Osteoporosis and radial head fractures in female patients: a case-control study
Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery, 06/15/2012
Kaas L et al. – This study confirms that radial head fractures in women aged ≥50years are potentially osteoporotic fractures. Offering these patients a bone mineral density (BMD) measurement may prevent future osteoporotic fractures, such as hip and spine fractures.
