  • Procedure
  • Before the procedure, you will have a medical exam and undergo imaging studies, such as x-rays, to determine the precise location of the fracture. (medtronic.com)
  • The procedure is done under a general anesthetic and it involves a small incision being made close to the area where the spinal fracture is located. (hoffmannpersonalinjury.com)
  • Was this a normal standard of procedure used by Canadian hospitals or should they have done something other and been able to determine the fracture earlier? (spineuniverse.com)

  • The subjects in these trials had primarily non-acute fractures and prior to the release of the results they were considered the most ideal people to receive the procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Others consider the procedure only appropriate for those with other health problems making rest possibly detrimental, those with metastatic cancer as the cause of the spine fracture, or those who do not improve with conservative management. (wikipedia.org)
  • During the procedure, bone cement is injected with a biopsy needle into the collapsed or fractured vertebra. (wikipedia.org)
  • diagnosis

  • risk
  • Spinal Fractures: Are you at risk? (spineuniverse.com)
  • The risk of fracture was found to increase incrementally with every 1 mg increase above 7.5 mg in the daily dose of the glucocorticoid. (innovations-report.com)
  • This increased fracture risk is notable since the glucocorticoid patients were younger, had higher baseline BMD scores, and fewer pre-existing spinal fractures. (innovations-report.com)
  • There was a trend shown with Actonel to reduce the risk of fracture versus placebo similarly regardless of whether patients did or did not have an existing fracture or whether the daily dose of corticosteroid was 7.5 to 15 mg or >15 mg. (innovations-report.com)
  • In the BMD threshold analysis, the one-year fracture risk in postmenopausal placebo glucocorticoid users was compared to that of 2,570 postmenopausal women with low BMD not using glucocorticoids from four other Actonel trials. (innovations-report.com)
  • Although the glucocorticoid users were younger with higher baseline BMD and fewer pre-existing fractures compared to non-users, their risk of fracture was nearly six-fold higher. (innovations-report.com)
  • Our study raises concerns about the impact of these fractures on quality of life by putting women at risk for subsequent fractures, but it also provides evidence that a simple and non-invasive bone density test can help identify those at risk. (medindia.net)
