Objective: This study aims to discuss the clinical effect of balloon kyphoplasty on elderly patients with multiple osteoporotic vertebral fractures. Methods: The observation group was treated with balloon kyphoplasty, and the control group was managed with conservative treatment. Image indices, pain degree, daily life disturbance, and occurrences of complications were compared between the two groups. Results: In total, 116 elderly patients with multiple osteoporotic vertebral fracture admitted in our hospital from January 2016 to June 2017 were chosen and divided randomly into observation (n = 58) and control groups (n = 58). The observation group showed a significantly higher trailing edge, leading edge, and midcourt line and larger upper thoracic kyphosis compared with the control group (P < 0.05). Before the treatment, no statistically significant differences were observed between the two groups in terms of visual analog scale (VAS) score and daily life disturbance score (P > 0.05). However, the VAS score and the daily life disturbance score of the two groups decreased sharply after the treatment (P < 0.05). Moreover, the VAS score and the daily life disturbance score of the observation group were significantly lower than those of the control group (P < 0.05). The observation group showed lower occurrence rate of complications compared with the control group (P < 0.05). Conclusions: Balloon kyphoplasty can significantly improve the image indices of patients with multiple osteoporotic vertebral fractures and relieve their pain degree and daily life disturbance. Balloon kyphoplasty exhibited a low occurrence rate of complications and high safety and is, thus, worthy of clinical applications.
