This study aims to evaluate the efficacy of the investigators PSU hip protector for prevention of fracture in elderly.The eligible patients include those with previous diagnosed as unilateral hip fracture. They will be randomized into 2 groups;psu hip protector and no protector. The patients will be instructed to wear the protector fulltime.The inceidence of hip fracture will be compared between both group at the end of 1 year.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Prevention

The Laryngeal Mask Airway is a supraglottic airway device that has been used in anesthesia for decades. Now the third generation (LMA Supreme) is commonly used. Recently the LMA Protector ...
Investigators aim to compare two supraglottic airway devices; the i-gel and the newly developed laryngeal mask airway protector in terms of airway sealing effect, the insertion success rat...
The goal of this study is to compare the oropharyngeal leak pressure of the Protector Laryngeal mask with the Supreme laryngeal mask. Other secondary parameters will be studied.
Hip fracture risk varies by geography and by levels of deprivation. We examined the effect of local area-level deprivation on hip fracture incidence across nine regions in England, using 14 years of h...
Traumatic fracture of the thoracolumbar junction (T10-L2) is the most common fracture of the spinal column. Due to the disruption of the entire vertebrae column, the fracture-dislocation of the thorac...
Surgical fracture treatment has undergone an extensive evolution in the past decades. In the early days achieving solid healing in anatomically reduced position was the primary and nearly exclusive go...
The surgical management of distal intra-articular comminuted fracture of the tibia (pilon fracture) is difficult because complications frequently develop. The minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis t...
Immediately following a fracture, a fibrin laden hematoma is formed to prevent bleeding and infection. Subsequently, the organized removal of fibrin, via the protease plasmin, is essential to permit f...
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.
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...
