Reproductive factors and fatal hip fractures. A Norwegian prospective study of 63,000 women. (1/1367)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of reproductive variables (age at menarche, menopause, first and last birth as well as parity, lactation, and abortions) on hip fracture mortality. DESIGN AND SETTING: A prospective study in Norway with more than 60,000 women followed up for 29 years. A total of 465 deaths as a result of hip fracture were recorded. MAIN RESULTS: Statistically significant linear relations (p < or = 0.02) were found between both age at menarche and length of reproductive period (defined as age at menopause to age at menarche) and the mortality of hip fractures in women aged less than 80. The death rate for women with a late menarche (> or = 17 years) was twice that of the women with relatively early menarche (< or = 13 years). Compared with women with less than 30 years between menopause and menarche, the mortality rate ratio in women with more than 38 reproductive years was 0.5. We also found an inverse relation with age at first birth. CONCLUSIONS: This study supports by hypothesis that an early menarche and a long reproductive period protect against hip fracture mortality. High age at first birth may also be protective.  (+info)

Mortality league tables: do they inform or mislead? (2/1367)

OBJECTIVE: To examine certain methodological issues related to the publication of mortality league tables, with particular reference to severity adjustment and sample size. DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of inpatient hospital records. SETTING: 22 hospitals in North West Thames health region for the fiscal year 1992-3. SUBJECTS: All admissions with a principal diagnosis of aortic aneurysm, carcinoma of the colon, cervical cancer, cholecystectomy, fractured neck of femur, head injury, ischaemic heart disease, and peptic ulcer. MAIN MEASURES: In hospital mortality rates adjusted by disease severity and calculated on the basis of both admissions and episodes. RESULTS: The numbers of deaths from specific conditions were often small and the corresponding confidence intervals wide. Rankings of hospitals by death rate are sensitive to adjustment for severity of disease. There are some differences that cannot be explained using routine data. CONCLUSIONS: Comparison of crude death rates may be misleading. Some adjustment for differences in severity is possible, but current systems are unsatisfactory. Differences in death rates should be studied, but because of the scope for manipulating data, this should be undertaken in a collaborative rather than a confrontational way. Any decision to publish league tables of death rates will be on political rather than scientific grounds.  (+info)

Hip fractures among infertile women. (3/1367)

A retrospective cohort study was conducted in a population-based inception cohort of 1,157 Olmsted County, Minnesota, women with infertility (failure to conceive after 1 year despite intercourse without contraception) that was first diagnosed at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minnesota) between 1935 and 1964. In this relatively young cohort, 31 hip fractures were observed during 35,849 person-years of follow-up; 36.5 had been expected (standardized incidence ratio = 0.85, 95% confidence interval 0.58-1.20). Standardized incidence ratios did not differ by type or cause of infertility. The data suggested that women with consistently irregular menses may have a greater risk of hip fracture. This finding should be confirmed by additional studies with longer follow-up periods and with assessment of other fracture outcomes.  (+info)

Residential status and risk of hip fracture. (4/1367)

OBJECTIVE: to examine the association between residential status and risk of hip fracture in older people. DESIGN: population-based case-control study. SETTING: Auckland, New Zealand. SUBJECTS: a random sample of all individuals > or = 60 years, hospitalized with a fracture of the proximal femur between July 1991 and February 1994. Controls were age and gender frequency-matched to the cases, randomly selected from a random sample of general practitioners. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: radiographically-confirmed fracture of the proximal femur. Fractures sustained as a result of major trauma, such as in a motor vehicle crash, and those associated with pre-existing pathological conditions were excluded. RESULTS: individuals living in institutions were almost four times more likely to sustain a hip fracture [age- and gender-adjusted odds ratio (OR)=3.8; 95% confidence interval (CI): 3.0-4.8] than those living in private homes. After adjustment for potential confounding factors, the risk of hip fracture associated with living in an institution remained significantly increased (P< 0.0001), although the magnitude of the risk was somewhat diminished (OR=2.2; 95% (CI: 1.5-3.5). CONCLUSIONS: living in an institution is associated with an increased risk of hip fracture in older people. Specific factors that place these individuals at increased risk need to be identified, in order to develop intervention strategies.  (+info)

Alcohol intake, beverage preference, and risk of hip fracture in men and women. Copenhagen Centre for Prospective Population Studies. (5/1367)

