BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Using percutaneous cement injection to treat vertebral compression fractures (VCF) stemming from advanced malignancy, particularly those showing posterior cortical defect and epidural extension, is associated with higher risk of complications compared with treating benign osteoporotic VCF. The purpose of this study was to examine the clinical feasibility of a technique designed to improve control of cement placement. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective series of… CONTINUE READING
