ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implications of bisphosphonate usage in prevention of fractures in post menopausal women suffering from osteoporosis. It is mentioned that the results of bisphosphonate infusion is similar to that of oral consumption of bisphosphonates therefore oral treatment would reduce the cost of the treatment. The long term use of bisphosphonates has been a matter of concern as its deposition increases the bone density without increasing bone volume.
