This study collects data on the use of radiofrequency ablation and cement augmentation for the treatment of cancer that has spread to the spine (metastases to the spine). Radiofrequency ablation with cement augmentation is a useful approach for the treatment of secondary metastasis to the spine. Information collected in this study may help doctors to learn the effectiveness of this therapy, and may help to evaluate optimal technique, appropriate patient selection, and management of complications.
