Abstract/Description: Calcitonin has been shown to improve acute pain at rest in patients with osteoporotic vertebral fractures, when compared with placebo, and reduce the use of other analgesic medications (SOR A, based on a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials [RCTs]). However, calcitonin is not superior to placebo in patients with hip fracture who have undergone surgical repair. (SOR B, based on an RCT.)
