A diverse array of bone density, structure, and strength parameters were significantly associated with distal forearm fractures in postmenopausal women, but most of them were also correlated with femoral neck areal bone mineral density (aBMD), which provides an adequate measure of bone fragility at the wrist for routine clinical purposes. This study seeks to test the clinical utility of approaches for assessing forearm fracture risk. Among 100 postmenopausal women with a distal forearm fracture… CONTINUE READING
