  1. Remark: Approximately 46% of all vertebral fracture cases in women were attributable to old age and low BMD, with the latter - low BMD - (31%) having more pronounced effect than the former. In men, 33% of the fracture cases were attributable to old age and low BMD, with the former - old age - (20%) having more effect than the latter.
