Abstract

Multiple myeloma is the most common primary malignant disease of the spine, which can lead to pathological fractures with consecutive instability and immobilizing pain, due to osseous destruction of individual vertebral bodies. The different surgical care is challenging, although good stabilization should be achieved if possible. The resulting blocking of micro-movements leads to pain minimization. However, this is a symptomatic therapy and does not address the primary disease. In the following, we report on successful transoral balloon kyphoplasty for the treatment of myeloma-related osteolysis with a pathological fracture of vertebral body C2, which led to a significant clinical improvement.
