Objectives: The mechanism underlying the pain relief observed following balloon kyphopasty (BKP) to vertebral compression fractures is reported to involve stabilization of the fractured vertebrae. However, if fixation of the vertebrae was achieved immediately after BKP has not been investigated. The purpose of this study was to assess fixation of the vertebrae immediately after BKP, and whether the instability related visual analog scale (VAS).
Method: Thirty-eight patients with vertebrae that were evaluated on lateral roentgenkymography within one week after BKP were recruited. Instability was defined as a cleft was observed between the cement and endplate of the vertebra in the supine position that disappeared in the sitting position, and the posterior wall height of the vertebra was reduced in the sitting position.
Results: Instability of the vertebrae immediately after BKP was observed in 17 cases. VAS scores improved in all cases, and no significant differences were observed with or without instability.
Conclusions: The mechanism of rapidly pain relief following BKP was not strong fixation but some degree of stabilization or other factors. We suggest that more research is needed about the mechanism of pain relief following BKP in the future.

Tarukado Kiyoshi, Ko Ikuta, Osamu Tono, Toshio Doi, Spontaneous regression of posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments: case series, The Spine Journal, 2013.09, BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments is an extremely rare disorder. Surgical treatment was performed in all reported cases. To the best of our knowledge, there are no reported cases of the use of conservative treatment for posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments.
PURPOSE: To report the possibility of a spontaneous regression of posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments.
STUDY DESIGN: Case series.
METHODS: Four patients with posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments were treated at Karatsu Red Cross Hospital between April 2008 and August 2010. Spontaneous regression of the posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments with relief of symptoms was observed on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in three cases. Another patient underwent surgical treatment. The present and previously reported cases of posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments were analyzed with respect to patient age, imaging features on MRI, the level of the lesion, clinical symptoms, treatment, and outcomes.
RESULTS: Conservative treatment was successful, and spontaneous lesion regression was seen on MRI with symptom relief in three cases.
CONCLUSIONS: Although posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragment cases are generally treated surgically, the condition can regress spontaneously over time, as do sequestrated disc fragments. Spontaneous regression of lumbar disc herniations is a widely accepted observation at present. Posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments fall under the sequestrated type of disc herniation. In fact, the course of treatment for posterior epidural migrated lumbar disc fragments should be determined based on the symptoms and examination findings, as in cases of ordinary herniation. However, providing early surgical treatment is important if the patient has acute cauda equina syndrome or the neurologic symptoms worsen over time..
