    Article - En anglais

    There are population differences in hip fractures between the East and West.

    The hip fracture incidence in Asians is approximately 40% to 50% of that in whites in the United States.

    There also are differences in body measurements and bone mass between the population groups.

    This article discusses the role of body measurements in relation to bone mass and bone loss at different stages of life and the interrelationship of these variables with fracture risks.
