We report the surgical procedure and clinical outcomes of a cement augmented anterior reconstruction with pedicle screw fixation for osteoporotic vertebral collapse with an intravertebral cleft (Kummell's disease). Ten consecutive patients with cord compression were enrolled in this study. The mean number of fused segments was 3.2. Instrumentation and posterolateral bone grafts were performed for one level above and below the collapsed vertebra with the exception of one patient… CONTINUE READING
