Twenty-one sufferers (6.5%) underwent sacroplasty, and the others underwent conservative administration after fracture analysis.

Intercourse- and age-adjusted standardized mortality ratio (SMR) elevated after fractures. The general SMR is eight.9 at Three months lowering to four.5 at 2 years. Multivariable Cox regression evaluation confirmed that vital elements related to elevated mortality have been male gender, malignancy historical past, lumbosacral fusion with distal fusion stage S1, stroke historical past, low complete femur bone mineral density rating, and low physique mass index.
CONCLUSIONS: Like different forms of osteoporotic fractures, sacral insufficiency fractures are related to elevated mortality.
