The method of percutaneous vertebroplasty (bone cement filling of the affected vertebral body) was first applied in 1984, at the university clinic in Amiens (France). This is the advanced method, which allows to restore the function of the damaged vertebral body, prevent vertebral fracture and disability of patients. The use of percutaneous vertebroplasty for vertebral body fracture allows the patient recover quickly: the periods of hospitalization and postoperative recovery are reduced for several times. For example, the hospitalization of the patients with vertebral body fractures after vertebroplasty is 1 day and a week later they can return to their lifestyle. This operation lasts 30 minutes. It is done without incision with the help of a single needle. We use bone cements of various viscousity. In case of tumors, before vertebroplasty, it is possible to conduct radiofrequency ablation of the tumor, which contributes to its more complete destruction. The use of percutaneous vertebroplasty in vertebral body tumors (hemangioma, metastasis) helps prevent its possible fracture, and also relieves the patient from the need for radiation therapy. Percutaneous vertebroplasty can be performed under local or epidural anesthesia, which allows the patient to stand up and leave the hospital after a few hours.
