    Atypical Femoral Fractures during Prolonged Use of Bisphosphonates: Short-Term Responses to Strontium Ranelate and Teriparatide

    The aim of this study was to report on the results of three cases of what were considered atypical femoral fractures, associated with bisphosphonate use, and their responses to therapy with strontium ranelate and teriparatide. The authors found that both teriparatide and strontium ranelate produced a rapid bone anabolic effect on unhealed atypical fractures.
