We describe a prospective study in which bone mineral density (BMD) was measured in total body and regions, proximal femur, lumbar spine, and forearm in 84 apparently normal postmenopausal women with normal spinal radiographs and in 47 women with 1-10 wedged or compressed vertebrae. There was a history of peripheral fracture in 35 of the 84 controls and 30 of the 47 osteoporotics (p < 0.02) but there was no association between vertebral fracture and wrist fracture. At all sites and regions, the… CONTINUE READING
