STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanical investigation using human cadaveric vertebral bodies. OBJECTIVE To evaluate differences in biomechanical stability of vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) repaired using an expandable titanium mesh implant, with and without cement, as compared with standard balloon kyphoplasty. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Vertebral augmentation, either in the form of vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty, is the treatment of choice for some VCFs. Polymethylmethacrylate, a common… CONTINUE READING
