Clinical Trails at Rush The Use of Intraoperative Image-Guided Navigation During Vertebral Kyphoplasty
Clinical Trial Protocol ID
09060504

Clinical Trial Investigator Name
John O'Toole

Clinical Trial Title

Study of the reduction in radiation exposures to patient and surgeon during vertebral kyphoplasty by the use of intraoperative image-guided navigation



Clinical Trial Protocol Description

The purpose of this study is to better understand the radiation exposures to patient and surgeon during vertebral kyphoplasty by the use of intraoperative image-guided navigation. A kyphoplasty is a procedure done to repair painful vertebral fractures using a cement-like compound. Here at Rush University Medical Center, we expect to recruit approximately 24 patients. The treatment will be assigned randomly between the imaging techniques.



Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria

You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:

  • Have one to three vertebral compression fracture(s) of either pathologic or osteoporotic nature requiring kyphoplasty

You will be excluded from this study if you:

  • Have symptomatic spinal cord compression
  • Have an inability to follow up postoperatively
  • Have greater than three vertebral compression fractures requiring treatment
  • Have additional symptomatic fractures or back pathologies not being treated

This is a partial list of eligibility requirements. To inquire about your eligibility, please call the contact number provided. If you wish to inquire via e-mail, please include the title of the study in your message.
