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)

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)

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

Vertebral fractures are the classic hallmark of osteoporosis, yet little is known of their epidemiology. The incidence of clinically diagnosed vertebral fractures was therefore directly assessed in the predominantly white (European descent) population of Rochester, Minnesota. Altogether, 341 Rochester residents were radiologically diagnosed for the first time with one or more vertebral fractures in the 5 year study period, 1985-1989. The overall age- and sex-adjusted incidence rate was 117 per 100,000 person-years (95% CI, 105 to 130). The age-adjusted rate in women (145 per 100,000 person-years) was almost twice that in men (73 per 100,000 person-years). Of all fractures, 47 (14%) followed severe trauma, 282 (83%) followed moderate or no trauma, and 12 (3%) were pathologic. Incidence rates for fractures following moderate trauma were higher in women than in men and rose steeply with age in both genders. In contrast, fractures following severe trauma were more frequent in men, and their incidence

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

Thirty-three patients with 42 lesions of acute vertebral compression fractures on conventional MR imaging were examined with diffusion-weighted MR imaging using a steady-state free precession (SSFP) sequence. In 42 lesions, 24 lesions were benign osteoporotic compression fractures; the remaining 18 lesions were pathologic fractures due to metastatic tumor infiltration. All lesions were confirmed by surgical histopathology, clinical or MRI follow-up. The signal characteristics of all ...
vertebroplasty promises dramatic relief from painful vertebral body compression fractures. Vertebroplasty is not really a new technique. It has been used mainly in the treatment of painful osteoporotic compression fractures that are unresponsive to medical therapy.
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. Difficulty in bending or twisting your body. A curved, stooped shape to your spine. Loss of height. Limited spinal mobility. Though most fractures heal with traditional treatment, severe ...

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.. ...

Arthritis injection therapies provide a safe and non-invasive alternative to surgery. With a proper and prompt diagnosis, the treatment of the affected area will typically allow most patients to resume normal activities and return to work in a relatively short period of time. What are the common symptoms of compression fractures?. This trauma may not manifest itself with typical sudden or severe back pain. The symptoms are diverse and progressive. Affected patients suffering with compression fractures experience increasing pain when standing, walking, and with increased activity. Relief from the pain can be found through resting or lying down temporarily. Often there is chronic pain when involved in a lot of bending or twisting motions are used. Additionally, height loss occurs with compression fractures with the collapse of each level of vertebrae. This results in a noticeable shorter stature and a deformity of the spine. The deformity known as Kyphosis creates a curve in the spine commonly ...

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

Of 135 patients enrolled, data were available on 118 (64% female, median age 10.8 years) at 12 m. Diagnoses included juvenile dermatomyositis (JDM) (23%), juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) (36 %), systemic lupus (SLE) and related conditions (18%), systemic vasculitis (14%), and other ( 9%). At 12 m, 7 patients (6%) had 12 incident VFs (3 SLE, 2 JDM, 1 vasculitis, 1 overlap). All incident VFs were new fractures; 5 patients had a single VF, one had 2 VFs and one had 5 VFs. Three patients had mild and 4 had moderate VFs. Nine (75%) of the incident VFs were thoracic and 11 (92%) had wedge morphology. Patients with and without incident VFs were similar for age, gender, pubertal status, disease activity, physical activity, vitamin D/calcium intake and presence of back pain. The decrease in spine aBMD and increase in BMI in the first 6 months was larger in those with incident VFs (Δ spine aBMD Z-score mean -0.8, SD 0.4; Δ BMI Z-score +1.7, SD 1.0) versus those without (Δ spine aBMD Z-score -0.4, ...

Authors: Slomka, Noa , Diamant, Idit , Gefen, Amit Article Type: Research Article Abstract: Vertebral compression fractures are a potentially severe injury, which is characteristic to osteoporotic elderly. 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 objective of this study was therefore to develop a computational model of tissue-level failure accumulation in vertebral cancellous bone, which …eventually leads to compression fractures. 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 ...

