The objective of this study is to estimate the short-and longterm direct health care costs of hip, spine, and forearm fractures occurring during the remaining lifetimes of white postmenopausal women and to provide a prototype for estimating avoided costs of fractures in future cost-effectiveness analyses.
A Markov model that uses population-based data and Monte Carlo simulations to estimate lifetime fracture risk, fracture-related functional impairment, and fracture-related costs for cohorts of individuals while controlling for competing causes of functional impairment and, hence, long-term costs is presented.
Five cohorts of 10,000 women, each of a different age group, were simulated to obtain estimates of remaining lifetime fractures, functional impairment, and costs.
