What is a Vertebral Fracture?

Occurs when one or more bones in the spine weaken and crumple.

A compression fracture is typically caused by a loss of bone mass (osteoporosis) that occurs as part of aging. A fall, cough, or lifting of a heavy object may cause a fracture of the back bones. Symptoms can include severe back pain, height loss, and a hunched-forward posture.

Vertebral compressions fractures, (VCFs), are a serious problem for older Americans. Approximately 700,000 VCFs occur each year, equating to a staggering 40 VCFs every thirty minutes. For patients with a vertebral fracture, The Ramos Center will be able, in most cases, to relieve or significantly reduce pain by performing a vertebral augmentation kyphoplasty or a vertebroplasty.

Fragility fractures are a serious and growing problem for older adults and the healthcare system. In fact, 50% of women and 25% of men will have an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetime. 

Vertebral Augmentation, Balloon Augmentation or Kyphoplasty Balloon

The Ramos Center physicians have been using the iVAS Inflatable Vertebral Augmentation System successfully during recent years. The equipment used is part of an unparalleled portfolio of mixer and delivery systems, bone cements, needles, and cavity formation devices. During this type of vertebral augmentation, a balloon catheter is used to pneumatically push and compact the bone inside the fractured vertebra, creating a void in the collapsed vertebra to help and allow for controlled and contained cement delivery. The cement (bioactive resin) also flows to interdigitate inside the trabeculae and once hardened, the cement creates an internal cast that stabilizes the fracture, thereby reliably alleviating pain in approximately ninety percent of patients*.
