Abstract
BACKGROUND: To compare the frequency of high-risk osteoporotic fracture in patients with knee OA (OA) using the fracture risk assessment tool (FRAX) and the bone mineral density (BMD).
METHODS: We retrospectively assessed 282 Korean patients with knee OA who visited five medical centers and 1165 healthy controls (HCs) aged >/=50 years without knee OA. After matching for age, sex, and body mass index, 478 subjects (239 patients with knee OA and 239 HCs) were included.
RESULTS: Based on the BMD, the frequency of osteoporosis was 40.2% in patients with knee OA and 36.4% in HCs. The predicted mean FRAX major osteoporotic fracture probabilities calculated with or without femur neck BMD differed significantly between the knee OA and HCs (6.9 +/- 3.8% versus 6.1 +/- 2.8%, p = 0.000 and 8 +/- 3.6% versus 6.8 +/- 2.3%, p < 0.001, respectively). The mean FRAX hip fracture probabilities calculated with or without femur neck BMD differed significantly in the knee OA and HCs (2.1 +/- 2.4% versus 1.7 +/- 1.8%, p = 0.006 and 3 +/- 2.3% versus 2.4 +/- 1.6%, p < 0.001, respectively).
CONCLUSION: Our study suggests that FRAX may have a clinical impact on treatment decisions to reduce osteoporotic facture in patients with knee OA.
