AbstractOf 91 patients included, 65 (71%) underwent open surgery and 26 (29%) underwent PPI. Open patients had 11° (95% CI, 9°-13°) of immediate correction compared with 11° (95% CI, 6°-15°) for PPI (P = 0.81). Follow-up data were available for 70 patients with a median of 105.5 days. Both groups had 1° (95% CI, 0°-2°) of loss of correction at follow-up (P = 0.82). Regardless of surgical technique, obesity (>30 kg/m2) and AO type-A compression fractures had significantly less correction. For each unit of body mass index, there was a 0.75° decrease in correction achieved (P < 0.0001). Other factors did not influence the degree of correction.
