OBJECT Osteoporotic vertebral fractures occasionally lead to late-onset collapse, kyphosis, persistent back pain, and disability. The authors describe a series of patients in whom they performed percutaneous vertebroplasty by using calcium phosphate cement (CPC) to obtain early pain relief and improve the integrity of the osteoporotic vertebral body (VB).(More)
OBJECT Few studies have been conducted to compare vertebroplasty and conservative treatment for osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs). To investigate the effects of calcium phosphate cement (CPC)-based vertebroplasty on relief of pain and augmentation of the fractured vertebral body (VB), the authors compared the results of CPC-assisted(More)
OBJECT The purpose of this study was to analyze the risk factors for leakage of calcium phosphate cement (CPC) after vertebroplasty for osteoporotic vertebral fractures and to determine whether the vertebral body (VB) leakage caused any changes in the therapeutic benefits. METHODS Between August 2000 and April 2002, the authors performed 65 CPC-assisted(More)
BACKGROUND The objects of this study is to evaluate the clinical prognostic factors in renal cell carcinoma.
