Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty
As a result of various diseases, mineral imbalance may occur in our body and osteoporosis may occur. This osteoporosis can lead to serious deformations in the future and cause bone fractures even with minor impacts. When patients reach the chronic stage, they may experience difficulty in walking, standing up from a sitting position, and turning while lying down, and even severe pain may occur. Vertebroplasty is a type of bone strengthening surgery performed especially in cases of spinal fractures. During the vertebroplasty procedure applied to the spine bones, at least 2/3 of the vertebral height should not be damaged.

During vertebroplasty, which is a surgical operation, solutions are created to bone problems resulting from spinal fractures and cancer metastases. Since polymethylmethacrylate is injected into the vertebra in this procedure, this mixture quickly turns into a structure as hard as bone. During this erection, an excessive amount of heat is given to the environment and the nerve fibers that cause pain are damaged. In this way, chronic pain is also treated.