The authors prospectively studied the association between quantity and type of alcohol intake and risk of hip fracture among 17,868 men and 13,917 women. Analyses were based on pooled data from three population studies conducted in 1964-1992 in Copenhagen, Denmark. During follow-up, 500 first hip fractures were identified in women and 307 in men. A low to moderate weekly alcohol intake (1-27 drinks for men and 1-13 drinks for women) was not associated with hip fracture. Among men, the relative risk of hip fracture gradually increased for those who drank 28 drinks or more per week (relative risk (RR) = 1.75, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.06-2.89 for 28-41 drinks; RR = 5.28, 95% CI 2.60-10.70 for 70 or more drinks) as compared with abstainers. Women who drank 14-27 drinks per week had an age-adjusted relative risk of hip fracture of 1.44 (95% CI 1.03-2.03), but the association weakened after adjustment for confounders (RR = 1.32, 95% CI 0.92-1.87). The risk of hip fracture differed according to the type of alcohol preferred: preferrers of beer had a higher risk of hip fracture (RR = 1.46, 95% CI 1.11-1.91) than preferrers of other types of alcoholic beverages. The corresponding relative risks for preferrers of wine and spirits were 0.77 (95% CI 0.58-1.03) and 0.82 (95% CI 0.58-1.14), respectively. In conclusion, an alcohol intake within the current European drinking limits does not influence the risk of hip fracture, whereas an alcohol intake of more than 27 drinks per week is a major risk factor for men.  (+info)

Costs and outcomes of hip fracture and stroke, 1984 to 1994. (6/1367)

OBJECTIVES: This study quantified changes in Medicare payments and outcomes for hip fracture and stroke from 1984 to 1994. METHODS: We studied National Long Term Care Survey respondents who were hospitalized for hip fracture (n = 887) or stroke (n = 878) occurring between 1984 and 1994. Changes in Medicare payment and survival were primary outcomes. We also assessed changes in functional and cognitive status. RESULTS: Medicare payments within 6 months increased following hip fracture (103%) or stroke (51%). Survival improved for stroke (P < .001) and to a lesser extent for hip fracture (P = .16). Condition-specific improvements were found in functional and cognitive status. CONCLUSIONS: During the period 1984 to 1994, Medicare payments for hip fracture and stroke rose and there were some improvements in survival and other outcomes.  (+info)

Mental distress and risk of hip fracture. Do broken hearts lead to broken bones? (7/1367)

OBJECTIVE: Mental distress may entail increased risk of hip fracture, but it is uncertain whether the effect consists solely of an indirect effect through use of medication, or whether it is also mediated through other mechanism. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between mental distress and risk of hip fracture in women, adjusted for medication (that is, use of tranquillisers/sedatives or hypnotics). DESIGN: A three year follow up of hip fracture was conducted on 18,612 women, consisting of 92.5% of all women aged 50 years or older in a Norwegian county. Three hundred and twenty nine suffered a hip fracture. A mental distress index was based on questions about life dissatisfaction, nervousness, loneliness, sleep disorders, troubled and uneasy feelings, depression and impairment attributable to psychological complaints. Relative risk with 95% confidence intervals (CI) of hip fracture with respect to mental distress were controlled for medication, age, body mass index (BMI), smoking, physical inactivity, and physical illness by means of Cox regression. RESULTS: The 10% of women with the highest mental distress had more than twofold increased risk of hip fracture compared with the 10% of women with the lowest mental distress, after adjustment for age and medication. The relative risk was 1.95 (95% CI 1.2, 3.3) after additional control for BMI, smoking, physical inactivity, and physical illness. The relative risk of hip fracture for daily users of medication compared with never users was 2.1 (95% CI 1.6, 2.9). After adjusting for mental distress it was 1.5 (95% CI 1.0, 2.2). CONCLUSIONS: Risk of hip fracture was positively related to mental distress, also after adjustment for medication use. The effect of tranquillisers/sedatives or hypnotics on hip fracture risk may be overestimated in studies with no adjustments for mental distress.  (+info)

Y1 - 1998/1. N2 - Regaining independence in the performance of activities of daily living (ADL) is a nursing priority in the postoperative care of hip fracture patients, though often impeded by a temporary yet reversible decrease in cognitive status postoperatively. This study investigated the incidence and evolution of decreased cognitive status in geriatric hip fracture patients from admission through to the fifth postoperative day, and the relationship between cognitive abilities and functional (ADL) status. Twenty-six elderly hip fracture patients (f: 21, m: 5) with a mean age of 79·5 years (SD = 8·2) admitted to the emergency room of an academic medical centre were monitored longitudinally from admission until the fifth postoperative day regarding neurocognitive status and ADL status, as measured by ...

