VCF is characterized by the collapse of one or more vertebral bodies, resulting in insistent and unbearable pain in patients. Osteoporosis, a degenerative bone disease, is the major cause of VCF among the elderly women. Metastatic spinal tumors, multiple myeloma, metastatic bone disease, and traumatic injuries are other causes of VCF. Individuals with VCF can undergo vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty to rectify the condition. Both procedures are minimally invasive and conducted on an outpatient basis. The use of two balloon devices makes kyphoplasty stand apart from vertebroplasty. The insertion and gradual inflation of these devices help restore the pre-facture shape and height of the vertebral bodies. Both these vertebral augmentation procedures lead to long-term maintenance of spinal bones injured by compression fractures, irrespective of their source. These procedures reduce pain in individuals, lessen the need for pain medications, decrease dependence on canes or other supporting devices, and help return to a relatively normal level of physical activity.
