Association of polymorphism at the type I collagen (COL1A1) locus with reduced bone mineral density, increased fracture risk, and increased collagen turnover. (1/1243)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between a common polymorphism within intron 1 of the COL1A1 gene and osteoporosis in a nested case-control study. METHODS: We studied 185 healthy women (mean +/- SD age 54.3+/-4.6 years). Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured using dual x-ray absorptiometry, and fractures were determined radiographically. The COL1A1 genotype was assessed using the polymerase chain reaction and Bal I endonuclease digestion. RESULTS: Genotype frequencies were similar to those previously observed and in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium: SS 61.1%, Ss 36.2%, and ss 2.7%. Carriage of at least one copy of the "s" allele was associated with a significant reduction in lumbar spine BMD (P = 0.02) and an increased risk of total fracture (P = 0.04). Urinary pyridinoline levels were significantly elevated in those with the risk allele (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: These data support the findings that the COL1A1 gene polymorphism is associated with low BMD and fracture risk, and suggest a possible physiologic effect on total body turnover of type I collagen.  (+info)

Intraoperative ultrasonography evaluation of posterior vertebral wall displacement in thoracolumbar fractures. (2/1243)

Intraoperative ultrasonography (IOUS) was used to evaluate the location and compressive effects of intraspinal fragments in thoracolumbar fractures and the efficacy of reduction maneuvers in patients operated on for isolated or attached intraspinal fragments or for global posterior wall disruption. Dynamic IOUS was used to evaluate the effects of traction and lordosis. Fifty-eight patients were evaluated using a 7.5 MHz ultrasound probe, including 27 treated by impaction, 19 by removal of apparently isolated fragments, and 12 by traction followed by lordosis for global posterior wall disruption. IOUS had limitations and problems caused by split fragments and residual pedicular attachments that can compromise intraoperative maneuvers. The risk of secondary displacement of isolated fragments treated by impaction was very high. In particular, the pinching effect produced by T-shaped fractures was commonly responsible for secondary displacement. IOUS evaluation of canal clearance after fragment removal was satisfactory, but did not provide quantitative data. IOUS was easier to perform and apparently more reliable than intraoperative myelography. The dynamic IOUS data suggest that, except for severely tilted fragments that are completely free or remain attached to a pedicle, residual discal attachments significantly influence the likelihood of successful reduction.  (+info)

Pathological fracture of a lumbar vertebra caused by rheumatoid arthritis--a case report. (3/1243)

We describe a case of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with collapse of the L3 lumbar vertebra for which surgery was performed. The pathogenesis of lumbar lesions affected by RA is discussed and the literature reviewed.  (+info)

Exposure of medical personnel to methylmethacrylate vapor during percutaneous vertebroplasty. (4/1243)

The occupational exposure to methylmethacrylate (MMA) vapor during percutaneous vertebroplasty was determined. During five vertebroplasty procedures, air-sampling pumps were attached to medical personnel. MMA vapor levels in the samples were then quantified using gas chromatography. The samples collected yielded MMA vapor levels of less than five parts per million (ppm). The MMA vapor concentrations measured were well below the recommended maximum exposure of 100 ppm over the course of an 8-hour workday.  (+info)

A high incidence of vertebral fracture in women with breast cancer. (5/1243)

Because treatment for breast cancer may adversely affect skeletal metabolism, we investigated vertebral fracture risk in women with non-metastatic breast cancer. The prevalence of vertebral fracture was similar in women at the time of first diagnosis to that in an age-matched sample of the general population. The incidence of vertebral fracture, however, was nearly five times greater than normal in women from the time of first diagnosis [odds ratio (OR), 4.7; 95% confidence interval (95% CI), 2.3-9.9], and 20-fold higher in women with soft-tissue metastases without evidence of skeletal metastases (OR, 22.7; 95% CI, 9.1-57.1). We conclude that vertebral fracture risk is markedly increased in women with breast cancer.  (+info)

Effect of calcitonin on vertebral and other fractures. (6/1243)