AU - Merriwether, Ericka. AU - Williams, Rachel T.. AU - Nordrum, Jon T.. PY - 2008. Y1 - 2008. N2 - Purpose: Early ambulation and rehabilitation are recommended for patients undergoing surgical fixation of hip fracture. Gait velocity may be used as an outcome measure for these patients during acute rehabilitation. As an outcome measure, an estimate of meaningful change (responsiveness) in gait velocity for these patients, however, has not been described. The minimum detectable change (MDC) is a value that represents true change in a measure beyond that accounted for by measurement error. The purpose of this study was to quantify MDC in gait velocity as an index of responsiveness for persons in the acute stage of rehabilitation following hip fracture. Methods: The study design was a descriptive cohort study with one ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - CT-measurement predicts shortening of stable intertrochanteric hip fractures. AU - Hecht, Garin. AU - Shelton, Trevor J.. AU - Saiz, Augustine M.. AU - Goodell, Parker B.. AU - Wolinsky, Philip R. PY - 2018/12/1. Y1 - 2018/12/1. N2 - Purpose: Intertrochanteric (IT) hip fractures can be treated with sliding hip screws (SHS) or cephalomedullary nails (CMN) based on the stability of the fracture. This stability is affected by the initial impaction of the fracture which can be difficult to assess. The aim of this paper is to develop specific pre-operative computed tomography (CT) measurements of IT fractures which are predictive of post-operative shortening. Methods: A retrospective review was performed of 141 patients with AO/OTA 31A1 or 31A2 fracture patterns, who had pre-operative radiographs and CT scans, and who were treated with a SHS or a CMN. Pre-operative and post-operative imaging of IT fractures were analyzed for those fractures that shortened ≥15 mm post-fixation. ...
BACKGROUND: A neuroinflammatory response is suggested to play an important role in delirium, a common complication in older hospitalized patients. We examined whether hip fracture patients who develop postoperative delirium have a different proteome in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) prior to surgery. METHODS: Patients (≥ 75 years) were admitted for hip ... read more fracture surgery. CSF was collected during spinal anaesthesia; proteins were separated using gel electrophoresis and identified with mass spectrometry. We compared the proteome of patients with and without postoperative delirium. Findings were validated in an independent, comparable cohort using immuno-assays. RESULTS: In the derivation cohort 53 patients were included, 35.8% developed postoperative delirium. We identified differences in levels of eight CSF proteins between patients with and without subsequent delirium: complement factor C3, contactin-1, fibulin-1 and I-beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase were significantly lower ...

The demographics were comparable to previous studies in HK. The mean age of patients with fragility hip fracture in our 2012 data was 82.1 years, unchanged compared with local data from 2000 to 2011.1 The female-to-male ratio was around 2:1 indicating an increase in male fragility hip fractures compared with 2.5:1 from 2001 to 2010.4 8 This may be due to increasing life expectancy of the HK male population9 and bone mineral density (BMD) at the hip in men that decreases with age.10 There were 1257 (46.6%) femoral neck fractures, 1445 (49.6%) intertrochanteric fractures, and 110 (3.8%) subtrochanteric fractures, comparable with a previous local study of 1342 hip fracture patients from 2007 to 2010.8 The majority of patients had an ASA score of 2 and 3, comprising 40.9% and 56.3%, respectively and in line with Lau et als study.8 There was a marked increase in hemiarthroplasties and intramedullary fixations with 977 (33.5%) and 983 (3.7%) cases respectively in our study, compared with Lau et als ...

Hip fracture patients in the aging population frequently present with various comorbidities, whilst preservation of independency and activities of daily living can be challenging. Thus, an interdisciplinary orthogeriatric treatment of these patients has recognized a growing acceptance in the last years. As there is still limited data on the impact of this approach, the present study aimed to evaluate the long-term outcome in elderly hip fracture patients, by comparing the treatment of a hospital with integrated orthogeriatric care (OGC) with a conventional trauma care (CTC). We conducted a retrospective, two-center, cohort study. In two maximum care hospitals all patients presenting with a hip fracture at the age of ≥ 70 years were consecutively assigned within a 1 year period and underwent follow-up examination 12 months after surgery. Patients treated in hospital site A were treated with an interdisciplinary orthogeriatric approach (co-managed care), patients treated in hospital B underwent

