Hi i am new here and would like to know if anyone has any info on a procedure called Kyphoplasty? I have a Compression fracture of T8 with a heamangioma complication. This fracture occurred after I slipped on loose gravel & sat down hard on my rear end. Pain to upper back only started a month later. I think it was due to quite a lot of activity that w end.I had an MRI which showed this result. After two weeks i was re-x-rayed and there is now further collapse of the vertebrae ..50% now. My Specialist has spoken to me about a procedure called a Kyphoplasty although he did say it was risky. Any info would be welcome on this injury and procedure.
Thank you.. Ave
