Clinical value of prognostic instruments to identify patients with an increased risk for osteoporotic fractures: systematic review


Steurer, J; Haller, C; Häuselmann, H J; Brunner, F; Bachmann, L M (2011). Clinical value of prognostic instruments to identify patients with an increased risk for osteoporotic fractures: systematic review. PLoS ONE, 6(5):e19994.

Abstract

There is a plethora of evidence available studying the association of risk profiles and the development of osteoporotic fractures. The small number of out-of-sample validations, the large variety of study characteristics, outcomes and follow-up periods impedes from deriving robust summaries and from conclusions regarding the clinical performance of many tools. First and foremost, future activity in this field should aim at reaching a consensus among clinical experts in respect to the existing instruments. Then we call for careful validations and expedient adaptations for local circumstances of the most promising candidates.
