PurposeIn the healing of osteoporotic vertebral fracture, global spinal mal-alignment might increase the load sharing at the fracture site and deteriorate the fracture healing. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of spinopelvic alignment on the union status of thoracolumbar osteoporosis-related vertebral compression fracture (OVCF).MethodsConsecutive 48 patients with a single-level thoracolumbar fresh OVCF were treated non-operatively. Union was judged by three independent observers at 6… CONTINUE READING
