CARE Hospitals, Malakpet, Hyderabad, today performed a rare and complex spinal procedure called ‘vertebra-stentoplasty’ on an 80-year-old female patient, Mrs. Chidamma (Name changed). The procedure, successfully performed by Dr. K V Shivanand Reddy, Senior Neurosurgeon, CARE Hospitals, Malakpet, Hyderabad and his team has revolutionized the treatment of spinal fracture by relieving spinal pain and restoring mobility in a short span of time.
Patient Mrs. Chidamma approached CARE Hospitals Malakpet, with a history of severe low backache. She had previously undergone a spinal fracture operation at another hospital one month ago but did not experience relief from her symptoms. Upon evaluation, it was discovered that the screws placed during the previous surgery were not properly positioned and were encroaching on the spinal canal. Based on the patient’s condition, age and comorbidities, the decision was made to remove the screws and perform minimally invasive vertebra-stentoplasty.
During the procedure, bilateral balloons were used to restore the vertebral body height, which was then augmented with cement. The outcome of the surgery was highly successful, and Mrs. Chidamma is now completely relieved of her pain. She has even regained the ability to sit without any support, showcasing the significant improvement in her quality of life in a very short span of time.
Speaking about the case, Dr. K V Shivanand Reddy said, “We are delighted to achieve such a positive outcome for Mrs. Chidamma. This rare procedure has not only relieved her pain but has also restored her mobility. Seeing the happiness on our patient’s face is truly rewarding. We are committed to pursuing similar cases in the future and providing the highest level of care to our patients.”
Vertebra-stentoplasty is a complex procedure that is rarely performed in Hyderabad, making this case all the more exceptional. The successful completion of this procedure in an 80-year-old female patient highlights the expertise and commitment of the medical team.
