Outcomes of Fluoroscopic Guided Percutaneous Transpedicular Vertebral Biopsy
Abstract: Objective: To quantify the results and outcomes of fluoroscopic guided percutaneous transpedicular biopsy of vertebral lesions in our centre. Methods: Retrospective analysis of data collected from consecutive cases of transpedicular biopsy performed in our centre spanning a period of 13 months. Results: We identified 30 patients with complete data who underwent the procedure. We obtained a positive diagnosis in 90% of our patients. Conclusions: Fluroscopic guided transpedicular vertebral biopsy remains a safe and reliable first line method of obtaining a tissue sample in achieving a diagnosis for vertebral lesions.
