The Spine Journal, 08/09/2012
Cianfoni A et al. – Computed tomography–guided Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV) of C1 lytic lesion with posterolateral approach was effective in the described case for pain control and stabilization, and it may be a therapeutic option in selected patients to avoid occipitocervical fusion. This procedure requires good understanding of the anatomy and rigorous technique to avoid potential complications.
