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...
Doctors are studying an investigational treatment to be used during the vertebroplasty procedure when treating vertebral compression fractures (spine fractures) that may help to reduce pai...
The OsseoFix Spinal Fracture Reduction System facilitates the treatment of spinal fractures by providing internal fixation and stabilization using a titanium implant in conjunction with Os...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether percutaneous vertebroplasty is able to improve long-term quality of life in patients with pain secondary to osteoporotic vertebral fractur...
To evaluate the clinical outcomes of minimally invasive targeted radiofrequency tumor ablation (t-RFA) and kyphoplasty (also known as vertebral augmentation) in painful metastatic lesions ...
Spinal metastases are the most commonly encountered tumour of the spine, occurring in up to 40% of patients with cancer. Each year, approximately 5% of cancer patients will develop spinal metastases. ...
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is primarily found in an older population. This is a similar demographic group that develops both osteoporosis and vertebral compression fractures (VCF). This report revie...
Previous studies have reported a high incidence of re-collapse of the augmented vertebrae after percutaneous vertebral augmentation (PVA) for osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs) with ...
Kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty have become one of the most frequent surgical procedures in the treatment of vertebral compression fractures. Often, the cause of compression fractures is lowered bone m...
We have read with interest the article on vertebral fractures after stopping Denosumab by Cummings SR et al. (1). Denosumab discontinuation is followed by a rebound effect with an increase of CTX abov...
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)
A surgical procedure that entails removing all (laminectomy) or part (laminotomy) of selected vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the SPINAL CORD and/or SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. Vertebral lamina is the thin flattened posterior wall of vertebral arch that forms the vertebral foramen through which pass the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Broken bones in the vertebral column.
Acute and chronic conditions characterized by external mechanical compression of the SPINAL CORD due to extramedullary neoplasm; EPIDURAL ABSCESS; SPINAL FRACTURES; bony deformities of the vertebral bodies; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations vary with the anatomic site of the lesion and may include localized pain, weakness, sensory loss, incontinence, and impotence.
Procedures to repair or stabilize vertebral fractures, especially compression fractures by injecting BONE CEMENTS into the fractured VERTEBRAE.
