  • Abstract
  • Conclusion This study showed the association of DXA-derived measurements at lumbar spine with transcervical hip fractures. A strong association between vBMD at the posterior vertebral elements and transcervical hip fractures was observed, probably because of global deterioration of the cortical bone. Further studies should be carried out to investigate on the relative risk of transcervical fracture in patients with long-term cortical structural deterioration.
