Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have higher rate of osteoporosis and vertebral fracture than individuals without RA. This study aimed to compare the outcomes of balloon kyphoplasty (KP) perfor...
To evaluate the clinical safety and efficacies of percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP), percutaneous vertebroplasty with dual injections (PVPDI), and percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) for the treatment of o...
A prospective, international, randomized, non-inferiority study comparing an implantable titanium vertebral augmentation device versus balloon kyphoplasty in the reduction of vertebral compression fractures (SAKOS study).
Balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) is a commonly performed vertebral augmentation procedure for painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs).
Although surgical intervention, such as percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP), is the standard treatment for osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs), its effectiveness and safety are unclear....
Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are minimally invasive techniques used to treat vertebral compression fractures. The etiology of vertebral compression fractures varies among patients. Although osteopor...
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...
This study aims to compare three treatments in recent (less than 6 week duration) non-traumatic ( usually osteoporotic) vertebral fractures.
Conventional vertebroplasty is an effective option in the treatment of bone lesions (osteoporotic and neoplastic). It is indicated as an analgesic treatment and aims at reinforcing a compr...
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...
Balloon Kyphoplasty is an alternative to vertebroplasty in the treatment of painful malignant vertebral fractures. This is a mini-invasive percutaneous treatment, aiming to stabilize the ...
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.
Procedures to repair or stabilize vertebral fractures, especially compression fractures by injecting BONE CEMENTS into the fractured VERTEBRAE.
