BACKGROUND CONTEXT Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) are being increasingly treated with minimally invasive bone augmentation techniques such as kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty. Both are reported to be an effective means of pain relief; however, there may be an increased risk of developing subsequent VCFs after such procedures. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness and complication profile of kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty in a single patient… CONTINUE READING
