Percutaneous vertebroplasty for osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures

Abstract

The Authors present a retrospective review of 59 consecutive patients who underwent polymethylmethacrylate percutaneous vertebroplasty for vertebral compression fractures due to osteoporosis. In the immediate post-operative follow-up a significant pain relief was found in 39 patients (66.1%), moderate pain relief in 17 patients (28.8%), while 3 patients (5.1%) did not achieve relevant pain improvement. Percutaneous vertebroplasty resulted to be an effective and safe procedure for treating vertebral compression fractures in the elderly.
