The factors related to the poor ADL in the patients with osteoporotic vertebral fracture after instrumentation surgery

Purpose

Osteoporotic vertebral fracture (OVF) with nonunion or neurological deficit may be a candidate for surgical treatment. However, some patients do not show improvement as expected. Therefore, we conducted a nationwide multicenter study to determine the predictors for postoperative poor activity of daily living (ADL) in patients with OVF.

Methods

We retrospectively reviewed the case histories of 309 patients with OVF who underwent surgery. To determine the factors predicting postoperative poor ADL, uni- and multivariate statistical analyses were performed.

Results

The frequency of poor ADL at final follow-up period was 9.1%. In univariate analysis, preoperative neurological deficit (OR, 4.1; 95% CI, 1.8–10.3; P 

Conclusions

Preoperative neurological deficit, perioperative complication, and absence of postoperative rPTH administration were considered as predictors for postoperative poor ADL in patients with OVF. Neurological deficits and complications are often inevitable factors; therefore, rPTH is an important option for postoperative treatment for OVF.
