Abstract

Osteoporosis is a common problem among aging persons. The costs to society are over 6 billion dollars a year. In this study, we used a three-dimensional finite element model to determine the differential effects of loss of trabeculae and the reduction of cortical or bony endplate thickness. The results showed that loss of trabecular density resulted in higher bony endplate stress that could cause endplate fractures. The results also suggested that cortical thickness is a very important parameter when evaluating the osteoporosis patient's risk of fracture.
