Variation in Fracture Risk Estimation Among East Asian Women
Fracture prediction tools for East Asian individuals vary by country. In the United States, the US-Asian Fracture Risk Assessment Tool provides hip fracture probabilities that correspond to observed estimates.
Trends in Bisphosphonate Initiation Within an Integrated Healthcare Delivery System
The authors observed a marked shift toward treatment of higher-risk subsets of younger postmenopausal women (with prior fracture and/or with osteoporosis), and away from women at lower risk.
Racial and Ethnic Differences in Hip Fracture Outcomes in Men
Racial and ethnic differences in hip fracture incidence and mortality outcome were observed within a diverse population of older men, with lower rates of both among Asians.
Mortality Following Hip Fracture in Chinese, Japanese, and Filipina Women
One-year mortality following hip fracture in Asian American women is comparable among Chinese, Japanese, and Filipina women, comprising nearly three-fourths of the Asian population examined.
Trends in Mortality Following Hip Fracture in Older Women
Within an integrated healthcare setting, temporal trends demonstrate reductions in mortality risk after hip fracture in older women, with mortality risk lower for Asians and Hispanics.
Fracture Risk Tool Validation in an Integrated Healthcare Delivery System
The FORE Fracture Risk Calculator provided rapid assessment of population hip fracture risk with some underestimation compared with observed hip fracture probabilities.
