The paper presents the results of the determination of bone mineral density (BMD) at the level of the axial skeleton in 72 postmenopausal women with fracture of the distal forearm bones in history. It is revealed that the BMD of the lumbar spine, proximal femur and femoral neck was significantly lower in the examined patients compared to apparently healthy age-matched women. The deficit in bone mass at the lumbar spine is 13 %, and at the level of the proximal femur — 16 %, while the average for the group, BMD in this area is within the normative values. The frequency of osteoporosis and osteopenia in patients with bone fractures of the distal forearm was significantly higher compared with those of the control group and according to T-test of the lumbar spine is respectively 18 and 7.3 %.
