PURPOSE To evaluate different types of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) leakage and patient-related factors in relation to clinical midterm (1-24-month) outcome after vertebroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS Standardized four-view radiographs obtained during 363 vertebroplasties in 181 treatment sessions in 152 patients were reviewed (121 patients with osteoporotic fractures, 30 with malignant disease, and one with hemangioma). Four types of PMMA leakage and other potential predictors (patient age… CONTINUE READING
