Vertebral Body Augmentation Technology
Vertebral Body Augmentation (VBA) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure which reduces pain by stabilising a fractured vertebra with the use of bone cement. The majority of patients will require VBA surgery due to a compression fracture in a spinal vertebra. This type of fracture is most generally caused by a somewhat minor trauma in patients with Osteoporosis, a spinal infection, tumour, or in more severe cases a serious trauma to the spine. Vertebral Body Augmentation is usually suggested to a patient who has been suffering with long-term pain and all other more conservative methods (such as bed rest and bracing) have been attempted with little success.
The surgical treatment itself is minimally invasive and involves injecting bone cement into the inside of the fractured vertebra which in-turn creates an “internal cast” inside the effected vertebral body. The main goal of the cement is to stabilise the fracture, giving added strength to the effected vertebrae and therefore reducing the patient’s pain and results in the resolution of the pain with improvement in overall function and an improved sense of well-being.
The Vertebral Body Augmentation (VBA) procedure is most commonly associated with two types of surgery: Vertebroplasty and Syphoplasty, each is a slightly different procedure but both share the same outcome.
Vertebroplasty is a simple procedure as described above in which the bone cement is injected directly into a fractured vertebral body which then creates a type of internal cast and stabilises the fractured vertebrae.
Ballon Kyphoplasty is very similar to vertebroplasty in regards to creating an internal cast inside of the fractured vertebrae to stabilise it but additionally, this procedure is designed to reduce the deformity of the bone and restore vertebral height.
