Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Femoral Neck Fractures
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
Evaluation Studies As Topic
Studies determining the effectiveness or value of processes, personnel, and equipment, or the material on conducting such studies. For drugs and devices, CLINICAL TRIALS AS TOPIC; DRUG EVALUATION; and DRUG EVALUATION, PRECLINICAL are available.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
Nursing Evaluation Research
Research carried out by nurses that uses interviews, data collection, observation, surveys, etc., to evaluate nursing, health, clinical, and nursing education programs and curricula, and which also demonstrates the value of such evaluation.
A detailed review and evaluation of selected clinical records by qualified professional personnel to improve the quality of patient care and outcomes. The clinical audit was formally introduced in 1993 into the United Kingdom's National Health Service.
Femur fractures are a common injury in the Pediatric population. Despite their high incidence little do we know about the long term implications on the bones' length. Our main goal is to...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the rate of fracture healing and fracture union, repaired with the LISS device, will be as good as or better than the usual fracture fixat...
Doctors are studying an investigational treatment to be used during the vertebroplasty procedure when treating vertebral compression fractures (spine fractures) that may help to reduce pai...
Hip fractures are usually classified according to their X-ray as subcapital, pertrochanteric. We examine hip fractures with ultrasound in order to characterize the fractures with several p...
This is an observational study aiming to study the prevalence and risk factors for osteoporosis and vertebral fractures in patients with ankylosing spondylitis attending three Rheumatology...
Background and purpose There is considerable uncertainty about the optimal treatment of displaced 4-part fractures of the proximal humerus. Within the last decade, locking plate technology has been co...
PURPOSE: To report risk factors, 1-year and overall risk for a contralateral hip and other osteoporosis-related fractures in a hip fracture population. METHODS: An observational study on 1,229 consecu...
We examined variations in proportions of hip fractures and major fractures among postmenopausal women using the Global Longitudinal Study of Osteoporosis in Women (GLOW). The proportion of major fract...
This observational study showed that after 2 years, both risedronate and alendronate lowered the risk of hip and nonvertebral fractures compared with patients filling in a single bisphosphonate presc...
The objective was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of conventional radiography and ultrasonography (US) for the diagnosis of suspected bone fractures.
