The USA: People With Acute Calcium Pyrophosphate Face Doubled Risk for Fracture

Fracture risk is nearly doubled in individuals with acute calcium pyrophosphate (CPP) crystal arthritis, according to a study recently published in Arthritis & Rheumatology.

Sara K. Tedeschi, M.D., M.P.H., from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and colleagues compared fracture risks (humerus, wrist, hip, or pelvis) in 1,148 patients with acute CPP crystal arthritis (1991 to 2023) versus 3,730 matched controls.
