Percutaneous vertebroplasty and percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral fractures: a systematic review and cost-effectiveness analysis

Study found that for people with painful osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures refractory to analgesic treatment, percutaneous vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty significantly reduce pain and improve quality of life compared with optimal pain management. However, there is no evidence that either performs better than operative placebo with local anaesthetic. Complications from either procedure are rare but can be serious. Further research is needed to establish whether or not either procedure has a mortality advantage over or utility gain compared with operative placebo with local anaesthetic.

Low-energy extracorporeal shock wave therapy: a critical analysis of the evidence for effectiveness in the treatment of plantar fasciitis

This poorly conducted and reported review concluded that there is only limited evidence to suggest that extracorporeal shock wave therapy is effective for the treatment of plantar fasciitis in the general population, and that further research is necessary. The conclusions should be interpreted with caution due to limitations with the review, especially in relation to the inclusion criteria and literature search.