Two RCTs have assessed the efficacy of salmon calcitonin nasal spray on the rates of vertebral collapse (radiographically-detected) and non-vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women with bone mineral density (BMD) levels 2 standard deviations or more below mean values of 30 year old women. 24, 25 The first RCT, a 2-year dose-response study, had a sample size too small to detect differences in fracture rates.. The PROOF study was a 5-year study that randomized participants with at least one vertebral collapse at baseline to receive 100, 200 or 400 IU of salmon-calcitonin, or placebo. The primary endpoint was the incidence of new vertebral collapse compared to placebo. In 817 patients with vertebral fractures at baseline and follow-up radiographs, 21.3% taking 200 or 400 IU salmon calcitonin vs. 29.6% taking placebo experienced ≥ 1 new collapse (RR 0.72 [0.54-0.96], ARR 8.3%, NNT = 12 for 3 years). There was no effect of the drug on non-vertebral or symptomatic fractures. Fifty-nine percent of ...
An interpretive illustration of an MRI depicting a sagittal view of compression fractures at the L1 and L2 vertebrae as a result of osteoporosis. Over time as bone becomes weaker and more porous, they become more susceptible to injury and fractures, especially in situations where significant weight or stress is placed on the bone. In this case, the vertebral bodies of L1 and L2 have collapsed, resulting in a displacement of the bones and intervertebral discs into the spinal canal, resulting in pain and possibly reducing the patients mobility. - Stock Image C027/6314
Vertebroplasty has been shown to significantly benefit patients with acute painful vertebral fractures in terms of pain relief, improved quality of life, and reduced medication requirements.1-3 It is still unclear, however, whether the procedure in fact increases the risk of subsequent fractures. Although we have not demonstrated a direct causal relationship between vertebroplasty and subsequent fractures, we consider the findings of the current study provocative. We observe a significant relationship between the time course of fractures occurring after vertebroplasty and the distance of those new fractures from the treated level. Fractures of vertebral bodies adjacent to those treated with vertebroplasty occurred significantly sooner than fractures not immediately adjacent to a treated level. This relationship is further supported by multivariable modeling that shows a relationship between the absolute distance of the incident fracture from the treated level and the timing of the incident ...

PTSD symptoms may result when a traumatic event causes an over-reactive adrenaline response, which creates deep neurological patterns in the brain. These patterns can persist long after the event that triggered the fear, making an individual hyper-responsive to future fearful situations.[20][81] During traumatic experiences the high levels of stress hormones secreted suppress hypothalamic activity that may be a major factor toward the development of PTSD.[82] PTSD causes biochemical changes in the brain and body, that differ from other psychiatric disorders such as major depression. Individuals diagnosed with PTSD respond more strongly to a dexamethasone suppression test than individuals diagnosed with clinical depression.[83][84] Most people with PTSD show a low secretion of cortisol and high secretion of catecholamines in urine,[85] with a norepinephrine/cortisol ratio consequently higher than comparable non-diagnosed individuals.[86] This is in contrast to the normative fight-or-flight ...

  • It's possible to fracture a thoracic vertebra due to trauma, but it isn't as common. (
  • The term compression fracture describes a type of fracture in which a spinal vertebra caves in on itself due to compression-or pressure-on the bone. (
  • A crush fracture is characterized by a fracture throughout the entire vertebra, not just the front. (
  • A burst fracture is aptly named, because as the vertebra collapses, it breaks out in multiple directions, often sending pieces of shattered bone into the surrounding tissues of the spine or the spinal cord. (
  • This type of fracture causes the vertebra to burst apart and in severe cases fragments of bone can be pushed into the spinal cord," says Dr Ruth Wilcox of Leeds' Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. (
  • A vertebral compression fracture occurs when too much pressure is placed on a weakened vertebra and the front of it cracks and loses height. (
  • Each vertebra has a hole in the center, creating a long passage called the spinal canal. (
  • This involves injecting a cement-like material into the vertebra to stabilize the fracture and restore the height of the bone. (
  • The orthopedic surgeon threads a thin tube through an incision in the back up to the fractured vertebra, drills a small hole through the outer part of the bone into the soft center, inserts a balloon, and, then, inflates it. (

  • The spinal cord ends around the first lumbar vertebra. (
  • When a vertebra is fractured, bone fragments can damage the spinal cord, nerves and intervertebral discs. (
  • The term "wedge fracture" is used because the fracture usually occurs in the front of the vertebra, collapsing the bone in the front of the spine and leaving the back of the same bone unchanged. (
  • If the entire bone breaks, rather than just the front of the vertebra, it may be called a crush fracture. (
  • This type of fracture involves some loss of the height in both the front and back walls of the vertebral body (rather than just the front of the vertebra). (
  • In space between a body and an arch of a vertebra there is a spinal cord. (
  • Allocate the isolated spinal fractures at which there is an injury of one vertebra and multiple, at which the fracture of two and more vertebras is observed. (

