WSM43246 8127 Osteoporosis Thoracic Vertebra 3D Model
This is the eleventh thoracic vertebra from an unidentified adult male, likely to be of old age, excavated from Upton-on-Severn, Worcester as part of a rescue excavation during construction on part of a disused burial ground, dating to between 1836 and 1866.
This individual had several age-related changes to his skeleton, including changes in the mid and lower spine indicative of osteoporosis, which include anterior wedging and reduction in height of the vertebrae as well as secondary degenerative joint disease.
