Abstract

Osteoporosis is a common disease in elderly, characterized by poor bone quality as a result of alterations affecting trabecular bone. However, recent studies have described also an important role of alterations of cortical bone in the physiopathology of osteoporosis. Although dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is a valid method to assess bone mineral density, in the presence of comorbidities real bone fragility is unable to be evaluated. The number of hip fractures is rising, especially in people over 85 years old.
