The problem of bone regeneration has engaged both physicians and scientists since the beginning of medicine. Not only can bone heal itself following most injuries, but when it does, the regenerated tissue is often indistinguishable from healthy bone. Problems arise, however, when bone does not heal properly, or when new tissue is needed, such as when two vertebrae are required to fuse to stabilize adjacent spine segments. Despite centuries of research, such procedures still require improved therapeutic meth...
Areal bone mineral density (aBMD) poorly identifies men at high fracture risk. Our aim was to assess prediction of fractures in men by bone microarchitectural measures. At baseline, 825 men aged 60-87 had the assessment of bone microarchitecture at distal radius and distal tibia by high resolution peripheral QCT (HR-pQCT, XtremeCT-I SCANCO). Bone strength was estimated by micro-finite element analysis. During the prospective 8-year follow-up, 105 men sustained fractures (59 vertebral fractures in 49 men, 70...
Neuroendocrinology of bone is a new area of research based on the evidence that pituitary hormones may directly modulate bone remodeling and metabolism. Skeletal fragility associated with high risk of fractures is a common complication of several pituitary diseases such as hypopituitarism, Cushing disease, acromegaly and hyperprolactinemia. As in other forms of secondary osteoporosis, pituitary diseases generally affect bone quality more than bone quantity and fractures may occur even in the presence of nor...
Dear Dr. Civitelli, In discussing such advances, they include spinal morphometry, and specifically refer to and illustrate the Genant semi-quantitative (GSQ) paradigm, although also referring to the algorithm-based qualitative (ABQ) method of vertebral evaluation in the diagnosis of osteoporotic vertebral fractures (OVF). Although in its day the GSQ method was a credible attempt at structured reporting, recent data suggest that GSQ Grade 1 lesions, the most common, relate less well to bone density and fract...
People living with HIV (PLWH) commonly have low bone mineral density (BMD) (low bone mass and osteoporosis) and are at high risk for fractures. Fractures and low BMD are significant causes of morbidity and mortality, increasingly relevant as PLWH age. Alcohol use is common among PLWH and known to affect bone health. The association between alcohol use and changes in BMD among PLWH is not well understood.
We have read with interest the article on vertebral fractures after stopping Denosumab by Cummings SR et al. (1). Denosumab discontinuation is followed by a rebound effect with an increase of CTX above baseline values for two years and a decrease of BMD to baseline value after one year (2). Spontaneous clinical vertebral fractures, most often multiple, occur in the 8 to 16 months (median 11.2 months) following the last Denosumab injection (3). The risk of clinical vertebral fractures in the 12 months follow...
The surgical treatment of acetabular fractures relies on the understanding of fracture architecture and their classification. The Judet and Letournel classification has been the cornerstone in understanding and treating acetabular fractures. Recently, there has been growing evidence of discrepancies and incompleteness in the Judet and Letournel classification, adversely affecting its clinical use. This study describes a novel comprehensive classification system that will direct surgical approach and fixatio...
The purpose of this review is to discuss the recent advances in gene therapy as a treatment for bone regeneration. While most fractures heal spontaneously, patients who present with fracture nonunion suffer from prolonged pain, disability, and often require additional operations to regain musculoskeletal function.
Sustentaculum tali fractures are rare foot fractures accounting for 1% of all calcaneal fractures, which accounts for about 1-2% of all bone fractures. Since the importance of sustentaculum tali in maintaining the medial foot arch, its fractures should be dealt with anatomical fixation to avoid post-traumatic arthrosis.
Hemiarthropalsty (HA) for proximal femur fractures (PFF) has shown good results in the elderly patient population. It has also been used to treat fractures of the proximal femur in patients with metastatic bone disease (MBD). Nonetheless, complications still occur in both patient populations and their effect on 90-day costs can be a great burden to the healthcare system. Thus, the purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the outcomes and costs of HA for PFF in patients with bone metastasis versus t...
Because several studies have implicated serotonin as a regulator of bone mass, we here explore its potential association on fracture risk and falls, as on bone mineral density (BMD) and muscle strength, in humans. Serum levels of serotonin were analyzed in 950 men (aged 69 to 81 years), participating in the Gothenburg part of the population-based study MrOS Sweden. Men taking selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) had a mean value of 31.2 μg/L compared with 159.4 μg/L in those not taking SSRI...
Homocysteine (Hcy) high levels are associated with fractures, bone resorption and an early onset of osteoporosis in elderly persons; a relationship between Hcy and bone formation has also been suggested but is still controversial. Frailty, an independent predictor of fractures and decreased bone mineral density is associated with altered bone metabolism in women. However, no previous works have studied the relationship among frailty, Hcy levels and bone turnover.
