STUDY DESIGN An ex vivo biomechanical study using cadaveric vertebral bodies. OBJECTIVE To determine how bone mineral density (BMD) affects mechanical strength and stiffness of the vertebral body after vertebroplasty, and to determine how the association between mechanical properties and BMD varies with amount of cement injected. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Adverse events associated with vertebroplasty include cement leakage and adjacent fractures. Understanding effects of bone density and… CONTINUE READING
