The purpose is to determine in a case-control study if an association exist between bone marrow adiposity and fragility fractures in post-menopausal women.
A multi-site randomized controlled trial where patients are allocated to operative treatment or conservative treatment of fractures of the neck of the 5th metacarpal bone. The study goal i...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if poor bone quality increases the risk of specific types of treatment complications in patients with distal radius fractures treated with open red...
Fractures of an elbow are common in children. Accurate initial diagnosis is crucial for the management of the fractures of an elbow. In young children the fractures may be suspected clinic...
Case series of tibial plateau fractures using Norian Drillable.
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...
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 metas...
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.
Hyponatremia (HN) can be associated with osteoporosis, falls and bone fractures in the elderly. Recent researches demonstrated different results about the correlation of HN with bone mineral density a...
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 line...
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.
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
