Vertebroplasty is the percutaneous injection of bone cement into a symptomatic fractured vertebral body under fluoroscopic guidance. It is a safe and simple outpatient procedure. We discuss patient selection, the techniques, and the results based on our experience and that of our radiology colleagues.
