Clinical Outcomes And Safety Comparison Of Vertebroplasty, Balloon Kyphoplasty, And Vertebral Implant For Treatment Of Vertebral Compression Fractures – Balloon Kyphoplasty

Balloon Kyphoplasty

The article compares the clinical and patient-reported outcomes of three surgical interventions for vertebral compression fracture: balloon kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty, and the SpineJack vertebral implant. The study found that all three procedures significantly improved pain scores, but the SpineJack vertebral implant had a greater improvement in “worst pain” compared to the other two procedures. Patients with the SpineJack implant also had greater improvement in vertebral body height restoration and local kyphotic angle. The study concludes that the SpineJack implant is a safe and effective alternative for vertebral augmentation, particularly for patients with moderate-to-severe vertebral compression fractures

CONCLUSIONS: The SpineJack vertebral implant showed equivalent pain improvement compared with vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, but it had superior vertebral body height restoration and local kyphotic angle improvement. This study supports the SpineJack vertebral implant as a safe and effective alternative (adjunct) for vertebral augmentation, especially in patients with moderate-to-severe vertebral compression fractures for greater improvement in vertebral body height restoration.

Abstract

Background and purpose: Vertebral compression fracture represents a major health burden for the aging populations globally. However, limited studies exist on the relative efficacy and safety of surgical interventions for vertebral compression fracture. Here, we aim to compare clinical and patient-reported outcomes following vertebral augmentation using balloon kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty, and SpineJack vertebral implant.

Materials and methods: An institutional review board-approved, retrospective, multi-institutional review of patients undergoing vertebral augmentation with kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty, and/or a SpineJack vertebral implant was performed between 2018 and 2021. Primary outcomes included pre- and postprocedural pain ratings and vertebral body height restoration. The secondary outcome was a change in the local kyphotic angle. The Kruskal-Wallis test was used to compare outcomes across 3 treatment options. Complications were reviewed during and 30-90 days after the procedure.

Results: Vertebral augmentation of 344 vertebral compression fracture levels was performed during the study period. Sixty-seven patients had 79 kyphoplasty procedures (55% women; mean age, 64.2 [SD, 12.3] years). Seventy-four patients underwent a mean of 84 vertebroplasty procedures (51% women; mean age, 63.5 [SD, 12.8] years), and 61 patients had a mean of 67 SpineJack vertebral implant procedures (57.4% women; mean age, 68.3 [SD, 10.6] years). Following kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty, and SpineJack vertebral implant, pain scores improved significantly (P < .001). Resting pain improvement was similar across the 3 procedures, whereas improvement of "worst pain" was significantly better following a SpineJack vertebral implant compared with kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty (P < .001). Patients with a SpineJack vertebral implant had greater improvement in vertebral body height restoration and local kyphotic angle compared with those undergoing kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty. Adjacent level fractures (6.7% incidence) occurred similarly in the 3 procedure types. There were no other peri- or postoperative complications.

Conclusions: The SpineJack vertebral implant showed equivalent pain improvement compared with vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, but it had superior vertebral body height restoration and local kyphotic angle improvement. This study supports the SpineJack vertebral implant as a safe and effective alternative (adjunct) for vertebral augmentation, especially in patients with moderate-to-severe vertebral compression fractures for greater improvement in vertebral body height restoration.
