Overall, one out of every two women and one in eight men over 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture
in his or her lifetime, with American women four times more likely to develop the disease than men.
caused by skin rupture occurs when the surface of the film is stretched too quickly on leaving the die.

Osteoporosis is often called a "silent disease," because many people don't know they have it until their bones become so weak that a sudden strain, bump, or fall causes a fracture
This is the first drug to be approved by the FDA for DVT prevention after hip fracture
Models that use fractals to simulate the presence of fractures
in porous rock may provide better answers than those that assume the rock is uncracked.
Observations have led to a host of interpretations about the particular geologic processes responsible for the stresses that induce fracture
The following parameters are used to describe the fracture
occurs only rarely, usually at the lower end of the tibia, one of the long bones of the lower leg.
6) were the first to derive an expression for the threshold (equilibrium, lower limit) fracture
and fluoridation in Utah's elderly population.
caused by repeated jarring of a bone are called stress fractures
High efficiency is achieved by performing multiple fractures
in a single pumping session, thereby ensuring time and cost savings.
Distal radius fracture
is known to be associated with osteoporosis in women of this age, who are then at increased risk of subsequent fracture
10, 12) The distribution of C2 fracture
consists of odontoid 59%, hangman's 22%, and nonodontoid, nonhangman's fractures
