Key Words The World Health Organization fracture risk assessment tool; Osteoporosis; Fracture; Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry
Core Tip Treatment of osteoporosis should assure that the patient benefits from the treatment without experiencing undue harm. Monitoring of patients treated for osteoporosis has been recommended and so far dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry has been recognized as the tool to monitor osteoporosis therapy by several clinical practice guidelines. Recently, the duration of osteoporosis therapy became a research question with the possibility of having a drug holiday. However, more research is still needed to adequately assess when to stop the osteoporosis therapy and what is the optimal duration of the drug holiday. This work was carried out aiming at determining whether the World Health Organization fracture risk assessment tool can be used as a tool to monitor patients receiving osteoporosis treatment and to evaluate its ability to predict new low trauma fractures.
