Impact of a Nutritional Supplement on the Recovery of the Nutritional Status of Patients With Spontaneous Hip Fracture

2019-12-06 00:24:52 | BioPortfolio


Multicenter, prospective, randomized, double-blind, interventional study with a nutritional supplement against placebo in a cohort of patients hospitalized for hip fracture.


Hip fracture is a very prevalent pathology in the elderly population. It is estimated that 35-40% of people over 65 suffer a drop per year, and above 75 years this percentage is even higher, with hip fractures being one of the most serious consequences.With regard to malnutrition, the investigators know that aging carries an increased risk of suffering from decreased appetite and intake and changes in body composition. According to different series, the percentage of malnutrition in patients with hip fracture ranges from 13% to 60%. According to the hospital protocols in Spain in elderly people with spontaneous hip fracture, it is important to perform a nutritional screening during the first 24-48 hours of admission, to evaluate their nutritional status and apply a dietary treatment.

The IRENE study aims to determine whether phase angle and reactance, measured by electrical bioimpedance by vector analysis (BIVA) are related to functional recovery in patients with hip fracture.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.

A TEXTILE fiber obtained from the pappus (outside the SEEDS) of cotton plant (GOSSYPIUM). Inhalation of cotton fiber dust over a prolonged period can result in BYSSINOSIS.

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).

A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)
