Osteoporotic Spinal / Vertebral Collapse

Osteoporosis usually affects adult females, causing weakening of the skeleton. Vertebral collapse can occur after very trivial injury, causing persistent pain. If the fracture is not causing any significant problem, it can be managed conservatively with treatment to promote bone healing. If there are complications, including prolonged painful symptom, fracture unable to heal (nonunion), or neurological deficit, surgical intervention has to be considered. Surgeries include vertebroplasty / kyphoplasty, or operative fixation. Vertebroplasty / kyphoplasty can be performed using minimal invasive technique, and it can fasten the recovery of the patient.