Studies comparing internally linked (person-identifying) and unlinked (episodes of care) hospital discharge data (HDD) on hip fractures have mainly focused on incidence overestimation by unlinked HDD, but little is known about the impact of overestimation on patient profiles such as comorbidity estimates. In view of the continuing use of unlinked HDD in hip fracture research and the desire to apply research results to hip fracture prevention, we concurrently assessed the accuracy of both incidence and comorbidity estimates derived from unlinked HDD compared to those estimated from internally linked HDD. We analysed unlinked and internally linked HDD between 01 July 2005 and 30 June 2008, inclusive, from Victoria, Australia to estimate the incidence of hospital admission for fall-related hip fracture in community-dwelling older people aged 65+ years and determine the prevalence of comorbidity in patients. Community-dwelling status was defined as living in private residence, supported residential
In a population-based retrospective cohort study, Rochester women aged 35-69 years who were first diagnosed with one or more vertebral fractures in 1950-1979 were followed for the development of a subsequent hip fracture. The 336 women with no history of hip fracture at the time of their vertebral fracture experienced 52 proximal femur fractures in 4788 person-years of follow-up. The standardized morbidity ratio (SMR) of observed to expected hip fractures was 1.8 (95% CI, 1.3-2.4) and was higher for intertrochanteric than cervical femoral fractures (SMR, 2.3 versus 1.3; P = 0.07). Hip fracture risk among women with symptomatic vertebral fractures was slightly less than in those with asymptomatic vertebral fractures (SMR, 1.8 versus 2.3; not significant), and younger women had no higher risk of a subsequent hip fracture than women who were | or = 60 years of age at the time of their vertebral fracture (SMR, 1.4 versus 1.8; not significant). Alternative explanations are possible, but these data are

Comparison of activities of daily living after osteoporotic hip fracture surgery in patients admitted from home and from geriatric health service facilities Akira Horikawa,1 Naohisa Miyakoshi,2 Yoichi Shimada,2 Hiroyuki Kodama1 1South Akita Orthopedic Clinic, Katagami, 2Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Akita University Graduate School of Medicine, Akita, Japan Abstract: With the population and proportion of the elderly increasing each year, ­difficulties with postoperative treatment outcomes after osteoporotic hip fracture are increasing. This study focused on activities of daily living (ADL) in patients who underwent surgery for hip fracture through an investigation of living arrangements, the presence of dementia, and other complications of aging. Information from 99 patients who lived either at home or in geriatric health service facilities was collected for this trial. Most patients were over 65 years of age and female, and about half of them had dementia. The postoperative ADL score
With an increase in life expectancy, the health care authority is likely to encounter more elderly patients with hip fracture. The cost of providing clinical care for centenarians imposes a substantial financial burden on our health care system. There are only a few publications that specifically examine the surgical outcome of centenarians following hip fracture surgery. Due to their limited sample size, these studies have failed to justify the need to operate on centenarians with hip fracture. A previous report by Tarity et al10 on 23 centenarians reported a 1-year mortality of 60% and concluded that operating on patients ,100 years carried an acceptable mortality rate. Patil et al11 reported a high mobility rate of 77% and a low mortality rate of 8.3% in 13 centenarians, and concluded that hip fracture surgery yielded a good return on money spent and quality of life. Shabat et al12 reported a mortality rate of 48% in 23 centenarians and concluded that operated cases had shorter ...

