Introduction: This study aimed to evaluate long-term stabilizing healing effectiveness and influence on adjacent intact vertebral bodies of a new injectable partly resorbable calcium sulfate 60 wt. Methods: From April to April , 80 patients underwent vertebral augmentation. Patient enrolment criteria are as follows: age more than 20 years; symptomatic osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture from low energy trauma encompassing level T5 to L1 and classified as A1. Preoperative and postoperative imaging studies consisted of computed tomography, plain X-ray, dual X-ray absorptiometry scanning, and magnetic resonance. Pain intensity has been evaluated by an point visual analog scale VAS , and physical and quality of life compromise assessments have been evaluated by Oswestry Disability Questionnaire ODI.

Metrics details. Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures VCFs are commonly observed in elderly people and can be treated by conservatively with minimal risk of complications in most cases. However, utilization of direct oral anticoagulants DOACs increases the risks of secondary hematoma even after insignificant trauma. The use of DOACs increased over the past decade because of their approval and recommendation for both stroke prevention in non-valvular atrial fibrillation and treatment of venous thromboembolism.
Long Term Effects Of Thoracic Compression Fractures
Background: Osteoporosis has become an important issue owing to the increasing elderly population. It is the most common cause of vertebral compression fracture. Conservative treatment is often ineffective, whereas surgical treatment has a vital role in compression fracture. Vesselplasty is a new surgical alternative to traditional vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty. It uses a polyethylene terephthalate balloon that functions as both a vertebral body expander and a bone cement container.
Your health and safety is our top priority. Depending on where the fracture occurs, you could develop a condition called kyphosis, where the shape of your spine becomes deformed, giving you a humped, hunched-over appearance.
