CitationKarakilic, E., & Saygili, E. S. (2021). Letter to the editor from karakilic and saygili: "radiological thoracic vertebral fractures are highly prevalent in COVID-19 and predict disease outcomes". Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, 106(12), E5270. doi:10.1210/clinem/dgab604
We read with great interest a published article in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism titled “Radiological thoracic vertebral fractures are highly prevalent in COVID-19 and predict disease outcomes” (1). This article focuses on an exciting topic about COVID-19 that has not been covered before and reports that the presence of vertebral fracture may predict COVID-19 mortality and that mortality is higher in those with moderate/severe fractures.
