Abstract

Both BK and PVP provided equally significant back pain relief and improvements of respiratory functions in patients affected by COPD with single level OVCFs. BK was favored in radiography, this improvement was not related to pain relief and improvement of pulmonary functions. Given much higher cost of BK, similar effectiveness and safety of BK and PVP, in COPD patients with OVCFs, PVP may be a better choice.
