TiRobot-assisted percutaneous kyphoplasty in the management of multilevel (more than three levels) osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture

Objective Objectives: To compare TiRobot-assisted kyphoplasty with that of the more common fluoroscopy-assisted technique for treating multilevel osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. Methods In this retrospective review, we obtained data from 71 patients with multilevel osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture treated with unilateral TiRobot-assisted or fluoroscopy-assisted percutaneous kyphoplasty with unilateral conventional TiRobot-assisted percutaneous kyphoplasty. The average amount of bone cement injected in the TiRobot-assisted and fluoroscopy-assisted groups was 4. 6 mL and 4. 5 mL, respectively, according to the 257 treated vertebrae. In comparison to the operative time, the surgeon's and patient's cumulative radiation dose in the TiRobot-assisted group was much lower. According to TiRobot- and fluoroscopy-assisted groups, cement leakage was detected in 18 and 29 cases in the TiRobot- and fluoroscopy-assisted groups. Conclusions TiRobot-assisted percutaneous multilevel kyphoplasty is more accurate and has less radiometry, a more uniform bone cement delivery, and reduced bone cement leakage.

Comparison of a directional cement delivery device versus conventional device in unilateral percutaneous kyphoplasty for the therapy of osteoporotic thoracolumbar fracture in the elderly

This research aims to compare the clinical and radiological outcomes of PKP by unilateral pedicle delivery method and a directional bone cement delivery system, as well as determine the value of a directional delivery system for the treatment of thoracolumbar compression fracture in the elderly. Methods We undertook a retrospective review of patients with single-level OVCF treated with unilateral pedicle puncture PKP from Jan 2018 to Jan 2020. By X-ray and computed tomography scan, the cement leakage and bone cement distribution were determined for presentation, as well as radiation exposure, bone cement injection volume, and the incidence of bone cement leakage. Conclusion: Compared to the installation of a traditional bone cement delivery system, the operative time, radiation exposure time, and the incidence of bone cement leakage are all safe and effective.
