Cement leakage: safety of minimally invasive surgical techniques in the treatment of multiple myeloma vertebral lesions
European Spine Journal, 03/21/2012
La Maida GA et al. – kyphoplasty (KP) procedure in these patients is slightly less risky but the authors suggest doing it with a monopedicular approach. It’s mandatory to use an high viscosity cement and the authors suggest not to use an amount of PMMA over 2 cc and a previous treatment with bone marrow transplant is related to a lower risk of cement leakage.
