These changes usually begin toward the end of the fifth decade and progress until death. Osteoporotic changes in the bony end plates assume the appearance of lytic, or “punched out,” areas of the bone (Edelson & Nathan, 1988). Vertebral Arch The vertebral (posterior) arch has several unique structures (see Fig. 2-3). These include the pedicles, laminae, and superior articular, inferior articular, transverse, and spinous processes. Each of these subdivisions of the vertebral arch is discussed separately in the following sections.

However, in the fifth decade cervical osteophytes develop more rapidly than in the other regions of the spine, and by the seventh decade the incidence is nearly equal among cervical, thoracic, and lumbar osteophytes; osteophytes of the sacral region (only found on the first sacral segment) are the least common (Nathan, 1962). Anterior osteophytes can result in complete interbody fusion. Such fusion is most common in the mid- to lowerthoracic region and in the lower-cervical region; however, fusion is extremely rare between C7 and T1 and between L5 and the first sacral segment (Nathan, 1962).

12-13). The costal elements of the thoracic region develop into ribs. Elsewhere the costal elements are incorporated with the diapophysis and help to form the transverse process of the fully developed vertebra. The cervical costal elements are composed primarily of the anterior tubercle but also include the intertubercular lamella and a part of the posterior tubercle. The lumbar costal elements are the anterior aspects of the transverse processes, and the left and right sacral alae represent the costal processes of the sacrum.
