Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) result from trauma or pathologic weakening of the bone and are associated with conditions such as osteoporosis or malignancy. Worldwide, VCFs impact one in three women and one in eight men aged 50 and older, with more than 8.9 million fractures incurred annually. Copublished by Thieme and the Society of Interventional Radiology, Vertebral Augmentation: The Comprehensive Guide to Vertebroplasty, Kyphoplasty, and Implant Augmentation provides a practical, clinical discussion of these minimally invasive spine interventions.
Written and edited by Douglas Beall along with associate editors Allan Brook, M. R. Chambers, Joshua Hirsch, Alexios Kelekis, Yong-Chul Kim, Scott Kreiner, and Kieran Murphy, this richly illustrated book presents a multidisciplinary and international perspective. It features contributions from renowned experts in interventional radiology, neurosurgery, pain medicine, and physiatry. This resource fills a gap in the literature, with extensive updates on a vast amount of new information and techniques that have been introduced during the past decade. Thirty-five chapters address treatment of spine fractures, starting with a history and introduction to vertebral augmentation, discussion of VCFs, patient assessments, physical exam findings, pain management, and much more.
