    A Patient's Experience with Painful Vertebral Compression Fractures

    Authors: ,

Abstract

We present a single patient’s experience with VCFs, vertebroplasty, and kyphoplasty to highlight the debilitating nature of these fractures and the immediate relief some patients experience with vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. Her course of multiple fractures and treatments is quite common. However, the lateralized refracture of T12 likely due to asymmetric cement distribution is atypical.
