AbstractTuberculous spondylitis of the augmented vertebral column following percutaneous vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty has rarely been described. We report an unusual case of tuberculous spondylitis diagnosed after percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP).A 61-year-old woman presented to our institution complaining of back pain following a fall 7 days before. Radiologic studies revealed an acute osteoporotic compression L1 fracture. The patient denied history of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and there were… 
Surgical outcomes of infectious spondylitis after vertebroplasty, and comparisons between pyogenic and tuberculosis
Infection spondylitis after VP required major surgery for salvage with a relevant part of residual disability, and any elevation of infection parameters should be scrutinized strictly.
Minimally invasive transforaminal endoscopic treated neurologic deficit after percutaneous kyphoplasty-a case report
It is proposed that transforaminal endoscopic surgery can provide a suitable alternative for the treatment of spinal cord and/or nerve root compression after PKP in selected cases.
Infection following percutaneous vertebral augmentation with polymethylmethacrylate
Postoperative infection and cement augmentation in preexisting spondylitis can develop into a life-threatening complication in frail patients with notable comorbidities and prompt surgical treatment should be considered in case of significant neurologic deficit, severe instability due to infected fracture, and resistance to antibiotics.
Debridement and corpectomy via single posterior approach to treat pyogenic spondylitis after vertebral augmentation
Investigation of the clinical efficacy of the treatment of pyogenic spondylitis after vertebral augmentation with Single posterior debridement, vertebral body resection, and intervertebral bone graft fusion and internal fixation found sPVRIF may be one of the effective treatments if the patient suffers from intolerable severe pain, neurological deficits, and damage to spinal stability.


Tuberculous Spondylitis after Percutaneous Vertebroplasty: Misdiagnosis or Complication?
An unusual case of tuberculous spondylitis diagnosed after percutaneous vertebroplasty in a patient who had a history of pulmonary tuberculosis for the first time is reported.
Late Onset Tuberculous Spondylitis Following Kyphoplasty: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
A 76-year-old woman with compression fracture of L1 underwent percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty using polymethyl methacrylate and found granulomatous inflammation surrounding the cement, which confirmed the diagnosis of tuberculosis.
Tuberculous Spondylitis and Paravertebral Abscess Formation After Kyphoplasty: A Case Report
Indication for kyphoplasty in patients with any history of local or systemic infection should be scrutinized rigorously, and active investigation including microbiological and histologic examination is of utmost importance to avoid any delay in correct diagnosis and specific treatment.
Spondylitis following vertebroplasty: a case report
A further case of spondylitis after vertebroplasty that was managed successfully with conservative therapy was reported, indicating that in the presented case a satisfactory result could be achieved through conservative antibiotic therapy and restriction of movement.
Surgical treatment for delayed pyogenic spondylitis after percutaneous vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. Report of 4 cases.
In cases of incapacitating back pain after a pain-free period following either of these surgeries, evaluation of the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein level and examination of contrast-enhanced MR imaging studies are essential to rule out delayed vertebral infection.
Infection after vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty. A series of nine cases and review of literature.
Spinal tuberculosis of the lumbar spine after percutaneous vertebral augmentation (vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty).
Discrimination of tuberculous spondylitis from pyogenic spondylitis on MRI.
MRI was accurate for differentiation of tuberculous sponylitis from pyogenic spondylitis.
Outcome of percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty in vertebral compression fractures.
Kyphoplasty is a safe and effective treatment for VCFs, improves physical function, reduces pain and corrects kyphotic deformity and no patients had neurological deterioration in the followup period.
