Abstract

The first image-guided percutaneous vertebroplasty was performed in France in 1984. Percutaneous vertebroplasty recently has been introduced as a therapeutic alternative for the treatment of pain associated with compression fracture. Several European reports have described excellent results for treatment of compression fracture, and complications were minor and infrequent. We experienced a case of root injury after percutaneous vertebroplasty in compression fracture, which was treated by posterior decompression and removal of the cement.
