The list below includes all known sites where Vertebroplasty is performed and the status of their ethics and governance committee applications.

If you perform vertebroplasty at one of these sites, but have not registered with the IRSA secretariat, please email to have a Registry link set up so you can commence inputting the patient data required. If your site is not listed, please email the secretariat who will arrange for ethics and governance approval to be sought. Please note, you may commence utilising the Medicare Number prior to Registry access, however we request that keep a log of procedures, recording these 5 simple data points:

  1. Patient name and gender
  2. Name of provider, centre and state where performed
  3. Duration of fracture before the procedure
  4. Inpatient/Outpatient status at the date the decision was made to perform the procedure
  5. Adverse affects related to vertebroplasty, requiring additional hospitalisation or additional medical treatment
  6. Opt-out rate of prospective registry participants ( please note if your patient failed to agree to participate, but do not include their data as above)
