Study Suggests Vertebroplasty Delivers More Cement Into Vertebrae Than Kyphoplasty

A larger volume of high-viscosity cement can be injected into vertebral analogs with simulated compression fractures before cement leakage with vertebroplasty than with kyphoplasty, suggests a new study.

Researchers used 40 artificial vertebral analogs made of polyurethane (Sawbones, Pacific Research Laboratories) as a model of osteoporotic L3 vertebrae with compression fracture.

Intra aortic balloon pump in the treatment of acute myocardial infarction complicated with cardiac shock

In the current international general guidelines, intra aortic balloon pump is considered to be the 1 stage of acute myocardial infarction in patients with acute myocardial infarction. However, evidence supporting this theory is only based on the registration data, but also the lack of randomized clinical trials to confirm.

Knee long segment occlusion: drug-eluting stents than with paclitaxel-coated balloon

Drug-eluting stents (drug-eluting stents, DES) for below-knee arterial lesions and shorter long been clear, and for a long period knee artery disease, growing evidence supports the use of paclitaxel-coated balloon (paclitaxel-coated balloons , PCB) treatment.

To this end, researchers from Greece and the United Kingdom conducted a study called IDEAS. The results showed that, compared with the PCB, DES in the treatment of long below-knee arterial disease, postoperative residual stenosis less, six months after the reduction was also significantly better than the PCB vascular stenosis, article published in September this year in JACC.
