Revue Médicale Suisse
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article ; Review
Sacral insufficiency fracture is a debilitating injury for which no active treatment is currently available. It frequently causes significant pain and limits activities of daily living in patients with osteoporosis. Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a common procedure to alleviate the pain associated with thoracic and lumbar vertebral compression fractures. The sacral percutaneous cimentoplasty procedure (sacroplasty) has recently been introduced as an alternative to medical management of osteoporotic sacral insufficiency fractures. The purpose of this article is to illustrate the effectiveness and the utility of percutaneous sacroplasty in this kind of pathology and to show how this procedure can provide symptom relief without having major complications.
