Hip Protector for Prevention of Hip Fracture
This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of the investigators PSU hip protector for prevention of fracture in elderly.The eligible patients include those with previous diagnosed as unilateral hip fracture. They will be randomized into 2 groups;psu hip protector and no protector. The patients will be instructed to wear the protector fulltime.The inceidence of hip fracture will be compared between both group at the end of 1 year.

the deleterious changes in body composition that occur during the year after hip fracture are associated with increased disability, recurrent fracture, and mortality. While the majority of these unfav...
Fracture-dislocation of the hip associated with fracture of the femoral neck and intrapelvic intrusion of the femoral head is a rare injury. In this case we performed open reduction for the femoral ne...
Only little is known when talking about the evolution of a vertebral fracture. From the few studies available in the literature, we can deduce that the risk a vertebral compression fracture has to wor...
