Osteoporosis is an increasing problem in western countries where life-expectancy increases and new disorders emerge as the body copes with longer life. In particular, osteoporosis is a problem for the older woman. This book draws on a distinguished international team which has identified 200 recent papers in the peer-reviewed literature which should modify the practice of the physician managing the osteoporotic patient. Each paper is summarized, reviewed and placed in clinical context. Not only are the underlying causes of osteoporosis reviewed but also the latest differing views on prevention and non-pharmacological strategies, alongside a detailed review of the latest drugs and the possibilities of further pharmaceutical advances. The Year in Osteoporosis will provide many different doctors, in particular rheumatologists, gynaecologists, general hospital physicians and GPs with a comprehensive overview of the latest clinical research, carefully assessed and put into context by an expert panel of authors.
