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 will compare two treatments in acute stable traumatic vertebral fractures (types A1, A2 and A3.1 in MAGERL Classification). The two treatments are the followings: 1. Conserv...
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 ...
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...
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...
Propensity score matching study OBJECTIVE.: To assess the cost effectiveness of balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) in Japan.
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...
Japan has many patients with osteoporosis; however, only about one-fifth of these patients receive treatment. Although some treatment guidelines exist for osteoporosis, the number of newly diagnosed p...
The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the efficiency of early versus delayed treatment of vertebral fractures by balloon kyphoplasty with regard to fracture age. A total of 106 patients (3...
Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs) are common diseases in elderly patients and can cause serious thoracolumbar compression fractures. For patients with such fractures, conservative t...
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.
The use of balloon CATHETERS to remove emboli by retraction of the balloon that is inflated behind the EMBOLUS.
A balloon-assisted enteroscopy utilizing a flexible endoscope with one overtube balloon control unit.
Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
Counterpulsation in which a pumping unit synchronized with the patient's electrocardiogram rapidly fills a balloon in the aorta with helium or carbon dioxide in early diastole and evacuates the balloon at the onset of systole. As the balloon inflates, it raises aortic diastolic pressure, and as it deflates, it lowers aortic systolic pressure. The result is a decrease in left ventricular work and increased myocardial and peripheral perfusion.
