Abstract

From April 1998 to January 2000 we treated 14 patients with vertebral osteoporotic compression fractures and intraosseous vacuum phenomenon with intracorporal bone grafting using a mixture of autogenous bone graft and calcium sulfate and posterior instrumentation. The mixture was packed into the fractured vertebral body through two tunnels created in the pedicles. Eleven patients were followed for a minimum of 24 months. All vertebral bodies healed. There were no perioperative complications. The average vertebral height restoration was 31%. On the visual analogue scale, there was an improvement of average 37 clinical scores.
