Summary
BACKGROUND: Although 25% of men over the age of 60 will sustain osteoporotic fractures during their lifetime, data suggest that male osteoporosis is underdiganosed [sic] and undertreated. In order to help inform decisions about whether the Veterans Health Administration should develop screening guidelines for male osteoporosis, summaries of what is known about (1) the epidemiology of male osteoporosis, and (2) the validity of tools to screen and diagnose male osteoporosis are needed. The Key Questions were: Key Question 1. What are the prevalence of and risk factors for osteopenia, osteoporosis and osteoporotic fractures among men in general and among male Veterans specifically? Key Question 2. Are there any validated tools (outside of central bone density) to screen for osteoporosis in men? Key Question 3. What values of BMD determined by Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) (and by different DXA techniques) have been used to diagnose osteopenia and osteoporosis; and what is the evidence regarding the relationship between differing definitions and the development of osteoporotic fractures? METHODS: We searched PubMed from 1990-2006 using standard search terms. Titles, abstracts, and articles were reviewed in duplicate by physicians trained in the critical analysis of literature. Data were extracted by quantitative analysts. Pooled analyses were performed for the comparison of either calcaneal ultrasound or the Osteoporosis Screening Tool compared to central DXA; all other data were narratively summarized. RESULTS: We screened 564 titles and performed a more detailed review on 378 articles. From this, we identified 173 articles that addressed risk factors for osteoporosis, 27 articles that addressed diagnostic tools, and 31 articles about differing DXA levels and fracture risk. We identified an older high quality meta-analysis of risk factors for osteoporosis. Of the risk factors assessed in this review that the authors classified as something other than high risk, VA policymakers selected alcohol use, diabetes mellitus type II, and spinal cord injury as the factors for assessment in this review.
