Osteoporotic vertebral fractures that are stable, non-traumatic, unrelated to other underlying pathologies and associated with low bone density, vary enormously in terms of the level of symptoms and impact on quality of life. Patients may present for ‘symptomatic control’ with acute or chronic pain, loss of height caused by a shortening of the trunk and increased kyphosis-creating problems with activities of daily living. Symptoms can include: breathlessness, bloating and abdominal distension, pressure on the bladder and dysuria.