  • This guidance document provides you with information regarding clinical studies for devices used in spinal vertebral body augmentation for the purpose of treating insufficiency fractures of the spinal vertebral body due to minor trauma, osteoporosis, or other lytic conditions. (
  • Spinal fractures often refer to trauma to the bone or ligaments from the base of the skull to the tailbone or coccyx. (
  • In low energy trauma, often the fracture of a vertebral body results in a compression without significant neurologic injury and without injury to the spinal cord or nerves. (
  • In the trauma centers, spinal fractures from high velocity injuries are managed based on an evaluation of the stability of the spine and the neural elements that are at risk. (
  • The ankylosed spine is prone to fracture after minor trauma due to its changed biomechanical properties. (
  • The prevalence of AS is stable, but since DISH may become more widespread due to its association with age, obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus, a systematic review of the literature was conducted to increase the current knowledge on treatment, neurological status and complications of patients with preexisting ankylosed spines sustaining spinal trauma. (
  • This review suggests that the clinical outcome of patients with fractures in previously ankylosed spines, due to AS or DISH, is considerably worse compared to the general trauma population. (
  • Based on conducted imaging diagnostics (trauma scan CT before and after intravenous administration of the contrast medium), the following diagnosis was established: multifocal injury, pulmonary contusion with laceration, and the right occipital condyle fracture (Figures 1 and 2 ). (
  • Introduction: The aim of the present study was to examine any non spinal tissue injuries accompanying spinal fractures in an attempt to determine if spinal fractures are an indicator of the presence, severity, and prognosis of concomitant organ/tissue injuries in two trauma center in Turkey. (
  • Conclusion: Every patient presenting to emergency department after a high-energy trauma should be regarded as vertebral fracture sunless proven otherwise, and any spine fractures should be taken serious with regard to potential internal organ injuries. (
  • Consistent with previous research, the authors included only those fractures that occurred as a result of minimum trauma. (
  • Typically, they are attributed to high-impact trauma resulting in complete spinal cord injuries. (
  • Spinal trauma-emergency management. (
  • Spinal fractures are often caused by trauma such as an automobile crash, sports injury or fall. (
  • Emergency treatment for a suspected spinal fracture caused by trauma usually begins with pain control and stabilization to prevent further damage. (
  • Even minor falls or trauma can produce a spine fracture. (
  • In developing of fractures cervical department of a backbone the large role is played by the inertial mechanism of a trauma (a so-called 'hlystovy trauma') most of which often arises at motor transportation incidents: the car sharply stops, the case of the person is kept by a seat belt, at the same time the head by inertia continues to move forward. (
  • Sometimes the similar trauma becomes the reason of a fracture of chest vertebras . (
  • Besides, spinal fractures can arise at a sdavleniye and a direct trauma (blow in a neck or a back). (
  • All spinal fractures are subdivided into fractures of vertebras without injury of a spinal cord and with its damage ( a vertebral and spinal trauma ). (
  • Most are caused by trauma to the vertebral column, affecting the spinal cord's ability to send and receive messages from the brain to the body's systems that control sensory, motor and autonomic function below the area of injury. (
