Femoral neck bone loss predicts fracture risk independent of baseline BMD.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Whereas low BMD is known to be a risk factor for fracture, it is not clear whether loss of BMD is also a risk factor. In elderly women, greater loss of BMD at the femoral neck was associated with increased risk of fracture, independent of baseline BMD and age. INTRODUCTION Baseline measurement of BMD predicts fracture risk. However, it is not… (More)