We examined the incidence of vertebral and non-vertebral fractures in published randomised clinical trials using calcitonin by parenteral injection or intranasal spray. Trials were reviewed that compared calcitonin with placebo, no therapy, or calcium with or without vitamin D, and that mentioned fracture as an outcome. Studies that compared the effect of calcitonin with other active treatments were excluded. Fourteen trials with 1309 men and women were identified. In the calcitonin and the control groups, vertebral and non-vertebral fractures were summed and divided by the number of individuals originally allocated to the treatment groups. The relative risk of any fracture for individuals taking calcitonin versus those not taking calcitonin was 0.43 (95% CI 0.38-0.50). The effect was apparent for both vertebral fracture (RR 0.45; 95% CI 0.39-0.53) and non-vertebral fractures (RR 0.34; 95% CI 0.17-0.68). When studies identifying patients with fracture, rather than numbers of fractures were pooled, the magnitude of effect was less (RR 0.74; 95% CI 0.60-0.93), and the separate effects on vertebral and non-vertebral fractures was of borderline significance. We conclude that, within the limitations of this study, treatment with calcitonin is associated with a significant decrease in the number of vertebral and non-vertebral fractures.  (+info)

Reducing the cervical flexion tear-drop fracture with a posterior approach and plating technique: an original method. (7/1243)

Flexion tear-drop fractures (FTDF) in the cervical spine constitute a highly unstable condition with a high incidence of neurological complications due to posterior displacement of the fractured vertebra in the spinal canal. The widely accepted surgical management for this condition includes complete excision and grafting of the vertebral body through an anterior approach. Thorough radiological and CT analysis of FTDF shows that the vertebral body is often separated into two parts by a sagittal plane fracture, but remains continuous through the pedicle and anterior arch of the vertebral foramen with the lateral mass and the articular processes. We therefore hypothesized that reduction would be possible by acting on the articular process through a posterior approach with a particular plating technique. Eight patients with FTDF were operated on with the technique we describe. Three had complete tetraplegia, four had incomplete tetraplegia and one was normal. A preoperative CT scan was made in all patients. Local kyphosis, posterior displacement of the vertebral body, and general lordosis in the cervical spine were recorded. In all cases, a satisfactory reduction was achieved on the postoperative radiographs and at the mean follow-up of 18.6+/-12.1 months, with residual posterior displacement being less than 1 mm. No complication occurred. Out of seven neurologically impaired patients, five showed some motor recovery at the latest follow-up. The posterior technique is described, and the rationale and pros and cons are discussed. The study showed that posterior reduction and fixation of flexion tear-drop fracture is not only possible, but permits an accurate restoration of the anatomy of the fractured cervical spine.  (+info)

MR imaging for early complications of transpedicular screw fixation. (8/1243)

This series comprises ten patients treated with transpedicular screw fixation, who suffered early postoperative problems such as radicular pain or motor weakness. Besides plain radiographs, all patients were also evaluated with MR imaging. Three patients were reoperated for either repositioning or removal of the screws. MR images, especially T1-weighted ones, were very helpful for visualizing the problem and verifying the positions of the screws. In cases of wide areas of signal void around the screws, the neighboring axial MR images at either side, which have fewer artifacts, gave more information about the screws and the vertebrae.  (+info)

Prior to enrolling patients randomization-envelopes are constructed in blocks of 20. Upon obtaining informed consent, a study-number is assigned to each patient. The final randomization for each patient, takes place in the operation room upon opening the sealed envelope deciding which ...
Previous prospective cohort studies have shown that serum levels of sex steroids and sex hormone‐binding globulin (SHBG) associate with nonvertebral fracture risk in men. The predictive value of sex hormones and SHBG for vertebral fracture risk specifically is, however, less studied. Elderly men (aged ≥65 years) from Sweden and Hong Kong participating in the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) study had baseline estradiol and testosterone analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC‐MS) and SHBG by immunoradiometric assay (IRMA). Incident clinical vertebral fractures (n = 242 cases) were evaluated in 4324 men during an average follow‐up of 9.1 years. In a subsample of these men (n = 2256), spine X‐rays were obtained at baseline and after an average follow‐up of 4.3 years to identify incident radiographic vertebral fractures (n = 157 cases). The likelihood of incident clinical and radiographic vertebral fractures was estimated by Cox proportional hazards models and logistic ...
Vertebral fracture is usually the first osteoporotic fracture to occur and also the most common osteoporotic fracture, being present in 15% of women aged 50-59 years. Despite the clear clinical importance of vertebral fractures, they remain underdiagnosed in clinical practice. Good technique in performing spinal radiographs and a high level of observer experience in image interpretation are key to the reliable diagnosis of vertebral fractures. Vertebral fracture assessment (VFA) is being utilized increasingly for vertebral fracture identification. Density and structural parameters obtained by volumetric quantitative computed tomography (vQCT) can predict vertebral compressive strength ex vivo, and these parameters, together with nonlinear finite element analysis (FEA) can also be applicable in vivo. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can detect minor acute or subacute vertebral fracture or re-fracture, determine fracture age, and distinguish between osteoporotic and neoplastic fracture with ...
The vertebral column is the most common site of osteoporotic fractures in long-term users of glucocorticoids. Vertebral fracture leads to significant morbidities such as unrelenting pain, spinal deformities and reduced mobility, leading to diminished quality of life. Epidemiological data on the prevalence of glucocorticoid-induced vertebral fractures are limited. As vertebral fracture is a strong risk factor for further fragility fractures and mortality, it should be treated appropriately. This article reviews recent data on the prevalence of vertebral fractures in glucocorticoid users, fracture risk stratification, and evidence-based treatment options. The risk of osteoporotic fractures estimated by FRAX should be adjusted for glucocorticoid users. The first-line treatment of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis remains the bisphosphonates. Teriparatide and denosumab are alternative options. Percutaneous vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty may be considered for symptomatic control of acute vertebral ...

