Purpose: Our aim was to evaluate patient centred outcomes of patients with compression fractures treated by vertebroplasty. Methods: Patients with compression fractures treated by vertebroplasty procedure between 2013- 2016 was examined with a 3-question through telephone call. Results: Fifty-two patients completed the telephone satisfaction survey. Of these, 92.5 % of answerers said the procedure was acceptable, 86.5% had full or partial pain remission and 78.8 % would have the procedure again. Conclusions: The use of vertebroplasty is supported by randomized trials in osteoporotic and malignant compression fractures. To the results of our study, patients believe vertebroplasty is a tolerable procedure that produces full or partial pain remission and would try the same procedure again if needed.
