Mineral density of vertebral bodies and state of intervertebral discs

Volodymyr Radchenko, Sergey Kosterin, Ninel Dedukh

Abstract


The analysis of 40 literature sources, presented in the article, revealed diametrically opposite views on manifestations of intervertebral disk degradation and state of bone tissue: some authors affirm that osteoporous tissue protects intervertebral disks from destructive changes; others reveal some correlation between the density of vertebral bodies and disk degeneration. Also available are studies, in which none of these viewpoints is supported.


Keywords
