Significance of paraspinal muscle quality in risk between single and multiple osteoporotic vertebral fractures

ConclusionsThe pure muscle volumes of the multifidus, psoas major, and quadratus lumborum were lower in patients with multiple OVFs than in those with a single OVF. Furthermore, the inter-correlation among all the paraspinal muscles indicate that the muscle-bone crosstalk profoundly existed in vertebral fracture cascade. Therefore, special attention to paraspinal muscle quality is needed to prevent progression to multiple OVFs.
