A novel technique for cement augmentation of pedicle screws reduces cement leakage rates. A prospective, controlled, clinical trial in osteoporotic bone

T.R. Blattert, H.J. Riesner & C. Josten
Objective: Cement augmentation techniques have been developed to increase purchase of pedicle screws in osteoporotic bone. Different augmentation techniques are being used based on screw types and surgical methods. For solid screws, vertebral bodies can be prefilled with cement in a vertebroplasty technique[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
