This issue of "Osteoporosis: Clinical Updates" explores the problem of repeat fractures and what healthcare providers can do to prevent them.

While pain from vertebral compression fractures usually resolves spontaneously without treatment, some patients suffer debilitating pain despite optimal nonsurgical care. In these individuals, minimally invasive percutaneous vertebral augmentation can offer relief. The two most widely performed augmentation procedures are vertebroplasty and balloon kyphoplasty. Both techniques use bone cement to stabilize crushed vertebral bone and, in the case of kyphoplasty, to restore a measure of vertebral height lost to compression. Fee: Member- $0; Nonmember-$10
