We report three cases of percutaneous osteoplasty for the treatment of hypervascular bone metastasis. Four hypervascular bone metastases were treated in three consecutive patients by percutaneous osteoplasty under fluoroscopic or computed tomographic guidance. Primary malignant tumors included pheochromocytoma and renal cell carcinoma. Pain relief after osteoplasty was achieved in all three patients. There was no major complication. Projectile bleeding and subcutaneous hematoma were noted during or after osteoplasty but were easily controlled conservatively. Percutaneous osteoplasty for hypervascular bone metastases is not only a highly effective but also a minimally invasive technique that provides immediate pain relief without major complication.
