Empirically Based Composite Fracture Prediction Model from the Global Longitudinal Study of Osteoporosis in Postmenopausal Women (GLOW).

After examining results for 10 different bone fracture sites, advanced age appeared the single best possibility for uniting several different sites, resulting in an empirically based composite fracture risk model.

Several fracture prediction models that combine fractures at different sites into a composite outcome are in current use. However, to the extent individual fracture sites have differing risk factor profiles, model discrimination is impaired.
