A population sample of 27,000 Finnish women and 30,000 men was studied for the presence of a thoracic vertebral fracture.
In both sexes, the prevalence of such fractures increased with age: after 40 years of age in the men and after 55 years of age in the women.
The interaction of sex and age was significant, and even when the other determinants were adjusted for.
In the women aged 35-44, 55-64, and 75 years or more, the prevalence per 1,000 was respectively 2.4, 5.1, and 29, and in the men in the corresponding age groups 5.2, 15, and 28.
