Özet

Background: The underlying mechanism by which osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease may be linked is not fully understood. However studies mainly focused on the association between bone mineral density (BMD) and cardiovascular risk factors or atherosclerosis itself by only assessing the presence of vascular calcification. In this study we aimed to evaluate both cardiovascular risk factors, and presence of coronary artery disease (CAD) in post-menopausal women patients with and without low BMD.
