55 year old Nagalaxmi, who was bedridden for one month due to ACUTE OSTEOPOROTIC WEDGE COMPRESSION FRACTURE OF L1 Vertebra, consulted Vydehi Pain clinic for her unbearable back pain. Along with this, she had a history of Ischemic heart disease, stroke, and ACUTE ON CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE with CREATININE 3.9.
Therefore, a high-risk VERTEBROPLASTY procedure was successfully performed on her at Vydehi Pain Clinic. This advanced percutaneous procedure was done entirely under LOCAL ANAESTHESIA, and only 2ml of contrast dye was used to prevent contrast-induced Nephropathy. With excellent pain relief, she started ambulating the very next day.
