(European VErtebroplasty RESearch Team) group. The main topics are the treatments of hemangioma and malignant lesions, technically challenging cases such as vertebra plana, multifragmented fractures, multilevel treatments, refracture of augmented vertebra, and treatment of cervical junction and sacrum.
