Au cours de cet e-learning, le Pr Bruyère et le Pr Gielen abordent la prise en charge de l’ostéoporose fracturaire (ostéoporose sévère) chez la femme ménopausée. Il est désormais établi que cette population de patientes ayant déjà présenté une fracture ostéoporotique est à très haut risque de présenter une nouvelle fracture.
Le Pr Bruyère expose les dernières recommandations concernant les différentes approches thérapeutiques en fonction du risque de fracture, mettant en avant le changement de paradigme pour le traitement des patientes à très haut risque de fracture, ainsi que les outils permettant d’évaluer le risque de fracture.
Le Pr Gielen présente une option thérapeutique récente pour la prise en charge de l’ostéoporose sévère chez la femme ménopausée et met l’accent sur l’importance de la séquence de traitement.
