Development of a score to predict low-trauma fracture risk within 1 year after ischemic stroke

Takeaway

  • A score including risk factors associated with low-trauma fracture (LTF) following ischemic stroke (IS) predicts 1-year risk of LTF in IS patients at discharge.

Why this matters

    A fracture risk score that includes risk due to IS history could identify individuals at increased risk for LTF who may benefit from fracture-prevention interventions.
