Hip fracture : assessment of fracture risk for treatment. Pharmaceutical treatment for patients with hip fracture.
Summary of "Hip fracture : assessment of fracture risk for treatment. Pharmaceutical treatment for patients with hip fracture."
It is well known that fracture risk, including second hip fracture, is elevated in patients with hip fracture. Therefore, they are good candidate for pharmaceutical treatment of osteoporosis to prevent subsequent fractures. Nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate is the first line drug for their treatment. Teriparatide, which has been recently approved in Japan for the treatment of osteoporosis, has osteogenic effects and is expected to prevent fractures in patients with hip fracture.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Directly Observed Therapy
A treatment method in which patients are under direct observation when they take their medication or receive their treatment. This method is designed to reduce the risk of treatment interruption and to ensure patient compliance.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
Incidence of hip fracture increases exponentially with age. Women had two times higher hip fracture incidence than men. Major risk factors for the hip fracture are age, sex, bone mineral density, and...
A high incidence of fractures, particularly of the hip, represents an important problem in patients with AD, who are prone to falls and may have osteoporosis. The odds ratio reported for fracture prev...
Risk assessment and communication of risk are essential components in the care of patients with osteoporosis. The risk of fracture in an untreated patient can be estimated with measurement of bone min...