Our purpose was to evaluate the diagnostic value of three-dimensional (3 D) CT surface reconstruction in spinal fractures in comparison with axial and reformatted images. A total of 50 patients with different CT-proven spinal fractures were analysed retrospectively. Based on axial scans and reformatted images, the spinal fractures were classified according to several classifications as Magerl for the thoraco-lumbar and lower cervical spine by one radiologist. Another radiologist performed 3 D CT surface reconstructions with the aim of characterizing the different types of spinal fractures. A third radiologist classified the 3 D CT surface reconstruction according to the Magerl classification. The results of the blinded reading process were compared. It was checked to see in which type and subgroup 3 D surface reconstructions were helpful. Readers one and two obtained the same results in the classification. The 3 D surface reconstruction did not yield any additional diagnostic information concerning type
Vertebral fracture risk is a heritable complex trait. The aim of this study was to identify genetic susceptibility factors for osteoporotic vertebral fracture applying a genome-wide association study (GWAS) approach. The GWAS discovery was based on the Rotterdam Study, a population-based study of elderly Dutch individuals aged ,55 years; and comprising 329 cases and 2666 controls with radiographic scoring (McCloskey-Kanis) and genetic data. Replication of one top-associated SNP was pursued by de-novo genotyping of 15 independent studies across Europe, the United States, and Australia and one Asian study. Radiographic vertebral fracture assessment was performed using McCloskey-Kanis or Genant semi-quantitative definitions. SNPs were analyzed in relation to vertebral fracture using logistic regression models corrected for age and sex. Fixed effects inverse variance and Han-Eskin alternative random effects meta-analyses were applied. Genome-wide significance was set at p,5 x 10(-8). In the ...

