Metabolic bone degeneration (osteoporosis) affects millions of people--primarily postmenopausal women--and is directly responsible for debilitating hip, vertebral, and limb fractures in the elderly. Incorporating advances made within just the past five years, The Osteoporotic Syndrome: Detection, Prevention, and Treatment serves as an up-to-date, practical guide to the major clinical aspects of osteoporosis. The text is liberally illustrated with detailed figures.
As a resource for the clinician dealing with metabolic bone degeneration, this book represents an excellent source of information on the diagnosis and day-to-day management of osteoporosis.
