Osteoporotic fractures: technical aspects of surgical treatment
Osteoporosis affects more than 200 million patients worldwide. Approximately 700,000 Americans suffer from osteoporotic thoracolumbar fractures every year. A vertebral compression fracture almost triples the risk of secondary fracture. Many patients suffer from pain and disability. As spine surgeons, we are faced with the challenge of treating older patients surgically.
But is kyphoplasty sufficient? When do we need instrumented stabilisation and what are the key indicators for this?
Take part in the international EUROSPINE debate on technical aspects of surgical treatment of osteoporotic fractures! Alex Vaccaro (USA) and Frank Kandziora (GER), two of the world's leading spinal trauma surgeons, will discuss whether kyphoplasty is sufficient or whether instrumented stabilisation is required. Don't miss this battle of the spine experts!
