UNLABELLED Purpose of the study was to demonstrate the effectiveness of expanding a fractured vertebral body by transpedicular dilatation and stenting. 7 human cadaveric vertebral bodies from L2 to L5 underwent axia compression until a vertebral burst fracture was provoked. Then, by bilateral transpedicular approach, balloon-catheters were introduced, which were armed with stents, usually used for angioplasty. The catheters were inflated with radiolucent fluid and the stents expanded under… CONTINUE READING
