Vertebral Fractures

The incidence of vertebral fractures has increased in recent years.

They are caused by high-energy trauma (traffic accidents or high altitude falls) or after minimal trauma in cases of osteoporosis.

If the fracture is stable without neurological imapirment, it can be treated with a TLSO brace for 4-6 weeks.

In case of unstable fracture with risk of neurological injury, instrumented surgery could be the choice of election.
