Quality of Life After Vertebroplasty Versus Conservative Treatment in Patients With Painful Osteoporotic Vertebral Fractures

2014-08-27 03:18:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 fractures, compared to conventional medical treatment.

Description

Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are associated with pain and severe disability in a high percentage of patients. Vertebroplasty has become the treatment of choice to alleviate pain in those patients who have not responded to medical treatment.Although several case series and non-randomized studies have shown the effectiveness of vertebroplasty in alleviating pain secondary to osteoporotic vertebral fractures, the long-term effect of this treatment has not been compared to standard medical treatment in a randomized study.

In our study we have analyzed the long-term effect of vertebroplasty in terms of quality of life in patients with painful osteoporotic vertebral fractures, randomizing them into two arms: percutaneous vertebroplasty or conventional medical treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Forward displacement of a superior vertebral body over the vertebral body below.

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.

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

Radiographic visualization of the aorta and its branches by injection of contrast media, using percutaneous puncture or catheterization procedures.

The immersion or washing of the body or any of its parts in water or other medium for cleansing or medical treatment. It includes bathing for personal hygiene as well as for medical purposes with the addition of therapeutic agents, such as alkalines, antiseptics, oil, etc.
