X-Ray Absorptiometry Indexes for Women in Postmenopausal Period with Osteoporotical Fractures

Article excerpt

Aim: To estimate structural and functional condition of bone in women in postmenopausal period with osteoporotic fractures, compare the results to referent data for Ukrainian population and to compare the results of X-ray absorptiometry to the fracture risk rate, assessed by FRAX for women in postmenopausal period with osteoporotical fractures.

Methods: Object. 39 women in postmenopausal period aged 50-89 years with forearm(18) and proximal hip(21) fractures, who were on treatment the Traumatology Department #1 of Lviv City Clinical Hospital of Ambulance. They were divided into 4 categories by age (50-59[13];60-69[12];70-79[9];80- 89[5]). Nordin Index was measured with the "Osteolog" workstation, developed in the Institute of Gerontology AMS Ukraine under the direction of Professor Povoroznyuk V.V. Fracture risks were estimated using FRAX.

Results: We found lower cortical indexes for women in postmenopausal period with osteoporotic fractures for 50-59(Common IN=0,41), 60- 69(Common IN=0,40), 70-79 (Common IN=0,36), 80-89(Common IN=0,33) age groups in comparison to referent data for Ukrainian population. …
