The effect of vertebroplasty was studied on intact but likely weakened bone. The difference between displaced volumes and measured volumes was found to range from -11% to +30%. It was found that 20% fill will result in a significant increase in compressive strength. The results showed that some of the overflow could be attributed to damage to the surface of the vertebra incurred during removal of soft tissue.
