Journal Title
Objectives:We aimed to examine clinical efficacy of Korean FRAX model with respect to prediction of osteoporotic fracture risk and eligibility of osteoporosis treatment in Korean patients with hip fractures.

Materials and Methods: In 41 elderly patients with a proximal femoral fracture (mean age=78.7 years, range: 63~99 years), fracture probabilities were calculated using FRAX models from Korea and Japan. We then performed comparative analyses between ten-year probabilities of major / hip osteoporotic fractures and the osteoporosis treatment eligibilities based on the FRAX model from Korea and Japan.

Results:The mean ten-year probabilities of major osteoporotic fractures and hip fractures using the Korean FRAX model (11.5% and 5.9%, respectively) were significantly lower than those using the Japanese FRAX model (21.5% and 9.2%, respectively, P<0.001). In addition, based on the National Osteoporosis Foundation guideline, pharmacological treatment of osteoporosis would be recommended in 38 patients (92.7%) by the Japanese FRAX model, while only in 30 patients (73.2%) by the Korean FRAX model (P= 0.037).

Conclusions:Our results suggest that the Korean FRAX model might underestimate osteoporotic fracture probabilities and eligibility of osteoporosis treatment in Korean patients with hip fracture.
