UNLABELLED In this large cohort of elderly women, prior non-spine non-hip fractures and radiographic vertebral deformities >10 years old were modestly associated with incident hip fracture, but the excess risks of hip fracture attributable to those prior fractures and deformities seem to wane over time. INTRODUCTION Whereas prior clinical fractures and prevalent radiographic vertebral deformities are well-documented predictors of incident hip fracture, the excess risks of incident fractures… CONTINUE READING
