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...
The objective of this study is to measure the effect that the scraping and scoring of vertebral cancellous bone using the Kyphon® Curette has on vertebral body anatomy height restoration ...
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 ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of the SpineJack® with the Kyphx Xpander® Inflatable Bone Tamp and support a non-inferiority finding for the use of S...
This study aims to compare three treatments in recent (less than 6 week duration) non-traumatic ( usually osteoporotic) vertebral fractures.
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, always accompanied with pain and height loss of vertebral body, has a significant negative impact on life quality of patients. Vertebroplasty or kyphoplast...
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 body fractures (OVFs) represent a significant medical and socioeconomic burden. There is ongoing debate concerning the role of cement augmentation versus conservative management...
Forward displacement of a superior vertebral body over the vertebral body below.
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
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.
Splitting of the vessel wall in the VERTEBRAL ARTERY. Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the vertebral artery, aneurysm formation, or THROMBOEMBOLISM. Vertebral artery dissection is often associated with TRAUMA and injuries to the head-neck region but can occur spontaneously.
