Abstract

A guidance on the assessment and treatment of postmenopausal women at risk from fractures due to osteoporosis was recently published in Osteoporosis International as a joint effort of the International Osteoporosis Foundation and European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (Kanis et al. in Osteoporos Int https://doi.org/10.1007/s00198-018-4704-5, 2018). This manuscript updates the previous guidelines document, published in 2013 (Kanis et al. in Osteoporos Int 24:23–57, 2013) and is written in a European perspective. The present article reports and summarizes the main recommendations included in this 2018 guidance document.
