Percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) is effective in treating the osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs). Intervertebral bridging ossification can be detected after surgery sometimes, but studies related to its formation mechanism and influence on the outcomes were few.

Although percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) is performed to restore the vertebral body height and kyphosis in osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs), the regained height may be lost upon bal...
Osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF) is a common disease in the aged population that can greatly affect the quality of life. Percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) has become a mainstream approa...
The aim of the current study was to use a Bayesian network meta-analysis to evaluate the relative benefits and risks of balloon kyphoplasty (BK), percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP), and non-surgical tr...
Percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) is widely applied for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs) and has achieved satisfactory clinical results. With the accumulation of clin...
Percutaneous vertebroplasty remains widely used to treat osteoporotic vertebral fractures although our 2015 Cochrane review did not support its role in routine practice.
Balloon kyphoplasty is a well-established treatment option to achieve pain relief and to correct kyphotic deformity caused by osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture. However, it has b...
This study aims to compare three treatments in recent (less than 6 week duration) non-traumatic ( usually osteoporotic) vertebral fractures.
Kyphoplasty(PKP) is performed under general anaesthesia in patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture. The balloon is first placed into the fractured vertebra and inflated w...
Vertebral body fractures are a major health care problem in all countries with incidence 1.4%. They are a common cause of severe debilitating pain, with consequent deteriorated quality of ...
Patients with osteoporotic vertebral body compression fractures will be randomly assigned to treatment with balloon kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty. Over 2 years of follow-up, back pain, ba...
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISK due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.

Excision, in part or whole, of an intervertebral disk. The most common indication is disk displacement or herniation. In addition to standard surgical removal, it can be performed by percutaneous diskectomy (DISKECTOMY, PERCUTANEOUS) or by laparoscopic diskectomy, the former being the more common.
Procedures to restore vertebrae to their original shape following vertebral compression fractures by inflating a balloon inserted into the vertebrae, followed by removal of the balloon and injection of BONE CEMENTS to fill the cavity.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
