Abstract

Osteoporotic fragility fractures are a significant cause of morbidity for the geriatric population. One third of women and one fifth of men over 50 will sustain a fragility fracture in their lifetime [1]. In the United States alone, this adds up to an estimated 2 million fractures each year [1]. These numbers are expected to rise in future years as the baby boomer generation advances in age. Conservative estimates have the number of osteoporotic hip fractures increasing from 330,000 yearly (at present) to 550,000 by 2040 [2,3].
