Webinar description

The AO Spine Knowledge Forum (KF) Trauma and the German Society for Orthopaedics and Trauma (DGOU) joined forces to develop the osteoporotic vertebral-fractures classification system. In this research webinar, AO Spine KF Trauma invites the audience to join a battle between two internationally recognized experts, presenting their perspective on the surgical management strategy for osteoporotic thoracolumbar fractures. After an introduction session,

Alex Vaccaro will take the position that stand-alone kyphoplasty is sufficient to treat osteoporotic compression fractures, while Lorin Benneker is supporting instrumented stabilization. Whose side are you on? Can we persuade you to change your mind?
