The principal causes of these fractures are firstly osteoporosis, followed by trauma and malignancies (mainly metastases and myeloma). Moreover, patient[...]

Findings and procedure details: In our Hospital we have used this technique to treat acute/subacute fractures (less than two months of evolution) with uncontrolled pain, in fifty patients (average age of 72,9 ± 11,6 years, and sex distribution of 34,6% males and 65,4% females) treated in the past three years (August-2012 to Septem[...]