A prospective study was designed to determine whether posterior instrumentation of the spine in thoracolumbar and lumbar burst fractures produces indirect decompression of the spinal canal leading to better remodeling and neurological recovery. The study was conducted in Kasturba Medical College Manipal, India. Sixty-eight consecutive cases of thoracolumbar and lumbar burst fractures were treated by posterior instrumentation, and approval from the hospital ethical committee was obtained. The degree of initial spinal canal compromise, indirect decompression, and remodeling were assessed from the computed tomography scans. The neurological status at the time of presentation and at final follow-upwas assessed by the American Spinal Injury Associations modified Frankels grading. The median canal compromise in patients with and without neurological deficit was 47.32 and 39.33%, respectively. The overall mean canal compromise at the time of admission, post-operative, and final follow-up were 47.37, ...
Vertebral fractures are common among postmenopausal women with glucocorticoid-induced bone loss. Midline (end-plate), anterior wedge, and crush fractures are the most common morphometric types of vertebral fractures. We found that BMD of the lumbar spine as measured by QCT was a significant predictor of prevalent vertebral fractures, whereas the posteroanterior DXA was unable to discriminate between the fracture and nonfracture groups. While some studies have shown that the underlying rheumatic disease itself can significantly increase the risk of vertebral fractures independently of glucocorticoid use (14), the distribution of these diseases was similar in both the fracture and nonfracture groups.. Lumbar spine posteroanterior DXA is commonly used to measure bone mass, diagnose osteoporosis, and predict the risk of vertebral fractures (5, 6). While some studies have demonstrated a significant correlation between lumbar spine DXA and prevalent vertebral compression fractures in postmenopausal ...
INTRODUCTION: Vertebral fracture is a strong risk factor for future spine and hip fractures; yet recent data suggest that only 5-20% of subjects with a spine fracture are identified in primary care. We aimed to develop easily applicable algorithms predicting a high risk of future spine fracture in men and women over 50 years of age. METHODS: Data was analysed from 5,561 men and women aged 50+ years participating in the European Prospective Osteoporosis Study (EPOS). Lateral thoracic and lumbar spine radiographs were taken at baseline and at an average of 3.8 years later. These were evaluated by an experienced radiologist. The risk of a new (incident) vertebral fracture was modelled as a function of age, number of prevalent vertebral fractures, height loss, sex and other fracture history reported by the subject, including limb fractures occurring between X-rays. Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curves were used to compare the predictive ability of models. RESULTS: In a negative binomial regression
Osteoporotic vertebral fractures represent an important health burden in the Western world, in particular given the aging population demographics of most Western countries. At present, the treatment options for osteoporotic vertebral fractures are limited, and often conservative, relying on medical pain management. Transpedicular spinal interventional techniques such as vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty offer a minimally invasive treatment option for osteoporotic vertebral fractures. However, there has been recent controversy regarding the efficacy of vertebroplasty for pain relief. Although these percutaneous techniques continue to be used and developed, there is no consensus on the pre-clinical testing of new instruments and cements. Human cadaveric vertebrae are expensive and of limited availability, and animal vertebrae offer a more easily accessible alternative, but there is no agreement within the literature as to which species best approximates the human. This thesis explores the currently ...
Vertebral fractures may be minor or lead to pain, decreased physical function, immobility, social isolation and depression, which together contribute to quality of life. A Working Party of the European Foundation for Osteoporosis has developed a specific questionnaire for patients with vertebral fractures. This questionnaire, QUALEFFO, includes questions in the domains pain, physical function, social function, general health perception and mental function. QUALEFFO was validated in a multicenter study in seven countries. The study was done in 159 patients aged 55-80 years with clinical osteoporosis, i.e., back pain and other complaints with at least one vertebral fracture and lumbar bone mineral density T-score |-1. Patients with a recent vertebral fracture were excluded because of unstable disease. Controls were age- and sex-matched, and did not have chronic back pain or vertebral fractures. Subjects with conditions exerting a major influence on quality of life were excluded. The QUALEFFO was
Denosumab reduces bone resorption and vertebral and nonvertebral fracture risk. Denosumab discontinuation increases bone turnover markers 3 months after a scheduled dose is omitted, reaching above-baseline levels by 6 months, and decreases bone mineral density (BMD) to baseline levels by 12 months. We analyzed the risk of new or worsening vertebral fractures, especially multiple vertebral fractures, in participants who discontinued denosumab during the FREEDOM study or its Extension. Participants received ≥2 doses of denosumab or placebo Q6M, discontinued treatment, and stayed in the study ≥7 months after the last dose. Of 1001 participants who discontinued denosumab during FREEDOM or Extension, the vertebral fracture rate increased from 1.2 per 100 participant-years during the on-treatment period to 7.1, similar to participants who received and then discontinued placebo (n = 470; 8.5 per 100 participant-years). Among participants with ≥1 off-treatment vertebral fracture, the proportion ...

A study by Leslie WD of over 16,000 Canadian women, found that total hip BMD alone maximized overall osteoporotic fracture risk prediction. When there was a discrepancy between total hip and femoral neck, the total hip was more related to fracture risk. The spine measurement did not improve the fracture prediction. However, in this large study, only the clinical (symptomatic) spine fractures were included and the patients did not get routine xrays to see if they had actually developed a compression fracture of the spine. A subsequent study found that spine bone density predicted clinical vertebral fractures (hazard ratio 1.84 per standard deviation) and hip bone density predicted non-vertebral fractures (HR 1.66 per standard deviation). Using both measurements modestly improved overall fracture prediction if the discrepancy was more than one standard deviation. They then derived a modification of the FRAX prediction tool, which is described on the risk calculator page. This image shows the ...

