average through 12 months. The overall frequency of patients with adverse events did not differ between the kyphoplasty and the non-surgical groups.1
• Minimally Invasive, Scarless , Minimal Pain & discomfort to the patient
• Quick recovery and return back to active work life
• Minimal Tissue trauma and no risk of complications that may result from open surgery
• Quick Symptom relief within two weeks of undergoing the Nucleoplasty Surgery.
