Doctors have performed the first vertebral stentoplasty in North India.
The rare procedure took place at Fortis Escorts, Okhla, and was performed on a 65-year-old woman who had suffered a spinal fracture after a fall at home.
She was diagnosed with a compression fracture of the L1 vertebra which led to acute pain and left her unable to stand or walk.
