Table 3 Subsequent Fracture in the Teriparatide and Control Groups during the 12-month Follow-up

From: Effects of teriparatide on cementless bipolar hemiarthroplasty in patients with osteoporotic femoral neck fractures

Parameters Group A Group B p value
N = 52 N = 40
Subsequent fracture
 Vertebral fracture 4 (7.7 %) 2 (5.0 %) 0.470
 Hip fracture 1 (1.9 %) 1 (2.5 %) 0.683
 Wrist fracture 2 (3.8 %) 2 (5.0 %) 0.587
 Overall subsequent fractures 7 (13.5 %) 5 (12.5 %) 0.574
  1. Group A: patients without supplementary pharmacologic treatment
  2. Group B: patients treated with teriparatide
  3. The values are given as the n (%)
  4. p-values for between-group comparisons were determined by the chi-squared test and Fisher’s exact test
  5. *Statistically significant (p < 0.05)
