The purpose of the present study is to identify independent risk factors for the occurrence of cement leakage (CL) during percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) for four different leakage types in treating osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs). We retrospectively reviewed 292 patients who underwent PVP for single-level OVCF from January 2009 to March 2011. The influences of several potential risk factors that might affect the occurrence of CL were assessed using univariate and… CONTINUE READING