In January 2005, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in England and Wales provided new guidance on the use of antiosteoporosis therapies for the secondary prevention of osteoporotic fractures. This was shortly followed in the same year by market authorization of a generic form of alendronic acid within the UK. We here set out to estimate the actual practice impact of these events among hip fracture patients in terms of antiosteoporosis medication prescribing and subsequent fracture incidence using primary care data (Clinical Practice Research Datalink) from 1999 to 2013. Changes in level and trend of prescribing and subsequent fracture following publication of NICE guidance and availability of generic alendronic acid were estimated using an interrupted time series analysis. Both events were considered in combination within a 1-year intervention period. We identified 10,873 primary hip fracture patients between April 1999 and Sept 2012. Taking into account prior trend, the
Ibutamoren, more commonly known as MK-677, is the most powerful and potent orally administered growth hormone secretagogue, when it comes to selective androgen receptor modulators, also known as SARMs. Simply put, a secretagogue is a substance that chemically signals the pituitary gland to increase secretion of growth hormone MK-677 could be compared to peptides like GHRP-6 or Ipamorelin, only it doesnt require any injections, nor does it have similar side effects. Originally developed by Reverse Pharmacology, MK-677 aimed to combat conditions like muscle wasting, obesity, osteoporosis, and, oddly enough, the treatment of elderly hip fracture patients.. ...
Background Posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) is a fusion technique with reliable and rapid fusion results. The traditional technique describes the use of two cages filled with bone graft and inserted in a straight-ahead direction within the prepared disc space. Bone graft used is usually harvested from the posterior iliac crest. This study evaluates the use of a single cage inserted diagonally through unilateral discectomy and filled with bone fragments obtained from the local decompression procedure. Patients and methods Fourteen patients underwent pedicle screw-rod supplemented PLIF and spinal canal decompression for symptomatic spinal canal stenosis, instability, or spondylolisthesis refractive to conservative treatment. PLIF was performed using a single PEEK cage filled with impacted graft from the locally excised bone. The PEEK cage was inserted into the prepared intervertebral disc space in an oblique (diagonal) manner to obtain near-symmetrical end-plate loading across the midline. ...
Speaking at the European Symposium on Calcified Tissue in Vienna today (27 May), Professor Bo Abrahamsen from the Copenhagen University Hospital Gentofte in Denmark, described the results from a major study analyzing seven trials examining the effects of low doses of vitamin D with calcium in 68,500 patients. Participants in the study were aged 47…
Supporting: 2, Mentioning: 165 - Hip fractures lead to excess deaths and substantial disability. Most are related both to falls and to osteoporosis, which affects one in four post-menopausal white women, but a lesser number of men or women of other races. Consequently, about half of the 1.66 million hip fractures worldwide in 1990 occurred in Europe and North America. Even within these regions, however, there is substantial variation in hip fracture incidence rates, which suggests the existence of important environmental factors that could be manipulated to reduce hip fracture occurrence. This is important because in the United States alone, a quarter of a million hip fractures annually cost over $8 billion, mostly for acute medical care and nursing home services. Future costs will be even greater because populations are ageing rapidly around the world and because hip fracture incidence rates are rising in some regions. The number of elderly is increasing most rapidly in Asia, Latin America, the Middle
Osteoporotic hip fracture is the most severe kind of fracture with high morbidity and mortality. Patients ambulation and quality of life are significantly affected by the fracture because only 50% regain their prefracture functional status, even if they undergo surgeries. There are many issues associated with the current preventive methods e.g., cost, side effects, patient compliance, and time for onset of action. Femoroplasty, the injection of bone cement into the proximal femur to augment femoral strength and to prevent fracture, has been an option with great potential. However, until now femoroplasty has remained at the stage of biomechanical testing. No in vivo study has evaluated its safety and effectiveness; there is not even an animal model for such investigations. The objective of this study was to develop a proximal femur fracture goat model that consistently fractures at the proximal femur when subject to vertical load, simulating osteoporotic hip fractures in human. Six pairs of ...
Activity and exercise are believed to be of benefit for reducing disability in older adults, yet the majority of older adults do not participate in regular exercise and is not active. This is especially true for older adults following hip fracture after they complete the usual rehabilitation program.. This study is being done to compare two 16-week supervised multi-part physical therapy programs (interventions) initiated up to 26 weeks after hip fracture. The investigators want to test whether the interventions lead to improvements in a persons ability to walk on their own in the home and in the local community. With this knowledge the investigators hope to help a greater number of hip fracture patients enjoy a more complete recovery and improved overall health.. ANCILLARY STUDY #1 - MECHANISTIC PATHWAYS TO COMMUNITY AMBULATION (CAP-MP) The goal of this ancillary study is to investigate several mechanisms thought to be related to recovery in ambulatory ability after hip fracture. Selected ...
