Abstract: Think twice before recommending vertebroplasty (VP) for symptomatic osteoporotic compression fractures. New studies suggest that it has little benefit; thus, VP should be considered only after other, more conservative options fail. Strength of Recommendation: A: Consistent, high-quality randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
