Interpedicular approach in percutaneous sacroplasty for treatment of sacral vertebral body pathologic fractures

Cardiovasc Intervent Radiol. 2011 Feb;34 Suppl 2:S282-7. doi: 10.1007/s00270-010-9855-5. Epub 2010 Apr 29.


For this technique, bone needle is introduced into the S1 vertebral body through the interpedicular route by penetrating the central spinal canal at the level of S3-4 and passing through the vertebral body of S2-3 parallel to the anterior border of sacrum. With the interpedicular approach, two sacral vertebral bodies can be injected in one session and lower sacral body injection also is available. interpedicular technique is a safe, practical, and effective technique for the treatment of sacral vertebral body pathologic fractures.
