Vertebral hemangioma late results of retrograde embolization--stabilization with methyl methacrylate in two cases

Surg Neurol. 1993 Dec;40(6):491-4. doi: 10.1016/0090-3019(93)90052-3.


In two cases of hemangioma of the D7 and L1 vertebral bodies intraoperative posterior filling of the angioma was described. The technique allowed a conveniently bloodless operation, which resulted in stabilization. No other stabilization was necessary. Six months after the procedure an increase of vertebral body density was seen radiologically.
