The visual interpretation, when performed by the expert eye, also separates true deformities from normal or anomalous vertebrae. In addition to changes in dimension, vertebral deformities are generally detected visually by the presence of endplate deformities, the lack of parallelism of the endplates, and the general altered appearance compared with 27 neighboring vertebrae.

The postulated mechanisms of delayed vertebral collapse are attributed to either bone ischemia and necrosis [13, 18, 71, 75], or pseudarthrosis [60]. Apparently, it is a combination of both these factors [71, 75]. Repeated microtraumas have been postulated as the causative factor for pseudarthrosis [75], which produces an unstable kyphotic spine and severe pain [75]. Neurological deficit can range from acute paraplegia (usually after an acute crush fracture) [98, 102] to delayed onset of insidious paralysis that gradually deteriorates to severe paraplegia [69, 73].

Three patients who had serious co-morbid diseases were treated with morphine pump. One had a partial paraparesis and the other two intractable painful deformities. Outcomes The patient with complete paraplegia never recovered (Fig. 2), whereas patients with Frankel B, C, or D improved by two grades.
