ABSTRACT

Study Design: Review of the literature. Objectives: To present updated information on percutaneous vertebral augmentation (PVA) for osteoporotic spinal fractures (OSFs). Summary of Literature Review: Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty have been used to treat osteoporotic spinal fractures for many years. A recent meta-analysis provides strong evidence in favor of cement augmentation in the treatment of symptomatic vertebral compression fractures. Materials and Methods: Review of the relevant literature. Results: A meta-analysis showed greater pain relief, functional recovery, and improvement in quality of life with cement augmentation compared with control subjects. Conclusions: Percutaneous vertebral augmentation of osteoporotic spinal fractures results in shorter hospital stays, reduced incidence of complications, and more rapid return of functional independence.
