Abstract

We reviewed outcomes for vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty for the surgical treatment of osteoporotic spinal fracture. Our study of 5792 vertebroplasty and 3136 balloon kyphoplasty procedures conducted in England over a 7-year period found no evidence that the patient outcomes studied were poorer for vertebroplasty than for balloon kyphoplasty.

Purpose: To investigate use, safety and functional outcomes of vertebroplasty (VP) and balloon kyphoplasty (BKP) techniques for osteoporotic spinal fracture for patients operated on within the National Health Service in England.

Methods: This was an observational analysis of administrative data. Data were extracted from the Hospital Episodes Statistics database for the period 1st April 2011 to 31st March 2018 for all VP and BKP procedures. Patients aged < 19 years, with metastatic carcinoma and undergoing other decompression procedures, were excluded. The primary outcome was repeat spinal surgery within 1 year. Secondary outcomes were 30-day emergency readmission, death within 1 year, extended hospital stay, post-procedural pain within 30 days and post-procedural haemorrhage or infection within 30 days. Multilevel, multivariable logistic regression was used to adjust for covariates.

Results: Data were available for 5792 VP and 3136 BKP patients operated on at 96 hospital trusts. In the 63 trusts that conducted more than 20 procedures during the study period, the proportion of procedures conducted as BKP varied from 0 to 100%. There was no difference in any of the outcomes between VP and BKP patients or between trusts performing ≥ 70% and ≤ 30% of procedures as BKP.

Conclusions: With regard to the outcomes studied, there is no evidence that VP is associated with poorer outcomes than BKP.
