Have you had a vertebroplasty before? Physicians at BC Cancer are creating a patient education handout to provide information on the palliative procedure called vertebroplasty. Some people with certain types of cancer may experience a collapsed bone in the spine. This is called a vertebral compression fracture. One of the treatment options for a vertebral compression is called a vertebroplasty. This involves bone cement being injected through a needle into the fractured bone.
As a patient partner on this engagement, you will provide your feedback on the draft handout that has been developed.
