RATIONALE: Spinal wire damage (SCI) is likely one of the frequent problems of spinal surgical procedure. There isn’t a particular therapy and time of decompression for spinal wire induced by epidural hematoma throughout vertebroplasty.
PATIENT CONCERNS: A complete of 6 sufferers with SCI throughout vertebroplasty have been included in our analysis. All of them occurred sensory disturbance and motor dysfunction as a result of a decrease or identical degree operative vertebral physique lesion in vertebroplasty.
DIAGNOSES: Neurological manifestations throughout vertebroplasty, postoperative magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography.
INTERVENTIONS: As soon as SCI occurred in vertebroplasty, 4 sufferers have been underwent spinal wire decompression instantly, and two sufferers have been accomplished after 14 and 22 hours, respectively.
OUTCOMES: Earlier than decompression operation, one affected person was Frankel A, three have been Frankel B, and two have been Frankel C. Sooner or later after evacuation of the SEH, three sufferers recovered to regular neurological perform (Frankel E), one to Frankel C, and one to Frankel D, however the different one didn’t get better. On the final follow-up, 5 sufferers had recovered to Frankel E and one affected person to Frankel D.
LESSONS: In accordance with our expertise, when SCI happens throughout vertebroplasty, neurological deficits are at all times secondary to acute SEH. Well timed decompression, significantly switch surgical procedure, can shorten restoration time.
