A recent position paper by a working group organized by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society on the Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis (ESCEO) defined the risk threshold for patients to be considered for available systemic and local treatments, including a Local Osteo-Enhancement Procedure (LOEP). The risk threshold varies by age and gender and can be determined using the FRAX risk assessment tool. The risk level of the potential treatment group for LOEP is the same as that being suggested for anabolic therapy. You can read more about the treatment selection algorithm here.
