Percutaneous Vertebroplasty in Adult Degenerative Scoliosis for Spine Support: Study for Pain Evaluation and Mobility Improvement

Figure 5

Scottie dog (45° degrees oblique) projection in a patient with symptomatic adult degenerative scoliosis (pain at L1, L2, and L3 level treated with percutaneous vertebroplasty). At 6 months followup, patient reported pain distributed at the level of L5-SI left facet joint which was treated with fluoroscopy-guided infiltration (injectate containing long acting corticosteroid and local anesthetic). Contrast medium injection under fluoroscopy verifies the intra-articular needle placement.
