Abstract

The authors report the findings of densitometric analysis performed on 25 patients from of 70 to 90 years of age with fractures of the proximal femur. Although bone density decreased progressively with age, there was not a close correlation between bone density and fracture, as the latter occurred even when the densitometric values were relatively high for the patient's sex and age.
