Mayo doctors are conducting clinical trials of an alternative material for stabilizing compression fractures. Mayo researchers also are working to classify the types and age of fractures that are best treated by vertebroplasty as well as studying long-term results of the procedure.
Scientists in the Biomechanics Laboratory are active in a number of areas of spine research.
See a list of publications by Mayo authors on vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
