Similarities and differences between sexes in regional loss of cortical and trabecular bone in the mid-femoral neck: the AGES-Reykjavik longitudinal study.

Abstract:

The risk of hip fracture rises rapidly with age, and is notably higher in women. After falls and prior fragility fractures, the main clinically recognized risk factor for hip fracture is reduced bone density. To better understand the extent to which femoral neck density and structure change with age in each sex, we carried out a longitudinal study in subjects not treated with agents known to influence bone mineral density (BMD), to investigate changes in regional cortical thickness, as well a...
