Percutaneous cementoplasty

Cementoplasty includes percutaneous procedures like vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, osteoplasty, and sacroplasty. Bone packing with cement aims to treat or prevent vertebral and extraspinal pathological fractures and relieve pain in patients with osteoporosis and bone metastases. The authors outline the accepted and newer indications for patient selection and present the fundamentals of image-guided lesion access and cement injection. Practitioners should evaluate each patient carefully and have a thorough knowledge of the anatomy, the technique, the expected outcomes, and the potential complications. Detailed informed consent and multidisciplinary decision making are recommended. Understanding of the particular advantages and limitations of the various modern filler materials is also crucial for a successful and uncomplicated procedure. Future developments include new mechanical devices for effective restoration of vertebral height, as well as the introduction of osteoconductive and osteoinductive cements that will be able to promote more physiological bone healing
