Kyphoplasty is used to treat painful compression fractures in the spine. Compression fracture is where all or part of a spine bone collapses. Compression fractures are caused due to thinning of your bones or osteoporosis. Kyphoplasty is recommended if the patients have severe and disabling pain for 2 months and doesn’t get reduced with medicines and physical therapy. Kyphoplasty includes complications like bleeding, infection, allergic reactions to medicines, breathing or heart problems.
