Authors' objectives:

To assess cost-utility of the most employed pharmacological treatments in Spain for the prevention of bone fractures in osteoporotic post-menopausal Spanish women.

Authors' recomendations: In comparison with calcium and vitamin D, or placebo, treating with alendronate, risedronate, ibandronate, raloxifene or strontium ranelate is not efficient for the prevention of bone fractures in osteoporotic post-menopausal Spanish women when they start treatment before the age of 69. However, if women start treatment at an age of 69 or above, alendronate would be efficient.
