Calcification des grandes artères et risque de fracture ostéoporotique [Aortic calcification and the risk of osteoporotic fractures].
Revue Médicale Suisse
Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article
Osteoporosis and atherosclerosis seem to be epidemiologically correlated. Several medical conditions are risk factors for both osteoporosis and atheromatosis (i.e. age, diabetes, end stage renal disease, sedentarity, smoking), but a common pathogenic link may be present beyond this. The burden of cardiovascular events and of osteoporotic fracture is considerable for the health care system in term of costs and resources. However, both diseases are rarely managed together. This article is a review of the recent studies in this new field.
