STUDY DESIGN Ex vivo biomechanical study using osteoporotic cadaveric fractured vertebral bodies. OBJECTIVE To investigate the behavior of fractured osteoporotic vertebral bodies treated with either vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty under repetitive loading conditions. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are newer alternatives for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral fractures. Loading conditions that can lead to fractures treated with these methods will likely be… CONTINUE READING
