AbstractVertebral fractures (VFs) are the most common osteoporotic fracture. A VF, after minor trauma, is a hallmark of osteoporosis. Prevalent VFs increase the risk of future vertebral and nonvertebral osteoporotic fracture independent of bone mineral density (BMD). VFs are associated with poor life quality, impaired bending and rising, difficulties in the activities of daily living, frailty, higher risk of hospitalisation and higher mortality. It is important to identify and report VFs. Appropriate management of osteoporosis can reduce future fracture risk.
