Example text

The postulated mechanisms of delayed vertebral collapse are attributed to either bone ischemia and necrosis [13, 18, 71, 75], or pseudarthrosis [60]. Apparently, it is a combination of both these factors [71, 75]. Repeated microtraumas have been postulated as the causative factor for pseudarthrosis [75], which produces an unstable kyphotic spine and severe pain [75]. Neurological deficit can range from acute paraplegia (usually after an acute crush fracture) [98, 102] to delayed onset of insidious paralysis that gradually deteriorates to severe paraplegia [69, 73].

1) 4. Established painful deformities (kyphosis/scoliosis), and 5. Symptomatic neurocompression caused by osteoporotic fractures Anterior decompression was accomplished through an anterior approach in 15 patients (8 for painful deformity and 7 for neurological deficit). Anterior stabilization alone was achieved by means of a Kostuik rod: n=1, a Kaneda device: n=4, or a plate: n=1. Posterior stabilization was performed in three cases, and combination of anterior Kaneda and posterior instrumentation (Varigrip hook) in another six cases.

In general, a substantial number of mild deformities detected by visual reading are missed by the quantitative technique when applying the common threshold values for reduction in vertebral heights such as 15–20% or 3 SD decrease. Furthermore, a significant number of false positives are found with quantitative techniques. The choice of point placement in the quantitative technique, but especially the choice of the threshold for defining vertebral deformity, gives results that vary in specificity and sensitivity.
