Objective To investigate whether bone union is achieved in osteoporotic vertebral fracture (OVF) patients who undergo balloon kyphoplasty (BKP). Methods Thirty-six vertebrae, which were followed-up for more than two years after BKP, were evaluated in the present study. Bone union was assessed by using CT scans and lateral X-ray films obtained in the sitting and supine positions. Results Twenty-seven vertebrae exhibited bone union at the final follow-up. The VAS scores improved in all cases. Conclusions Unstable vertebrae after treatment may develop complications; thus special attention should be paid to the treated vertebrae until bone union has been achieved.
