This overview article is designed to(More)
Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are a frequent occurrence in geriatric traumatology. Differences in the achievement of pain reduction and restoration of the height of the vertebral body after balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) or radiofrequency-targeted vertebral augmentation (RF-TVA) were to be tested on a randomized population.
