    Hip fracture and the MEDOS study. Meeting. Lisbon (PRT), 1992/11/18.

    The Mediterranean osteoporosis (MEDOS) study was carried our in 14 centres from six countries in Southern Europe to determine the incidence rates and risk factors associated with hip fracture over the age of 50 years.

    This paper discusses both the validity and relevance of the data, that is, whether the number of collected cases of hip fracture and the size and age distribution of the population are representative of the population as a whole, and whether the incidence measures used in the study are suitable for comparing the risk of hip fracture between populations and for predicting future risk within populations.
