A Colombian experience involving SpineJack ® , a consecutive series of patients experiencing spinal fractures, percutaneous approach and anatomical restoration 2016-2017.

BACKGROUND: Spinal fractures are becoming more frequent and should be handled as a severe and endemic pathology that requires timely diagnosis and adequate treatment. The classification of the AOSpine is currently the classification used for this type of fractures, not only for its approach, but to predict surgical management.

METHODS: These patients had spinal fracture reduction procedures done through percutaneous way with expander endovertebral implants, and intraosseous fixation using SpineJack® intravertebral implants plus Cohesion® cement. Within the follow-up scheme, subsequent measurements were taken after a week, a month after surgery, 3 months after the procedure and after 6 months of follow-up. STATA® (Statistical Analysis System, version 12.1, SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC, USA) was used for all analyzes. The Wilcoxon or Student's t -test was used for comparisons in pairs depending on the normality of the distribution.

RESULTS: A clinical follow-up is performed to 20 consecutive patients experiencing spinal compression fractures (SCF) who received percutaneous treatment involving SpineJack® and Cohesion® cement, resulting in a statistically significant decrease of both pain and pain-related disability. No complications arose from the procedure.

CONCLUSIONS: According to the observations, which reflect what is found in the world literature, this is an effective and safe way of handling SCF.
