Bone Mineral Density as a Predictor of Subsequent Wrist Fractures: Findings from the Women’s Health Initiative Study

J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2015 Sep 14:jc20152568. [Epub ahead of print]

CONCLUSIONS: Lumbar spine and femoral neck BMD were associated with incident wrist fracture, but the FRAX threshold recommended to identify screening candidates did not identify the majority of women who subsequently experienced wrist fracture. Improved understanding of determinants of wrist fractures is warranted.
