M. Tsoukas Department of Endocrinology, Montreal General Hospital, McGill University School of Medicine, Montreal, Quebec, Canada G. Sapkas School of Medicine, National University of Greece, Athens, Greece Principles of management of osteometabolic disorders affecting the aging spine Abstract Osteoporosis is the most common contributing factor of spinal fractures, which characteristically are not generally known to produce spinal cord compression symptoms. Recently, an increasing number of medical reports have implicated osteoporotic fractures as a cause of serious neurological deficit and painful disabling spinal deformities.

A prospective study of 9575 women, followed over 8 years, demonstrated that patients with OVCF have a 23–34% increased mortality rate when compared to patients without OVCF [69]. This study echoes the findings of Cooper et al. [25], who demonstrated in a retrospective study that the 5-year survival rate in patients with OVCF is significantly lower than the expected normal survival rate (61 vs 76%), and almost comparable to the 5-years survival rate after hip fracture. However, in hip fractures, the excess mortality rate occurs within 6 months of the fracture event, whereas in OVCF survival declines steadily after the fracture [25].

Some of these visual characteristics are not captured by the six-digitization points used in quantitative techniques; this can cause some deformities to remain undetected. For example, only an experienced observer can make the subtle distinctions between a fractured endplate and wedge shaped appearance caused by the remodeling of the vertebral bodies in degenerative disc disease (Fig. 3). This is often interpreted as a wedge fracture in quantitative studies. In the absence of distinct characteristics of a fracture, however, a reader using a visual approach could rather arbitrarily consider a mild wedge deformity normal, anomalous, or fractured; in such a case, a well-defined quantitative criterion could be useful.
