Vertebroplasty and conventional kyphoplasty using a balloon or a stent are established methods for the treatment of painful osteoporotic or neoplastic vertebral compression fractures that are resistant to conservative medical treatment. Radiofrequency (RF) kyphoplasty with ultra-high viscosity cement is an innovative method. It permits safe and effective treatment of painful osteoporotic and neoplastic vertebral compression fractures while preserving non-compromised cancellous bone.
