BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE It has not been clarified whether the postoperative resolution of vertebral deformities achieved by KP are superior to those achieved by VP. We compared the outcomes of KP and VP, taking into account the presence of vertebral mobility, to determine whether the balloon inflation in KP may contribute to postoperative resolution of the vertebral deformities in patients with VCFs. MATERIALS AND METHODS The subjects had 34 vertebral bodies treated by VP, and 43 vertebral… CONTINUE READING
