A mRUS Validation Study for Nail-treated Fractures of Long Bones and a TUS Exploratory Study for Nail and Plate-treated Fractures of Long Bones

Early intervention attempts to shorten protracted delayed union (DU) or prevent non-union (NU) fractures are hampered by lack of validated quantitative assessment tools for bone fracture healing during normal and delayed healing processes (Morshed et al,2014; Marsh et al, 1998). In actual practice, sequential X-rays usually follow a pre-determined time interval in pa...

Relationships Among Body Mass Index, Body Balance and Bone Mineral Density in Postmenopausal Women

Body composition, bone mineral density (BMD), and body balance are important factors that threaten postural control. They act as vital elements in the vicious circle that leads to fracture occurrence in elderly population, particularly postmenopausal women.

Why Still in Hospital After Hip Fracture Surgery?

At our institution, hip fracture patients are admitted and treated according to a fast track patient pathway. The aim of this study is to identify areas of this patient pathway that can be improved. To achieve this, the study will investigate the underlying reasons for the continued need for hospitalization on the consecutive days after hip fracture surgery.

Spinal Infection Management With Structural Allograft

Background. Bone infections can involve the vertebral column, intervertebral disc space, spinal canal and soft tissues, can generate neurological deficit in addition to the destruction of the bone that causes functional disability. Vertebral osteomyelitis is the most frequent, affecting 2 to 7 patients per 100,000 habitants. Management is bone debridement and bone reconstru...

Treatment With a Spinal Orthosis Compared to Equipment Group Training and a Control Group

Background: Back pain and osteoporosis with vertebral fractures are common conditions in elderly women and significantly affect their quality of life. A common complication of osteoporosis are vertebral fractures. Treatment with bone-specific drugs does often not help the pain condition caused by the vertebral fractures even when the progress of the disease has decreased. V...

Oligopin Supplementation and Bone Turnover Markers and Antioxidant Changes in Postmenopausal Osteopenic Women

Osteoporosis fractures impose a significant economic burden on the health system. There is evidence that osteoporosis has a high prevalence in Iran (4.8% for men and 7.7% for women), and the frequency of osteopenia is 36.8% for men and 39.3% for women in Iran Accordingly, the prevention of osteopenia progression towards osteoporosis has been considered as an important issue...

Characteristics and Mechanism of Denosumab-treated Giant Cell Tumor of Bone

Giant cell tumor of bone (GCTb) is a primary, osteolytic, benign tumor of the bone. Surgery is the commonly used treatment. Discovery of RANKL and its human monoclonal antibody, denosumab, led to use of denosumab for treatment of GCT. The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical and pathological results of treatment of relapsed or refractoriness GCT with denosumab and to ...

Contribution of Stereography (EOS Imaging System) in the Quantification of Femoral Shaft Fractures.

This observational study is a collection of clinical and imaging data of patients with a femoral shaft fracture treated by nails. The aim of this research is the contribution of the EOS imaging system in the quantification of malunions.

Bone Microstructure by Using HR-pQCT in Long Courses After Gastrectomy

Osteoporosis after gastrectomy, which is characterized by both the loss of bone mass and the deterioration of bone architecture, is a serious complication in the long course after gastrectomy. The aim of the present study was to evaluate osteoporosis by using high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HR-pQCT) in the long course after gastrectomy. In total...

Distal Radius Buckle Fracture Follow up Study

We will be enrolling children with distal radius buckle fractures, treating them with a removable splint and randomizing them to follow up as needed vs required follow up with a primary care physician 1-2 weeks after the ED visit.

Hip Fracture Exercise and Rehabilitation Post Hip Fracture Study

This pilot study will look at whether it is possible to give better physical therapy to people with cognitive limitations who have had a hip fracture.

Bone Healing Study

The aim of the research is to identify structural tissue changes in the early fracture hematomas.

