Abstract

Interventional Radiology has played an increasingly critical role in the arena of women’s health. Specifically in the spine, image-guided interventions consist primarily of vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, spine biopsy, and pain management. The evolution of vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty have changed the management of osteoporotic and malignant vertebral body compression fractures (VCFs), This chapter will discuss each intervention, with particular emphasis given to step-by-step descriptions of the procedures.
