Introduction: Vertebroplasty (VP) and ballon kyphoplasty (BKP) are used in the treatment of the vertebral compression fractures (VCF), that usually result in a typical wedged deformation. It is still under debate which technique is the best, in terms of efficacy, costs, and safety, mainly about the risk of a adjacent new fractures. The aim of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical outcome of vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty by a computational comparative analysis with finit...