Ultrasound Assessment of Gastric Contents in Fasted Elderly Patients With Hip Fracture

Evaluation of gastric contents in fasted elderly patients with hip fracture. The gastric contents will be examined by using ultrasonography in fasted elderly patients scheduled for hip fracture surgery. The primary outcome is the number of patients with stomach contents, and the secondary outcome is the component of residual gastric contents.

Effect of Mechanical Loading With PTH on Cortical Bone

Clinical trial to investigate effect of voluntary upper extremity loading in combination with anabolic osteoporosis therapy.

Clinical Trial in Antiaggregated Patients With Proximal Femur Fracture Evaluating a Strategy to Shorten Time Until Surgery

National, randomized, open, parallel, multicenter clinical trial of two comparison groups that will evaluate the feasibility of a strategy based on a diagnostic test to shorten the surgery time in antiaggregated patients with proximal femur fracture. The experimental group will undergo surgery as soon as platelet aggregability, according to the PLATELETWORKS® method is co...

Improving Balance Through Balance Exercise

Today most fracture prevention measures targets the bone and osteoporosis. However, only about 20% of individuals with fractures have osteoporosis and at least 90% of all fractures are caused by a fall. Therefore, the present project builds on previous findings from our group identifying postural sway as an important risk factor for falls and aims to intervene against this ...

The Effect of High Impact Exercise on Bone and Articular Cartilage in Post-menopausal Women

Osteoarthritis (OA) and osteoporosis (OP) affect large numbers of the population. Around 8 million people in the UK are affected by OA and over 300,000 people present with fragility fractures in the UK each year. High impact exercise has been shown to improve markers of bone health but the effect of this exercise on the cartilage is less well understood. A six month, one le...

GA/Spinal vs. GA/Spinal/NMB for Operative Repair of Hip Fracture

Surgical repair of hip fractures may be performed with various anesthetic techniques, but are most commonly completed under general anesthesia (GA) or neuraxial anesthesia (NA). Numerous prospective and retrospective studies demonstrate improved morbidity and mortality when NA is used; however, many surgeons prefer the use of GA with neuromuscular blockade (NMB) due to the ...

Normative Database for HR-pQCT-Based Radius and Tibia Strength

A novel methodology was recently developed and validated by the applicants to compute bone strength at the distal radius and tibia using second-generation HR-pQCT reconstructions. The methodology is expected to improve significantly the assessment of bone fracture risk in idiopathic and secondary osteoporosis, but no reference data and no reproducibility data are available....

Knee Osteoarthritis Outcome Measures in Arthritic Patients With Osteoporosis

The purpose of this study is to generate proof of concept human data by evaluating osteoarthritis outcome measures in arthritic patients that are prescribed Forteo® as the standard of care to treat their primary diagnosis of osteoporosis.

The Effect of Supplementation of Vitamin D Deficiency in Older People With Acute Hip Fracture:

This study will be done to evaluate the effect of load dose of vitamin D compared to the dose of usual clinical practice, in improving mobility and reducing disability in older people following a hip fracture.

Pediatric Femur Fracture Registry

Prospective data collection and evaluation of complete data sets will be performed in the course of routine clinical care of a cohort of consecutive patients (children up to 16 years old) presenting with an isolated femur shaft fracture.

Do Bisphosphonates Alter the Skeletal Response to Mechanical Stimulation in Children With Osteogenesis Imperfecta?

Osteogenesis Imperfecta(OI) is an inherited disorder characterised by extreme fragility of the bones. Bones often break from little or no apparent cause. Current available medicine can increase bone strength by making bones wider and "filling in" the holes in the bone walls that weaken it. These medicines are bisphosphonates, given either by a drip intravenously (eg pamidr...

The Association Between Preoperative Sepsis and the Mortality After Hip Fracture Surgery

The worldwide occurrence of hip fracture is high with an annual incidence of approximately 100 per 100.000 people(1). Mortality for patients undergoing hip fracture surgery is high with a 30-day mortality rate varying between 4.5 and 13.3 %(2-4). It is agreed that non-modifiable factors such as age, gender and pre-existing comorbidities contribute to early death of hip frac...
