Abstract

Osteoporosis leads to bone fragility and increased risk of fracture. Despite advances in diagnosis and treatment, the prevalence continues to rise. Osteoporotic fracture treatment has a unique set of difficulties related to poor bone quality and traditional approaches, and implants may not perform well. Fixation failure and repeat surgery are poorly tolerated and highly undesirable in this patient population. This review illustrates the most recent updates in internal fixation, implant design, and surgical theory regarding treatment of patients with osteoporotic fractures.