Children undergoing lung transplant are at risk for low bone mineral density (BMD) and fractures. The effect of lung transplantation on bone health in pediatric patients is unknown.
Holidays from bisphosphonates (BPs) may help to prevent rare adverse events like atypical femoral fractures, but may be appropriate only if risk of osteoporosis-related fractures does not increase. Our objective was to compare the incidence of osteoporosis-related fractures among women who had a bisphosphonate (BP) holiday to those who continued use BPs. This retrospective cohort study, conducted within 4 Kaiser Permanente integrated health system regions, included 39,502 women aged ≥45 years with ≥3 ye...
We proposed the term "dysmobility syndrome" (DS) to identify individuals with impaired musculoskeletal health, a risk factor for falls and fractures. Whether DS is associated with increased risk of incident fracture is unknown. The "Osteoporotic Fractures in Men" study enrolled 5994 men ages ≥65 years, between March 2000 and April 2002. We used baseline data to determine whether DS increased fracture risk, independent of FRAX. Men met DS criteria at baseline if they had ≥3 of the following: appendicular...
Bone proteomics is an expanding field for understanding protein changes associated with disease as well as characterizing and detecting proteins preserved in fossil bone. Most previous studies have utilized a protocol with demineralization and extraction approach to isolate and characterize proteins from bone. Through near-complete EDTA demineralization, followed by solid digestion of the remaining bone pseudomorph, a total of 92 protein accessions were detected from dog bone. In the EDTA, 14 unique protein...
Hoffa fractures, coronal-plane fractures involving the distal femoral condyles, are unstable, intra-articular fractures. The aim of this study was to define the location and frequency of fracture lines and comminution zones in Hoffa fractures using computed tomography (CT) mapping in both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional contexts.
Hyperkyphosis, an exaggerated anterior curvature of the thoracic spine, is associated with poor physical function, falls, fractures, and earlier mortality. Low bone mineral density, bone loss, and vertebral fractures are strong risk factors for hyperkyphosis. Menopausal hormone therapy (HT) reverses bone loss, prevents vertebral fractures, and, therefore, we hypothesize, may reduce the risk for developing hyperkyphosis.
Hip fractures are associated with significant morbidity and mortality and a major health problem in the United States (). Eighty percent of hip fractures are experienced by 80-year-old women. Plain radiographs usually confirm the diagnosis, but if there is a high level of suspicion of an occult hip fracture, magnetic resonance imaging or bone scan is the next step to confirm the diagnosis. Areas of the hip bone have varied bone strength and blood supply, making the femoral neck one of the most vulnerable ar...
Idiopathic Juvenile Osteoporosis (IJO) refers to significantly lower than expected bone mass manifesting in childhood with no identifiable aetiology. IJO classically presents in early pubertal period with multiple fractures including metaphyseal and vertebral crush fractures, and low bone-mass.
Bone remodeling relies on a delicate balance between formation and resorption of bone tissues, processes in which bone-forming osteoblasts and bone-resorbing osteoclasts play central roles. Recently, we reported that anticoagulant activated protein C (APC) promotes osteoblast proliferation, but the role of the blood coagulation system in bone remodeling remains unclear. In this study, to further elucidate the relationship between bone remodeling and blood coagulation, we investigated the effect of APC on os...
Vertebral fractures are associated with persistent pain, disability and mortality. However, around two thirds of women with vertebral fractures are unaware of them. We aimed to analyze which factors could mostly be associated to the presence of vertebral fractures in post-menopausal women, and evaluate the effectiveness of current screening criteria for the detection of vertebral fractures in an outpatient setting.
To compare trabecular bone scores (TBS) between axial SpA (axSpA) patients with and without vertebral fractures and investigate associations between TBS and vertebral fractures.
Impaired fracture healing is a major clinical problem that can lead to patient disability, prolonged hospitalization, and significant financial burden. Although the majority of fractures heal using standard clinical practices, approximately 10% suffer from delayed unions or non-unions. A wide range of factors contribute to the risk for nonunions including internal factors, such as patient age, gender, and comorbidities, and external factors, such as the location and extent of injury. Current clinical approa...
The number of periprosthetic proximal femoral fractures is expected to increase with the increasing prevalence of hip arthroplasties. While native hip fractures have a well-known association with mortality, there are currently limited data on this outcome among the subset of patients with periprosthetic proximal femoral fractures.