  • A bone fracture may be the result of high force impact or stress, or a minimal trauma injury as a result of certain medical conditions that weaken the bones, such as osteoporosis, osteopenia, bone cancer, or osteogenesis imperfecta, where the fracture is then properly termed a pathologic fracture. (
  • A wedge compression fracture is usually a mechanically stable fracture, but can lead to spinal deformity, such as a hunchback posture. (
  • An unstable fracture is one that is likely to change further, possibly damaging nerves and other tissue in the process or creating an unacceptable spinal deformity. (
  • Each additional fracture increases the spinal deformity. (
  • Patients with AS tend to present with restricted spinal movement and progressive deformity ( 4 ). (
  • Left untreated, vertebral fractures can lead to continued pain, decreased physical function, spinal deformity (e.g. dowager ’ s hump), and even increased mortality rates. (
  • It leads to progressive deformity and stiffening of the spine with an increased risk of vertebral fractures and significant neurological deficits compared to the general population. (
  • In addition the initial spinal deformity caused by the vertebral fracture will be corrected to a significant degree, allowing for better body posture and assist with mobility. (
  • The patient underwent T3-L3 surgical decompression/ fusion under fluoroscopic guidance of his spinal fractures from T3-T5, spondyloptosis at T11/12, and scoliotic deformity. (
  • Making this distinction is important because burst fractures can be unstable and result in progressive deformity or neurologic compromise. (
  • Vertebral fractures are usually followed by acute back pain, and may lead to chronic pain, deformity ( thoracic kyphosis , commonly referred to as a dowager's hump), loss of height, crowding of internal organs, and loss of muscle and aerobic conditioning due to lack of activity and exercise. (
  • If the compression is severe, affecting the spinal cord or nerve roots, you will experience severe pain and a hunched forward deformity (kyphosis). (
  • However, it does not correct the spinal deformity. (
  • Even if surgery cannot reverse spinal cord damage, surgery may be needed to stabilize the spine to prevent future pain or deformity. (
  • New research could offer hope for victims of the most devastating spinal injuries - typically those caused in car crashes. (
  • She alleges that if her spine fracture had been timely and appropriately recognized and treated by the Defendants, she would have avoided the spinal cord compression, paralysis, and permanent injuries which she later sustained. (
  • The study was partially motivated by doctors' concerns that the cement injections into patients' spines could potentially increase the risk of future spinal cord injuries. (
  • Spinal cord injuries can be a result of lesser injuries to the ligaments or tendons, meninges (spinal membrane), spinal fractures, compressions, dislocations, and also nervous system injuries, which can in some cases cause paralysis. (
  • Individuals who present with spinal cord injuries may experience neck pain, back pain , or pain in other affected areas, as well as lack of sensation (numbness), muscle tension, fatigue, and incontinence. (
  • These fractures are traditionally considered benign injuries that heal without complications. (
  • Considering the potential increase in prevalence of DISH cases, this condition may render a new challenge for physicians treating spinal injuries. (
  • If you or a loved one have sustained multiple compression fractures in a vehicle accident due to another's recklessness or negligence, you deserve to pursue compensation for all of your injuries and the costs associated with them. (
  • One of the most serious injuries that can result from a car accident are spinal fractures . (
  • Spinal injuries caused by a car crash are usually accompanied by other injuries that will also need emergency medical attention. (

