Introduction: Due to the ‘greying’ of (industrialized) societies the incidence of osteoporosis and fragility fractures is expected to be increasing. Our aim was to investigate in an elderly population if the incidence of non-vertebral fractures (overall and site specific) has changed after a longer follow-up, and its relation with osteoporosis or osteopenia assessed by bone mineral density (BMD) at baseline.Methods: Incident non-vertebral fract...
