  • Details

The Year in Osteoporosis provides an overview of latest advances that will help ensure best practice in the prevention and management of this increasingly prevalent and costly disorder.

Osteoporosis has been the subject of a rapid growth in research over the past twenty years. Papers describing recent advances are published in a wide range of journals, reflecting the diversity of clinical and research specialties that are concerned with this disease.

The editors of this volume have brought together a multi-disciplinary team to select and critically appraise the important publications of the past eighteen months. Many journals have been scanned to provide the collection of key papers which are evaluated and linked in this book, giving the interested clinician a single volume to browse, and challenge, if necessary. Chapters are grouped around four key topics: epidemiology and pathophysiology, bone mass and measurement, management and prevention, and therapeutic issues. These groupings reflect the editors’ evaluation of the areas of greatest publication activity in the period covered.
