INTRODUCTION Changes in hip structure and geometry during aging contribute to decreased bone strength. Little is known, however, about these characteristics at advanced age, when fragility fractures are common. We examined hip structural geometry in men and women of old age (72-84 years) and old-old age (85-96 years) to determine (1) gender differences; (2) whether or not these differences are consistent with the increased occurrence of hip fracture in elderly women, compared to men; and (3… CONTINUE READING
