STUDY DESIGN A prospective observational cohort study of consecutive osteoporotic patients with sacral insufficiency fractures (SIFs). OBJECTIVE Assess the safety and efficacy of sacroplasty in treating osteoporotic SIFs. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA SIFs can cause low back pain in osteoporotic patients. Symptomatic improvement may require up to 12 months. Treatment includes limited weight-bearing and bed rest, oral analgesics, and sacral corsets. Significant mortality and morbidity are… CONTINUE READING
