Percutaneous vertebroplasty is an efficient procedure to treat pain due to osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. However, refracture of cemented vertebrae occurs occasionally after vertebroplasty. It is unclear whether such fractures are procedure-related or part of the natural course of osteoporosis. The effect of potentially important covariates on refracture risk in cemented vertebrae has not been evaluated previously. We retrospectively analyzed the incidence and possible causative… CONTINUE READING
