Osteoporotic or pathologic fractures are a common source of pain and disability in our aging population. The initial treatment is usually conservative with bed rest or bracing. The surgical treatment of vertebroplasty involves the introduction of cement into the fractured vertebral body. This commonly results in satisfactory resolution of the pain syndrome with improvement in overall function and an improved sense of well-being. Common complications of the introduction of cement may be related to the flow of the material outside the bounds of the vertebral body such as veins, spinal canal, or lungs.
