Abstract

The FRAX tool has been used to determine possible thresholds for therapeutic intervention; however, there are no FRAX-based intervention thresholds available for China, we proposed that the 10-year probability of major osteoporotic fracture and hip fracture of about 4.0 and 1.3%, respectively, may be acceptable intervention thresholds for central south Chinese postmenopausal women.
