Abstract

BACKGROUND: Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty are minimally invasive techniques used to treat vertebral compression fractures. The etiology of vertebral compression fractures varies among patients. Although osteoporosis and trauma are major etiologic factors in patients with a vertebral compression fracture, unexpected results were found in 11 patients in the present study. The aim of the present retrospective study was to determine the incidentally detected pathology results of patients with vertebral fracture treated by vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty.
