2013 (German)In: Chirurgische Praxis, ISSN 0009-4846, Vol. 76, no 1, 63-74 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The minimally invasive procedure of kyphoplasty has become an established method of treatment in both osteoporotic compression fractures and malignant osteolytic lesions of the spine. In cautious consideration of the correct indication and technical implementation, kyphoplasty is a safe procedure with low risk of complications. In comparison to conservative treatment regimens, postoperative clinical outcome parameters have shown promising results in pain reduction and the improvement of function and quality of life in both short-term and mid-term evaluations. However, kyphoplasty as a surgical procedure shall always be considered a component within the overall therapeutic concept. Thus, a comprehensive medical attendance and the consistent treatment of the underlying disease are essential to a successful therapeutic outcome.
