Abstract

The authors studied 20 patients with vertebral metastases. They injected in these metastases orthopaedic cement by a percutaneous technique under local anesthesis. The results are good for 16 patients, nul for 2 patients and we observed 2 complications. The authors conclude that the best indication is the painy somatic lysis of a vertebra without peri-radicular tumor.
