Abstract

Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive technique that is used to treat vertebral fractures, tumors and osteolytic vertebral metastases. However, cement leakage to the venous system is a potential source of serious complications after percutaneous vertebroplasty. We report a 65-year-old female patient who demonstrated cardiac perforation, pulmonary cement embolism, and tricuspid regurgitation, and these were all caused by venous leakage of polymethylmethacrylate as a complication of the procedure.
