Vertebral fracture in postmenopausal Chinese women: a population-based study
ConclusionThis study is from a true random sample of postmenopausal women in urban China with high response rate. The prevalence of vertebral fractures in postmenopausal women in Beijing increases from 13% under age 60 to over 50% by age 80 years. A model with seven clinical risk factors with or without BMD is better than simple models and may guide the use of spine x-rays to identify women with vertebral fractures. More than half an hour of outdoor activity might correlate with lower risk of vertebral fracture in this population.
(The Endocrine Society) The Endocrine Society today announced an update to its osteoporosis Clinical Practice Guideline to include recommendations for romosozumab, a new medication that was approved last year to treat postmenopausal women at high risk of fracture.

In this study, we examined whether subjective social status was associated with incident frailty. Data were obtained from a 14-year cohort of Chinese men and women (N = 694) aged 65 years and older who participated in the MrOs study—a longitudinal study on osteoporosis and general health in Hong Kong. Subjective social status at baseline (2001–2003) was assessed using a 10-rung self-anchoring scale. Incident frailty at the 14-year follow-up (2015–2017) was defined as proposed by Fried and colleagues. Ordinal logistic regressions were used to examine the association between subjective social st...

(Natural News) Calcium and vitamin D are essential for boosting your bone health. But did you know that there are guidelines for supplementation if you are female and have osteoporosis? Postmenopausal women who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or are at risk of the condition require calcium and vitamin D. In a study for The Women’s Health...
AbstractVertebral fractures are important indicators of osteoporosis. Fractures with partial collapse of vertebral bodies are referred to as vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) that are usually non-traumatic in nature. Some common causes of VCFs are trauma, bone failure related to osteoporosis (benign) and metastatic cancer (malignant). This paper aims at developing a system for computer-aided diagnosis to help in the detection, labeling and segmentation of lumbar vertebral body (VB) and to further classify each VB into normal, malignant and benign VCFs. After the initial preprocessing, morphological, shape and angular ...
