Abstract

The present meta-analysis synthesized evidence from 10 articles encompassing 28 independent studies to verify the association between hypertension and osteoporotic fracture risk in women and men. Our results indicate that the risk of osteoporotic fracture among individuals with hypertension was higher than that among individuals without hypertension. Epidemiological studies have suggested that hypertension is related to osteoporotic fracture. However, discrepancies exist in the reported findings. In this study, a systematic review of relevant published articles was conducted to verify the association between hypertension and osteoporotic fracture risk in women and men. PubMed (1953_October 5th, 2016) and Embase (1974_October 5th, 2016) were systematically searched for relevant articles. Odds ratios (ORs) and confidence intervals (CIs) were derived using random effect models. Categorical, subgroup, heterogeneity, publication bias, and meta-regression analyses were conducted. We analyzed 10 articles encompassing 28 independent studies, 1,430,431 participants, and 148,048 osteoporotic fracture cases. The risk of osteoporotic fracture among individuals with hypertension was higher (pooled OR = 1.33, 95% CI 1.25-1.40; I (2) = 72.3%, P < 0.001) than that among individuals without hypertension. The association between hypertension and fracture risk was slightly stronger in women (pooled OR = 1.52, 95% CI 1.30-1.79) than in men (pooled OR = 1.35, 95% CI 1.26-1.44). Studies conducted in Asia revealed results that were consistent with those of studies performed in Europe. Hypertension is associated with osteoporotic fracture risk. However, the biological mechanisms underlying the effect of hypertension on osteoporotic fracture remain to be elucidated.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 13 May 2017.
All research outputs
#5,660,408
of 9,957,452 outputs
Outputs from Osteoporosis International
#1,249
of 2,169 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#145,761
of 263,058 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Osteoporosis International
#46
of 68 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,957,452 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,169 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.1. This one is in the 41st percentile – i.e., 41% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,058 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 68 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
