Review:

Osteoporosis: Best Practice & Research Compendium - Edited by Cyrus Cooper & Anthony Woolf
Osteoporosis is increasingly being recognised as a major public health issue because of the associated morbidity, mortality, and economic cost. With the ageing of the population, the incidence of osteoporosis will continue to increase dramatically in the years to come. In this regard, attempts to improve the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of this disorder among physicians are welcome. This volume brings together updated reviews addressing several of these issues, including: innovations in risk assessment; the use of bone densitometry and biochemical markers; osteoporosis in men and among patients on glucocorticoids; advances in pharmacotherapy such as PTH analogues and strontium ranelate; non-pharmacologic interventions to reduce fracture risk; the cost-effectiveness of interventions for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. These reviews have been written by internationally recognised experts in the field and provide an excellent state-of-the-art which will be of great value to clinicians, policy makers and scientists alike. Highly recommended.
