Best Spinal Surgeon UKThe London Spine Unit is a specialist clinic for Balloon Kyphoplasty as Day Surgery.
Methods: We treated 5 patients with re-collapse after PVA in our hospital. For re-collapse after PVA, we performed anterior column reconstruction with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), posterior fixation with percutaneous pedicle screws (PPSs) and minimally invasive spine stabilization (MISt).
Results: The mean postoperative follow-up was at 62.8 months. At the final follow-up, the patients were free of low back pain, and bony union was achieved in all cases. The postoperative correction loss was 6 degrees. Perioperative complications included aspiration pneumonia in one patient and bone fracture of an adjacent vertebral body in two patients. There were no reoperation cases.
Conclusions: We perform minimally invasive combined anterior and posterior surgery with VATS for re-collapse after PVA. This procedure is useful in elderly patients with less reserve capacity.
