Percutaneous vertebroplasty does not increase the risk of adjacent vertebral fracture—a retrospective study. Presented at the 38th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neuroradiology, Atlanta, GA, April 3, 2000. 51. Barr JD, Barr MS, Lemley TJ, McCann RM. Percutaneous vertebroplasty for pain relief and spinal stabilization. Spine 2000; 25:923–928. 52. Lyles KW, Gold DT, Shipp KM, Pieper CF, Martinez S, Mulhausen PL.

Vertebroplasty, initially an open procedure, introduced bone graft or some biomaterial, typically polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) cement, into vertebral bodies (VBs) [2–4,6–12]. Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV), a relatively new variant, is performed by injecting acrylic cement into VBs via cannulae. This procedure was reportedly first performed in 1984 to stabilize a C2 vertebra invaded by an aggressive hemangioma [13]. The successful mechanical stabilization of the VB and the resulting pain relief experienced by the patient led investigators to adapt the procedure for patients with painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures [14].

Furthermore, as treatments for primary tumors become more effective, resulting in longer periods of patient survival, the incidence of metastatic lesions increases. The spine is the most common site for metastases, and osteolytic metastases and myeloma are the most frequent malignant lesions occurring in the spine [3]. PV is being used more frequently to augment mechanically VBs compromised by lytic lesions. Accompanying the increase in the practice of PV are increases in the number of clinical investigations into the efficacy of the procedure and of basic science investigations into evaluating materials, instruments, and techniques.
