[en] Summary: Osteoporosis represents a significant and increasing healthcare burden in Europe, but most patients at increased risk of fracture do not receive medication, resulting in a large
treatment gap. Identification of patients who are at particularly high risk will help clinicians target appropriate treatment more precisely and cost-effectively, and should be the focus of future research.
Introduction: The purpose of the study was to review data on the identification and treatment of patients with osteoporosis at increased risk of fracture.
Methods: Aworking group convened by the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis met to review current data on the epidemiology
and burden of osteoporosis and the patterns of medical management throughout Europe.
