[Secondary osteoporosis. Glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis: Threshold of bone mineral density for vertebral fracture].

Abstract

The use of systemic corticosteroids is one of independent risk factors with bone mineral density (BMD) for fractures. The prior and current exposure to corticosteroids confers an increased risk of fracture that is of substantial importance beyond that explained by the decrease of BMD. Cut-off value of lumbar BMD for vertebral fractures was 80% of young… (More)
