Direct Ethibloc injection in benign bone cysts: preliminary report on four patients

Skeletal Radiol. 1993;22(5):317-20. doi: 10.1007/BF00198389.


Benign bone cysts often require treatment in order to prevent pathological fracture. We report preliminary experience with percutaneous injection of Ethibloc in four children (8-15 years old) presenting with benign bone cysts: two were aneurysmal bone cysts, two were unicameral bone cysts. All the patients were followed up for 12-18 months. Healing was satisfactory in all cases and no complications occurred.
