I have cancer of the thoracic spine. According to the MRI, I have wedge-shaped vertebrae, and small fractures in some places, with the absence of normal bone. Is it possible to undergo a vertebroplasty if the lumbar region is also affected? Will the lumbar vertebrae be able to support the thoracic vertebrae after this procedure?
It is necessary to analyze the MRI scans in this case. Metastatic vertebral bodies are treated with radiation and chemotherapy according to our principles. Vertebroplasty is possible, but it is difficult to say anything specific without seeing the scans.
