Indications for Surgical Treatment For patients with osteoporotic VCFs, absolute indications for surgical treatment include spinal cord or cauda equina compression with neurological deficit, progressive deformity (kyphosis or scoliosis) leading to pulmonary compromise, and progressive spinal deformity resulting in an imbalance of the trunk and torso. Patients with anyone of these indications are counseled that surgical intervention is necessary to correct and reverse the damage caused by the fracture.
As previously noted, malignant spinal cord compression or substantial spinal stenosis at the level of the compressed vertebra is at the very least an important relative contraindication to PV. Although the posterior vertebral wall is usually intact in the case of osteoporotic VCF, this may not be the case with malignant lesions. The integrity of the posterior vertebral wall should be evaluated with CT before PV for malignant lesions because, if it is destroyed by tumor, there may be an increased risk of ventral epidural extravasation of cement.
4-2). A positive bone scan at the level of a VCF has been shown to be highly predictive of a positive clinical response after PV. 15 However, that study did not compare the predictive value of scintigraphy with magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. Magnetic resonance images can show characteristic changes in marrow signal that depend on the age of the fracture. 16 Acute and subacute fractures, defined as fractures 2 to 30 days old, are hypointense in signal on Tl-weighted images and hyperintense on T2-weighted and short tau inversion recovery (STIR) sequences (Fig.
