Vertebral compression fracture
Vertebral Compression Fractures (VCFs) are cracks in the vertebral body that often occur due to osteoporosis and low bone density in old patients. However, they can also be caused by trauma, tumor or other bone diseases.
Burst fractures are a type of traumatic spinal injury in which a vertebra breaks due to a high-energy axial load. This happens for example in traffic collisions, falls from a great height and some types of seizures. Moreover, a burst fracture can lead to shards of vertebra penetrating surrounding tissues and sometimes the spinal canal.

Yearly, more than 1.5 million people suffer from vertebral fractures. A vertebral fracture is a life threatening disease and causes severe back pain, limited mobility, height loss and several other issues.
65% of the vertebral fractures patients experience serious side-effects with existing treatments. Some of these effects are caused by the injection of PMMA bone cement into the vertebra.
Higher morbidity levels were reported in patients treated with non-surgical VCF methods when compared to patients that are treated surgically (also depending on the method).
