OBJECTIVES: Traumatic spinopelvic dissociation separates the spinal column from the pelvis, which usually creates lumbosacral kyphosis. We aimed to examine how the spinopelvic profiles changes after traumatic spinopelvic dissociation, and which are the relevant factors for the sagittal imbalance of the spine. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis. SETTING: Level I trauma center PATIENTS:: Thirty-nine consecutive patients who were diagnosed with traumatic spinopelvic dissociation and had a minimum 2-year radiological follow-up were included...

: Osteoporosis is a common disease with a strong genetic component. Several studies have reported the vitamin D receptor (VDR), collagen type I (COL1A1), and LDL receptor-related protein 5 (LRP5) genes as the most likely candidates. However, most of the studies have been carried out in postmenopausal women and older men and show inconsistent results. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of a 26-year old male who presented with severe back pain of acute onset, unrelated to any kind of trauma, and diffuse myalgia...
