Answer

Surgical care includes vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, which are minimally invasive spine procedures used for the management of painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. However, there may be an increased risk of fractures involving adjacent vertebrae after these procedures. [127, 128]
