Clinical study of high viscosity bone cement in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture

Objective: This study was aimed to explore clinical effects of high viscosity bone cement in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture.

Methods: A total of 90 patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture were selected from our hospital as the study objects and were randomly divided to control group and observation group with 45 cases in each. All patients underwent PVP surgery in which the control group was treated with low viscosity bone cement while the observation group was given high viscosity bone cement, pain degree, vertebral parameters, and bone cement leakage rate of patients after treatment were observed and compared between two groups.

Results: The VAS score of the observation group was significantly lower than that of the control group and the Barthel score was significantly higher than that of the control group, P<0.05; heights of vertebral border and center of patients in the observation group were significantly higher than those in the control group and the Cobb angle was significantly less than that of the control group, P<0.05; bone cement leakage rate in the observation group was significantly lower than that in the control group, P<0.05.

Conclusion: High viscosity bone cement in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures can significantly alleviate waist pain and improve vertebral body for the patients, thus raising the life quality of patients of remarkable clinical significance.