With all the recent confusion as to who will face Jon Jones for his Light Heavyweight title, several fighters have been left with different opponents in the wake of one of the most baffling stories in recent memory.. One person left out in the cold during all this is middleweight fighter, Alan Belcher, who went from having a fight scheduled with Vitor Belfort at UFC 153 on September 22nd, to having no opponent as Belfort was given a title shot against Jon Jones.. As Belcher stated earlier today on Twitter, however, this shift is a blessing in disguise as Belcher has sustained a serious injury, a spinal fracture. Now Belcher doesnt have to be the one to cancel on his opponent but instead fly under the radar and have a (hopefully) peaceful recovery before returning to his title run in the middleweight division.. Here is Belchers Tweet from earlier today.. Via Twitter @alanbelcherufc:. Everyones asking if I am mad at @Ufc @jonnybones @vitorbelfort answer is no. this is a blessing in disguise. I ...
Our results agree with three recent meta-analyses that examined study level data from trials of supplementation with vitamin D, calcium, or the two combined.12 13 26 The trials included in these systematic reviews differed slightly. Two reviews focused on vitamin D and also found that vitamin D alone was ineffective in preventing any fracture or hip fractures and that the combination of calcium and vitamin D showed benefit.12 13 Boonen et al did not examine any fractures12; in the Cochrane review, calcium and vitamin D prevented any fractures only in people living in institutions.13 By contrast, the findings of our individual patient data review strongly favoured calcium and vitamin D for prevention of any fractures in all populations examined. The Cochrane review did not find that clinical vertebral fracture was prevented by vitamin D with or without calcium supplementation,13 as found here, although few trials provided these data. These two previous systematic reviews did not assess the ...

Vertebral fractures are a serious consequence of osteoporosis. Such a break can lead to acute and chronic back pain, spinal deformity and hip
Symptoms. The problem is spine fractures usually surface as just another routine back pain, that flares up when you bend or lift something heavy off the ground. However, it transforms from an acute pain to a nagging, chronic pain after a couple of months by which time you are resigned to loss of strength and mobility, regular pain, etc.. Diagnosis. This is also one of the reasons spine fractures are extremely difficult to diagnose, with less than 25% of cases being accurately found out before it has become a serious issue. The diagnosis is usually carried out by Xrays, CT scans and MRI, physical exams and complete evaluation of medical history. Women over 50 who are prone to osteoporosis should be carefully examined and treated..

Objective To investigate the prevalence of vertebral fractures and to identify risk factors associated with vertebral fractures in Chinese women with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Methods One hundred fifty-two consecutive patients with SLE were recruited in this cross-sectional study. Bone mineral density (BMD) measurements of the hip and spine were performed using the same dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). Lateral radiographs of the spine (T5-L4) were assessed for vertebral fractures using a method described by Genant. Inflammatory and biochemical markers included C-reactive protein, receptor activator of nuclear factor-κB ligand, serum ß-CrossLaps assay for C-terminal telopeptides of type 1 collagen, and osteoprotegerin (OPG). Results Asymptomatic vertebral fractures occurred in 20.4% of patients with SLE. Univariate analyses of variables associated with fractures were older age, higher body mass index (BMI), lower BMD spine, lower BMD hips, higher serum C3 and C4, longer ...

The authors believe that the standardized and systematic study of immobilization techniques, diagnostic modalities, medical and surgical treatment strategies, and ultimately outcomes and outcome measurement after cervical spinal trauma and cervical spinal fracture injuries, if performed using well-designed medical evidence-based comparative investigations with meaningful follow-up, has both merit and the remarkable potential to identify optimal strategies for assessment, characterization, and clinical management. However, they recognize that there is inherent difficulty in attempting to apply evidence-based medicine (EBM) to identify ideal treatment strategies for individual cervical fracture injuries. First, there is almost no medical evidence reported in the literature for the management of specific isolated cervical fracture subtypes; specific treatment strategies for specific fracture injuries have not been routinely studied in a rigorous, comparative way. One of the vulnerabilities of an ...

