Abstract

Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure in which polymethylmethacrylate polymer is used to treat painful diseased vertebral bodies. However, despite its minimally invasive nature and relative safety, cement leakage beyond involved vertebral bodies into the venous system can induce devastating cardiovascular complications. Here, the authors report a case of multiple cardiac perforations and pulmonary embolism caused by cement leakage after percutaneous vertebroplasty.