  • Results There was a statistically significant correlation between the accompanying injuries and the single Powered by Editorial Manager® and ProduXion Manager® from Aries Systems Corporation level spinal fractures, the anatomical localization of the spinal fracture (p=0.012, p=0.048). (
  • Spinal fractures, Associated injuries, Organ injuries. (
  • Traumatic injury may reflect the injury severity and patient life is more deeply affected by spinal fractures than other types of injuries [ 1 - 4 ]. (
  • The spine is protected and supported fairly well by surrounding tissues and organs and only impacts of considerable force that lead to multiple organ injuries are able to cause spinal fractures. (
  • Spine fractures can be accompanied by a wide range of organ/ tissue injuries and emergency physicians should be familiar with and actively sought for the presence of other system traumas and injuries to provide early and directed care when they serve patients with spine fractures [ 1 , 6 ]. (
  • Despite the fact that there are several studies that have investigated accompanying tissue/organ injuries with spine fractures, our literature search we found only a single report of systematic studies scrutinizing the accompanying tissue injuries in relation with the anatomical location of spine fractures [ 3 , 5 - 8 ]. (

  • Spinal fractures concern to group of heavy injuries of a skeleton and make 2-2,5% of total number of changes. (
  • Patients who have spinal compression fractures could benefit from a kyphoplasty. (
  • Balloon kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of pathological fractures of the vertebral body due to osteoporosis, cancer, or benign lesion. (
  • Kyphoplasty is a procedure that is performed in order to help stabilize the spine that has been fractured. (
  • If you have a spinal fracture you may benefit from kyphoplasty or vertebraloplasty. (
  • The spinal surgeons at Cleveland Clinic Center for Spine Health can now, using a new technology, re-expand the vertebral body (kyphoplasty) and augment its strength by injecting bone cement. (
  • This type of fracture is usually more serious than either a wedge or a crush fracture and more likely to be unstable. (
  • This type of fracture is also known as a vertebral compression fracture because the bone that breaks (the vertebral body) often cracks and collapses, becoming compressed. (
  • The stability of the spine is not compromised with this type of fracture. (
  • This type of fracture is potentially unstable and requires surgical intervention. (
  • Treatment of spinal fractures depends on the type of fracture and the degree of instability. (
  • The misaligned bones can press against your spinal cord or cause spinal instability. (
  • Assessing the utility of the spinal instability neoplastic score (SINS) to predict fracture after conventional radiation therapy (RT) for spinal metastases. (
  • When associated with instability or compression of nerves, fractures can often lead to symptoms including pain, weakness, numbness and tingling. (
  • When a fracture causes a vertebral body collapse of more than 50 percent, there is a risk of segmental instability, which can produce pain, impair daily activities and speed degeneration of the spine in the affected area. (
  • Spinal fractures can also affect the other parts of the spine-the nerves, spinal cord, ligaments, etc.-and this article will discuss those later. (
  • Spinal cord and nerves. (
  • This test will show any damage to the soft tissues around the fracture (nerves and disks) in better detail. (
  • Your spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that carries signals from your brain to the rest of your body. (
  • A spinal fracture is different from a fracture of the limbs, because the spine is the location of both the spinal cord and spinal nerves. (
  • Additionally, for patients with spinal fractures, a neck pillow will help to reduce pressure on the spinal nerves, as will surgery when complete. (
  • HealthDay News) - In patients with radiculopathy or neurogenic claudication due to compression of spinal nerves, lumbar epidural steroid injections (LESIs) increase the risk of vertebral fractures , according to a study published in the June 5 issue of The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery . (
  • Abnormal slipping and rubbing motions can cause pain and damage the spinal nerves or spinal cord. (
  • If the injured parts of the spine push against spinal nerves, patients can experience severe pain down their arms and/or legs. (
  • In addition to pain, pressure on nerves from fractures can also cause numbness, tingling, burning, and weakness in your arms and/or legs. (
  • Past this level, the spinal canal contains nerves that travel down the canal and exit at the appropriate level. (
  • This bundle of nerves below the end of the spinal cord within the spinal canal is called the cauda equina, which literally means "horse's tail. (
  • Most patients present with back pain, but they can also have a radiculopathy if fragments of the fracture are compressing nerves. (
  • Numbness and weakness may also be experienced if the fracture compresses or damages nerves in the spine. (
  • [] As in other spinal fractures , a fracture -dislocation can result in bone fragments causing pinching and damage to the spinal nerves or spinal cord. (
  • At Atlantic Spine Specialists in Morristown, New Jersey, spinal fractures are taken very seriously because injury to the spinal cord and nerves can compromise a patient's quality of life drastically. (
  • Between two next vertebras there are openings for an exit of backs of spinal nerves. (
  • If a fracture causes part of the vertebral body to place pressure on the spinal cord, the nerves and spinal cord can be affected. (
  • Pieces of the broken vertebral body may push into the spinal canal, causing narrowing that can lead to immediate injury to the spinal nerves, future nerve irritation, and reduced blood and oxygen supply to the spinal cord, causing numbness and pain. (
  • Damage to adjacent structures such as nerves, muscles or blood vessels, spinal cord, and nerve roots (for spine fractures), or cranial contents (for skull fractures) may cause other specific signs and symptoms. (
  • If your doctor suspects a vertebral compression fracture, he or she will order an x-ray to confirm the diagnosis. (
  • The best diagnostic tool for diagnosis of the extradural cysts of the spinal cord is MRI of the spine. (
  • Based on aforementioned evaluations, the following diagnosis was established: avulsion fracture of the right occipital condyle (type III according to Anderson-Montesano classification). (
  • Diagnosis of osteoporotic vertebral fractures: importance of recognition and description by radiologists. (
  • It is fracture type, timing of diagnosis, neurological deficit, characterised by ossification of the sacroiliac joints, inter- management and complications were assessed. (
  • The diagnosis of a fracture is first suspected after a thorough history and physical examination. (
  • In order to receive an accurate diagnosis for a compression fracture, a physician must complete a physical examination which will likely include diagnostic imaging such as x-rays that can help determine the location and severity of the fracture, and initial treatment approach. (
