Abstract

Osteoporotic spinal compression fractures are a significant health risk for elderly females, as well as other patient groups. These fractures are associated with an increased risk of mortality in comparison with age-matched controls. Recent techniques of minimally invasive surgical treatment show promising early results with respect to pain reduction and restoration of function, with low procedural complication rates.
