For the first time in Al-Ahsa, the success of percutaneous fixation of the vertebrae using a balloon and medical screws

For the first time in Al-Ahsa, the success of percutaneous fixation of the vertebrae using a balloon and medical screws

The Department of Neurosurgery, led by Consultant Neurosurgeon and Spine, Dr. Ibrahim Hussein and Dr. Amna Hussein, a resident neurosurgeon performing percutaneous spinal stabilization using balloons and medical screws

Our patient is a farmer in his thirties, whose heart is attached to the earth and the palm tree, he belongs to it and belongs to him.

One time when he was climbing the palm, our patient fell from a height of 7 meters and ended up with fractures in two vertebrae of the spine

Dr. Ibrahim says we had two options, either traditional surgery and a complete opening of the skin and muscles, or the use of the least surgical intervention, which is the fixation through very small holes in the skin and the insertion of the balloon and then the installation of medical screws to secure the fusion of the vertebral fractures

This technique is one of the new technologies that is being conducted for the first time in Al-Ahsa

Thanks to God, the procedure succeeded while maintaining the integrity of the spine and the patient was discharged from the hospital with good functional abilities after only 48 hours
