Study Evaluating OsseoSpeed™ Implants in the Upper Jaw in Women With Osteoporosis

The overall objective of the study is to compare treatment with the OsseoSpeed™ implant in the maxilla of postmenopausal women with and without systemic osteoporosis. The hypothesis is t...

MiDeTe - microRNA Levels Under Denosumab and Teriparatide Therapy in Postmenopausal Osteoporosis

The aim of this study is the quantitative determination of bone-specific microRNAs in the serum of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis during antiresorptive or osteoanabolic therapy.

3D Shoulder Kinematics During Throwing-related Movement Patterns Tasks in Upper Extremity Low-to-moderate/Moderate-to-high Loading Conditions

The main purpose of this study is to characterize and compare the 3D shoulder kinematics bilaterally while performing functional movement patterns tests that hypothetically replicate the 5...

Forced Aerobic Exercise for Stroke Rehabilitation

The purpose of the study is to determine if performing different types of aerobic exercise (cycling) before upper extremity exercises will help to improve outcomes after stroke.

The Deferasirox-calcium-vitamin D3 Therapy for Postmenopausal Osteoporosis (PMOP)

In 2006, Weinberg proposed a hypothesis that iron accumulation was a risk factor for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a common complication in various diseases, such as hemochromatosis, Afric...

Long-term denosumab treatment restores cortical bone loss and reduces fracture risk at the forearm and humerus: analyses from the FREEDOM Extension cross-over group.

Upper limb fractures (including wrist, forearm, and humerus) represent a significant burden among postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Up to 7 years of treatment with denosumab resulted in an incr...

Osteoporosis in a murine model of postmenopausal lupus.

Postmenopausal women with systemic lupus erythematosus have an increased risk of osteoporosis and associated fractures. Their increased osteoporosis risk is probably caused by a high level of inflamma...

Predictors affecting anterolateral thigh flap in reconstruction of upper extremity.

Our study is aim to explore predictors for failure of anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap in the reconstruction of upper extremity.We performed a retrospective study for 509 patients who underwent ALT flap...

MiR-320a was highly expressed in postmenopausal osteoporosis and acts as a negative regulator in MC3T3E1 cells by reducing MAP9 and inhibiting PI3K/AKT signaling pathway.

Postmenopausal osteoporosis (PMO), as a frequent disease in postmenopausal women, is mainly caused by the lack of estrogen. MiR-320a has been found to abate osteoblast function and induce oxidative st...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.

A nonhormonal medication for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women. This drug builds healthy bone, restoring some of the bone loss as a result of osteoporosis.

DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS of an upper extremity vein (e.g., AXILLARY VEIN; SUBCLAVIAN VEIN; and JUGULAR VEINS). It is associated with mechanical factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Primary) secondary to other anatomic factors (Upper Extremity Deep Vein Thrombosis, Secondary). Symptoms may include sudden onset of pain, warmth, redness, blueness, and swelling in the arm.

Congenital structural abnormalities of the UPPER EXTREMITY.

The region of the upper limb in animals, extending from the deltoid region to the HAND, and including the ARM; AXILLA; and SHOULDER.
