    Early-Onset Anterior Endplate Fractures of Adjacent Vertebras in Balloon Kyphoplasty and SpineJack
    Author(s): Kuan-Nien Chou, Ming-Hsuan Chung, Peng-Wei Wang and Da-Tong Ju*

    Background: Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) occur most commonly on the thoracolumbar junction, which are the most vulnerable biomechanical regiments at the thoracolumbar junction between the thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis. Percutaneous vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are currently the primary minimally invasive surgical treatments for thoracolumbar VCFs. The principal aim of this study is to compare the clinical efficacies of percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) and SpineJack® (SJ) techniques in the treatment of thoracolumbar VCFs by evaluating the risk factors for early-onset adjacent level fractures (ALFs) over a 6 month follow-up. Methods: A total of 106 patients with thoracolumbar (T11-L2) VCFs, treated with kyphoplasty techniques (64 with BKP and 42 with SJ), were enrolled in .. Read More»
