Cement pulmonary embolism is a rare complication of cement kyphoplasty. These emboli are often asymptomatic and commonly detected many years after the procedure as incidental findings on radiographic imaging. We herein report a case of a 32-year-old professional diver who was diagnosed with asymptomatic cement pulmonary emboli during his annual diving physical exam. After two years of follow-up the patient remained asymptomatic and resumed his career in professional diving, which included deep sea diving activities with no evidence of respiratory limitations or long-term complications.
