Comply with-up ASIA scores: E(26), D(four), B(2) & C(1). All sufferers confirmed proof of bone sclerosis and reduction of wire compression on follow-up imaging.
CONCLUSIONS: That is largest examine in literature exhibiting wonderful enchancment, low re-operation charges following ethanol embolization and quick section fixation.
