INTRODUCTION Sacral insufficiency fractures are often overlooked and lead to severe therapy-resistant pain. These fractures can be most sensitively detected with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Similar to balloon kyphoplasty, sacroplasty provides fixation of these fractures with cement. OBJECTIVES This study was carried out to investigate whether pain is reduced using this method and whether computed tomography (CT)-guided cement application results in less cement extravasation and fewer… CONTINUE READING
