Abstract

INTRODUCTION - Studies suggest that Colles' fracture is the earliest of the osteoporotic fractures, and thus may be the first indication of the disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS - Fifty-seven consecutive patients with Colles' fracture who presented between 1 st of October 2003 and 1st of February 2004 at the traumatology out-patient clinic of Semmelweis Hospital, Kiskunhalas were screened for osteoporosis. RESULTS - Of the 43 postmenopausal women, 41 was found to have osteoporosis by DEXA scan, but only one was aware of her disease and received treatment. Out of these 41 patients 15 had fractures previously, 9 of whom had more than one. None of the four premenopausal women had osteoporotic DEXA measurement values. All of the 10 male patients had osteoporosis, 6 had previous fractures, 5 of them more then once. One patient required surgery, there was a prolonged fracture healing in 10 cases, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy developed in 3 patients. CONCLUSION - Since in this study more than 95% of postmenopausal women with Colles' fracture had underlying osteoporosis, the authors conclude that DEXA scanning of these patients is recommended. Based on the results, it seems that screening for osteoporosis is indicated for both men and women after radius fracture.
