Bone strength is determined by mass density, structural arrangement, and the presence of microdamage. This presentation focuses on trabecular microstructure as an element of bone strength, particularly in the syndrome of vertebral compression fracture. The base material comes from transilial biopsies from 90 patients with the crush fracture syndrome and from 34 normal volunteers who underwent transilial biopsy. Trabecular connectivity was compared in these two groups. Patients and normals were… CONTINUE READING
