Osteoporosis, a silent threat with significant clinical implications, especially in geriatric patients, demands a nuanced approach when comorbid cardiovascular risks are present. In this lunch symposium, we delve deep into the benefit-and-risk balance for patients at an elevated risk of fractures who also present with cardiovascular risk factors.
