The study emphasized that remaining life expectancy is substantial: 13 years for men aged 60 years and 22 years for women aged 60 years. The substantial life expectancy following a fracture exposes patients to increased risk of refracture, which is itself associated with elevated mortality risk. This underscores the need for evidence of sustained antifracture efficacy, a challenge facing us in the coming years.
