ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a clinical trial which shows that in patients with painful osteoporotic vertebral fractures, vertebroplasty is not effective in reducing pain and improving physical functioning. The study included 78 patients with back pain of 12 months' duration and 1 or 2 recent vertebral fractures. The results show that vertebroplasty is not effective in alleviating pain or improving quality of life more than a control intervention.
