Older women sufferig from osteoporosis create the main group in which this fracture occurs. Clinically, serious pain in sacral area is the most common symptome. This pain may last for a long time when treated conservatively and it can lead to pacient's immobilization with related comorbidity. In 2% of patients, neurological complications can be observed.
