STUDY DESIGN Structural properties of vertebrae with simulated defects were measured from computed tomography data. Relations between structural properties and postfracture stability were tested using linear regressions. OBJECTIVES To determine whether the postfracture stability of lumbar and thoracic vertebrae can be predicted from noninvasive, prefracture measurements of structural properties. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Sensitive and specific guidelines are needed that can predict… CONTINUE READING
