The results from some clinical studies have been controversial. I have found very good results with vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty if you have recent fracture, back tenderness and acute to subacute (recent) swelling of your fracture on MRI and do not have back nerve or spinal cord compression or instability in the spine. Most people pain improve. Even though uncommon these procedures may have risks. Please contact Executive Spine Surgery if you have a vertebral body compression fracture. Good Luck!
