Osteoporotic Vertebral compression fracture occurs in approximately 20% of individuals over 70 years of age. A significant majority of fractures approx 60% to 75% occur around the thoracolumbar region. The fractures can result in persistent pain, inability to perform daily activities, and a marked decrease in the quality of life. Reduction of pain and stabilization of vertebrae and prevention of deformity are the goals of treatment in vertebral compression fracture. The purpose of this technical note is to demonstrate the usefulness of minimal invasive cement augmented screw vertebroplasty along with short segment fixation at junctional vertebral compression fracture and its intraoperative effectiveness in preventing devastating complications.
