Abstract

With spine radiographs from two epidemiological studies conducted in Hong Kong and in Rome (MsOS[Hong Kong] study and Roman Osteoporosis Prevention Project), we recently compared radiographic OVF (osteoporotic vertebral fracture) prevalence in age-matched elderly Chinese women and Italian Caucasian women (both n = 200 cases and mean age = 74.1 years, data 1). Results showed a much lower prevalence and severity of radiographic OVF in Hong Kong subjects than in Italian subjects [. Though these results are consistent with other indings such as, compared with Caucasians, Chinese have a much lower hip fragility fracture rate and a much lower clinical spine fragility fracture rate, and OVFs among Chinese progress slower, there are still considerations that our radiographic OVF results were based on a single study with relatively small sample size. To partially address these concerns, we analyzed additional radiological evidence and present them in this letter.
