For how many years is there an increased risk of ONJ after 100 mg x 4 infusions (over 10 days) of a bisphosphonate (Neridronate or similar)?

It is low: I do not have a specific number for you, your case, and your medication but the chance of it occurring is very low. And part depends why you were taking it. It also depends on whether we're going to have other infusions. It also occurs over the amount of time you have the infusions.
