This comprehensive review of current concepts in the management of vertebral compression fractures is a manuscript of vertebral augmentation literature of risk factors, clinical presentation, and management. The objective of this review is to compare outcomes between multiple augmentation techniques and ongoing discussions of effectiveness of vertebral augmentation procedures.

Despite the increasing national incidence, osteoporosis and its associated co-management, often remain an overlooked issue in the orthopaedic world. Screening and associated management of osteoporosis...
The aim to evaluate central sarcopenia, as measured by psoas cross-sectional area on admission imaging, is associated with outcomes in patients with vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) treated with...
Posterior Vertebral Column Resection Combined With Bone Cement Augmentation of Pedicle Screw Fixation for Treatment of Severe Vertebral Compression Fractures With Kyphotic Deformity: A Retrospective Case Series.
This was a retrospective study.
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 defor...
There is a significant global burden of disease associated with the management of hip fractures. Despite numerous studies that are focused on the treatment of patients with proximal femur fractures, t...
The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of radiofrequency ablation of the medial branch nerves (RFA-MBN) in relieving pain and improving physical function in patients with subacu...
Patients with osteoporotic vertebral body compression fractures will be randomly assigned to treatment with balloon kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty. Over 2 years of follow-up, back pain, ba...
Doctors are studying an investigational treatment to be used during the vertebroplasty procedure when treating vertebral compression fractures (spine fractures) that may help to reduce pai...
This study aimed to assess the sensory and kinematic components of the limits of stability (LOS) test in patients with vertebral compression fracture (VCF) .
The management of osteoporotic fractures has recently changed with the emergence of new programs dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis. For example, the Fracture Network...
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
Procedures to repair or stabilize vertebral fractures, especially compression fractures by injecting BONE CEMENTS into the fractured VERTEBRAE.
Acute and chronic conditions characterized by external mechanical compression of the SPINAL CORD due to extramedullary neoplasm; EPIDURAL ABSCESS; SPINAL FRACTURES; bony deformities of the vertebral bodies; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations vary with the anatomic site of the lesion and may include localized pain, weakness, sensory loss, incontinence, and impotence.
Broken bones in the vertebral column.
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
