Acute Paraparesis Caused By Spinal Epidural Fluid After Balloon Kyphoplasty For Traumatic Avascular Necrosis: A Case Report – Balloon Kyphoplasty

Balloon Kyphoplasty

The article discusses a rare case of acute paraparesis caused by spinal cord compression due to epidural fluid following a minimally invasive procedure called balloon kyphoplasty (BK) for the treatment of Kummell’s disease. Normally, complications associated with BK are due to cement leakage, but in this case, the spinal cord compression occurred in the absence of cement leakage. This is the first reported case of such a complication. The article emphasizes the need for careful monitoring and consideration of potential complications even in the absence of cement leakage during BK procedures

Abstract

Minimally invasive procedures, such as percutaneous vertebroplasty or balloon kyphoplasty (BK), eliminate motion at the fracture site and relieve pain associated with traumatic avascular necrosis when conservative treatment fails. However, these are associated with complications, most of which are directly related to cement leakage. Herein, we report a rare case of acute paraparesis caused by spinal cord compression by epidural fluid following BK for the treatment of Kummell’s disease in the absence of cement leakage. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report describing this complication.
