Histories including number of falls may improve risk prediction for certain non-vertebral fractures in older men.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To determine whether information on number of falls on a falls history screen predicts risk of non-vertebral and hip fracture. METHODS A cohort of 5995 community-dwelling men aged 65 years and older (mean 73.7) was followed over 7.2 years for incident non-vertebral fractures. Cox proportional hazard models were used to calculate hazard ratios… (More)
