Abstract

Osteoporosis is a systemic disorder characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. It has a significant impact on public health through the increased morbidity, mortality, and economic costs associated with fractures. The most common fracture sites are hip, spine and distal forearm. Among the different types of, the clinical and economic impact of hip and vertebral fractures have received most attention. There has been growing evidence, however, to suggest that the personal and public burden of fractures at other sites, including distal radius fracture, may have been underrecognized. This review will focus on the consequences of the Cinderella of the osteoporotic fractures – the distal radius fracture.
