Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to describe the imaging features of proximal femoral insufficiency fractures in patients on long-term bisphosphonate therapy. CONCLUSION. The imaging findings of bisphosphonate- related femoral insufficiency fractures, which include a typical proximal diaphyseal location and transverse liner radiolucency through localized thickening of the lateral cortex, allow a specific diagnosis.
