    Article, Congrès - En anglais

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

    The relationship between osteoarthritis and osteoporosis (hip fracture) was studied using the data from the MEDOS study, a large prospective epidemiological study of femoral neck fracture patients and age-matched controls in the Mediterranean area.

    Osteoarthritis was found to be protective against hip fracture in both men and women, with a significant reduction of the relative risk factor for osteoporosis (relative risk=0.48 and 0.68, respectively, p<0.001).
