Evaluation the Potential of the Austrian FRAX Model Use in Predicting the Risk for Osteoporotic Fractures in Ukrainian Women

V.V. Povoroznyuk, N.V. Grigoryeva


Currently FRAX is informative and independent tool in assessment of risk for osteoporotic fractures. In order to create normative data for Austrian FRAX model algorithm we have examined 3405 women aged 40–89 years. Analysis of FRAX results revealed that FRAX-all and FRAX-hip performance, respectively, 11.5 and 2.5 points when using the Austrian model in postmenopausal women are the criteria for initiation of therapy for osteoporosis. Indicators of FRAX-all and FRAX-hip respectively 7.0 and 1.5 points when using the Austrian model in postmenopausal women are additional criteria for additional examination of patients with two-photon X-ray densitometry.
We have developed criteria that can be used to make the decision to start antiosteoporotic therapy, especially if you can not carry out X-ray densitometry.
