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.
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...
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 ma...
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 suggest...
High error rates in the prediction of fragility fractures by bone mineral density have motivated searches for better clinical indicators of bone strength, and the high incidence of non-hip, non-spine ...
Although volar locking plates (VLPs) have been exclusively used for unstable distal radius fractures (DRFs), the optimal management of distal ulna fractures (DUFs) remains controversial. Internal fixa...
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).
