40 postmenopausal women, with a non-operated proximal humeral fracture, will be randomized to standard treatment (physiotherapy) or standard treatment + Forsteo (rhPTH 1-34) during 4 weeks. Follow-up will be at 7 weeks and 3 months including x-ray and DASH score (The Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand) measuring physical function, and pain on a visual analoge scale (VAS).
Two doctors, blinded to the treatment, will judge the callus formation and healing on the x-rays and guess the treatment. The DASH score and the pain score will be compared between the treatment groups.
The investigators hypotheses are that callus formation and healing will be more pronounced and that patients have less pain and better function in the rhPTH 1-34 group.

The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of the drug teriparatide to the effect of placebo on pelvic fracture healing.
Osteoporosis is a disease that affects millions of individuals in the United States and abroad. It leads to decreased bone mass and causes an increased risk of fracture. This study will co...
Effects of Teriparatide on Distal Radius Fracture Healing
We describe 2 patients who sustained a periprosthetic humeral fracture with a loosened long-stemmed Coonrad-Morrey total elbow prosthesis. As noted in the literature, the success rate for a major revi...
Skeletal response to treatment with teriparatide (TPD) after bisphosphonate in post-menopausal women with osteoporosis and a high prevalence of secondary risk factors in real-life setting of a metabolic bone clinic; effect of age and vitamin D status.
Teriparatide (TPD) is a skeletal anabolic agent used in patients with severe post-menopausal osteoporosis (PMO) and steroid-induced osteoporosis who are at hish risk of fracture. Predictors of therape...
Total elbow arthroplasty is commonly considered for elderly patients with comminuted distal humeral fractures. Satisfactory short-term outcomes have been reported, but long-term outcomes are unknown. ...
Humeral shaft fractures can be managed conservatively or operatively. Fracture characteristics were analyzed to identify patients who would benefit from early operative fixation.
Supracondylar humeral fractures are the most common type of pediatric elbow fracture. With proper treatment, these injuries usually heal well and the patients return to full function. However, a small...
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
