Background: Bone cement is uncommon cause of foreign-body pulmonary embolism.
Discussion: 65-year-old woman with a wheeze presented with multiple linear opacities with bone density on chest x-ray.
She reported a percutaneous vertebroplasty 4 months ago. Non-contrast chest computerized tomography showed
peripheral cement emboli in pulmonary arteries. The patient received conservative treatment.
Conclusion: Clinicians should be aware of this potential complication following vertebroplasty. It is necessary to perform
a chest x-ray after procedure.