Vertebral compression fractures: a review of current management and multimodal therapy Cyrus C Wong, Matthew J McGirt Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN, USA Abstract: Vertebral compression fractures are a prevalent disease affecting osteoporotic patients. When symptomatic, they cause significant pain and loss of function and have a high public health impact. In this paper we outline the diagnosis and management of these patients, with evidence-based review of treatment outcomes for the various therapeutic options. Diagnosis involves a clinical history focusing on the nature of the patient's pain as well as various imaging studies. Management is multimodal in nature and starts with conservative therapy consisting of analgesic medication, medication for osteoporosis, physical therapy, and bracing. Patients who are refractory to conservative management may be candidates for vertebral augmentation through either vertebroplasty or kyphoplasty. Keywords: vertebral compression fractures

In spinal fractures, a fracture or displacement of a vertebra can cause bone fragments to pinch and harm the spinal nerves or spinal cord. A spinal fracture may occur due to car accidents, sports, falls, gunshots, etc. A fracture in the spine, usually caused by osteoporosis, is generally referred to as a compression fracture. The foremost symptom of spinal compression fractures is back pain. The pain may get worse over time.. Compression fractures are most common in women over 50 years of age because of osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is the medical term for low bone density, and it is most common in women over 50, though it can occur in men as well.. Apart from back pain, various other symptoms of spinal compression fractures include:. Severe back pain when you stand or walk but some relief when you lie down.

Compression fractures (CFs) of the spinal vertebrae can occur in two main varieties: acute and chronic. Acute CFs can occur at any age and can be quite serious, especially if the bony fragments displace into the spinal canal where the spinal cord in located. These most often represent unstable fractures and must be evaluated immediately to ensure that neurological loss is minimized or avoided. But what about the more common chronic type of compression fracture?. Studies show that our bones are most dense when we are about 30 years old. As we enter middle and older age, the bones can weaken, which is a state called osteopenia. The weakened vertebrae can accumulate small cracks, which can compromise their integrity, resulting in a chronic spinal compression fracture. A December 2020 study concluded that surgery is typically only advised when the fracture is unstable or there is neurological loss, a severe collapse, or intense pain-which may only occur in roughly 15-35% of chronic compression ...

Compression fractures can be painful. The pain from sudden fractures can be severe and debilitating. Fractures that develop gradually may only cause mild pain. Compression fractures can change your height. You can lose several inches of height over time. These fractures can also cause your spine to bend forward. You may develop a stooped posture and a rounded back. Compression fractures can put pressure on the spinal nerves that travel to the legs. This makes walking difficult. The pressure can also interfere with the function of the bowels and bladder.. ...

Background Data: Although most sacral fractures can be treated conservatively, several surgical options are available for highly unstable fractures. Surgery aims to provide sacral realignment, fixation, and maybe neural decompression with subsequent pain relief and early mobilization. Surgical options are variable depending on the type of fractures and surgeons experience. Spinopelvic fixation is one of the famous surgical procedures. Purpose: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of lumbopelvic fixation for the treatment of unstable traumatic spinopelvic sacral fractures. Study Design: Prospective cohort study. Patients and Methods: All patients with unstable spinopelvic sacral fractures excluding those with other types of sacral fractures were recruited for this study. All patients were submitted to lumbopelvic fixation. Patients were evaluated clinically and radiologically, including full lumbar and pelvis X-Ray and 3D MSCT scan at the pre- and postoperative period. Clinical parameters included a

Osteoporotic patients can present with either single or multiple fractures secondary to repeated falls and progressive osteoporosis. Multiple fractures often lead to additional spinal deformity and are a sign of more severe osteoporosis. In the thoracic spine, multiple fractures are associated with the development of gradual thoracic kyphosis but neurologic deficits are uncommon. In the lumbar spine, patients with multiple lumbar fractures have more constant lumbar pain, may have symptoms related to concurrent lumbar stenosis or degenerative scoliosis, and may present with radiculopathy, especially with fractures at L4 and L5. In a review of a series of patients with recurrent multiple lumbar fractures or

Despite being a significant healthcare problem, the etiology of compression fractures is not fully understood, and there are no biomechanical models in the literature that describe the development of these fractures based on cancellous bone failure accumulation.

The model predicts the accumulated percentage of broken trabeculae δ in a vertebral region of interest (ROI) over 60 years, by employing Eulers theory for elastic buckling. The accumulated failure δ is calculated as function of the daily activity characteristics and rate of annual bone loss (RABL) with aging. An RABL of unity represents the ...
