This is a randomized controlled, observer blinded trial to study the beneficial effect of nutritional supplementation in elderly Hong Kong patients after hip fracture surgery during rehabilitation and at 4 weeks follow up. The control group will receive Calcium and Vitamin D supplementation whereas the intervention group will receive a moderately high dose protein nutritional supplementation in addition to Vitamin D and Calcium. Both groups undergo the same rehabilitation program and dietary counseling before discharge. They are followed up 4 weeks after discharge or completion of supplementation. The outcome parameters are nutritional parameters and rehabilitation outcomes.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Protein supplementation may promote increases in strength and hypertrophy in the context of resistance training (RT) and reduce markers of inflammation, while sufficient levels of protein ...
The aim of the study is to determine the effect of 16 weeks of Whole Body-Electromyostimulation (WB-EMS) and/or protein supplementation on Sarcopenic Obesity (SO) in community dwelling mal...
Investigators examined the associations between whey protein supplementation before meals with energy balance and body composition.
The study hypothesis is that, in human milk-fed extremely preterm infants, higher protein intake compared to usual protein intake reduces percent body fat (%BF) at 3 months of age.
This study evaluates the effect of Vitamin D3 supplementation in healing rate of tibia fractures in adult patients with low vitamin D. Half of participants will receive Vitamin D3 suppleme...
Fractures of the lateral third of the clavicle represent 18% of all clavicle fractures. Even though non-displaced fractures can be managed conservatively, displaced fractures have a non-union percenta...
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...
In older persons, muscle loss is accelerated during physical inactivity and hypoenergetic states, both of which are features of hospitalization. Protein supplementation may represent a strategy to off...
The proposed benefits of protein supplementation on the skeletal muscle adaptive response to resistance exercise training in older adults remain unclear.
Phalangeal fractures are common in all ages. Stable, extra-articular fractures can be treated non-operatively by closed reduction and buddy taping, while surgical fixation should be considered for uns...
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.
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).
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).
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.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