To assess the relationships between reproductive factors and the risk of hip fractures in postmenopausal Chinese women, the authors analyzed data from a matched case-control study conducted in the Bei
Background Osteoporosis is a multifactorial systemic skeletal disease, characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural modifications of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in fragility fractures [1]. Vertebral fractures are the most prevalent osteoporotic fractures and osteoporotic hip fractures are the most serious complication of osteoporosis resulting in increased mortality and high socio-economic cost [2,3]. The coexistence of these two pathological conditions in elderly patients has been previously described, leading to even worse functional outcomes than each one alone [4]. ...
The National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database was utilised to identify hip fracture patients who underwent THA from 2008 to 2015. Propensity scores were calculated for the likelihood of having a preoperative albumin measurement. Hip fracture patients who underwent THA and had preoperative hypoalbuminemia (,3.5 g/dL) (n = 569) were compared to those who had normal albumin levels (⩾3.5 g/dL) (n = 1098) in terms of demographics and perioperative data. Regression models were adjusted for age, sex, modified Charlson/Deyo scores, and propensity scores to evaluate complication and re-operation rates.. READ MORE ...
Objective: To compare antirotator proximal femoral nail (A-PFN) with antirotator dynamic hip screw (A-DHS). Methods: Fourteen proximal femur models with type 31/A2 fracture, according to the AO Foundation/Orthopaedic Trauma Association (AO/OTA) classification, were separated into two groups. Group 1 bones (n = 7) were fixed with A-PFN and Group 2 (n = 7) with A-DHS. A 5 mm/min axial load was applied to femur heads using a testing device. Results: Two of the seven models in the A-PFN group fractured at the proximal, and the other five at distal locking screw level. All models in the A-DHS group fractured at the tightened distal screw region. The median fracture load for the A-PFN group was 132.1 N (97.1-173.69 N range), and for the A-DHS group it was 81.7 N (75.15-89.12 N range). Conclusion: A-PFN-treated unstable intertrochanteric fractured models resisted to higher levels of axial load than the A-DHS-treated group, with statistically significant difference. However, clinical studies are ...
Background: Hip fractures affect 1.6 million patients yearly worldwide, often elderly with complex comorbidity. Mortality following surgery for acute hip fracture is high and multifactorial; high age, comorbidities and complication/deterioration in health following surgery. Whether the anaesthesia technique affects the 30-day mortality rate has been studied widely without reaching a consensus. The primary aim of this study was to determine anaesthetic techniques used in Sweden and their impact on the 30-day mortality rate in elderly undergoing acute hip fracture surgery. Other aims were to study the impact of age, gender, ASA class, fracture type and delay in surgery on the 30-day mortality rate. Methods: Data from 13,649 patients =50 years old who had undergone acute hip fracture surgery and been reported to Swedish perioperative register (SPOR) between 2016 and 2017 were analysed. Results: The most commonly used anaesthetic technique was neuraxial anaesthesia (NA; 11,257, 82%), followed by ...
Background: It is not known whether the recently described break in the trend in hip fracture incidence in many settings applies in both women and men, depends on changes in bone mineral density (BMD) or changes in other risk factors, or whether it is apparent in both urban and rural settings. Methods: We evaluated changes in annual hip fracture incidence from 1987 to 2002 in Swedish men aged ≥60 years in one urban (n=25,491) and one rural population (n=16,432) and also secular differences in BMD, measured by single-photon absorptiometry at the distal radius and multiple other risk factors for hip fracture in a population-based sub-sample of the urban and the rural men aged 60-80 years in 1988/89 (n=202 vs. 121) and in 1998/99 (n=79 vs. 69). Results: No statistically significant changes in the annual age-adjusted hip fracture incidence per 10,000 were apparent from 1987 to 2002 in urban (0.38 per year, 95% CI-0.12 to 0.88) or rural men (-0.05 per year, 95% CI -0.63 to 0.53). BMD was similar in ...
UNLABELLED: Using a large cohort of hip fracture patients, we estimated hospital costs to be £14,163 and £2139 in the first and second year following fracture, respectively. Second hip and non-hip fractures were major cost drivers. There is a strong economic incentive to identify cost-effective approaches for hip fracture prevention. INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to estimate hospital costs of hip fracture up to 2 years post-fracture and compare costs before and after the index fracture. METHODS: A cohort of patients aged over 60 years admitted with a hip fracture in a UK region between 2003 and 2013 were identified from hospital records and followed until death or administrative censoring. All hospital records were valued using 2012/2013 unit costs, and non-parametric censoring methods were used to adjust for censoring when estimating average annual costs. A generalised linear model examined the main predictors of hospital costs. RESULTS: A cohort of 33,152 patients with a hip fracture

Introduction: The main objectives in the treatment of an intertrochanteric fracture in elderly population are to prevent medical complications, maintain mobility, independence, and relieve pain. When this fracture occurs in an arthrodesed hip, there is a significant lack of scientific evidence of optimal treatment and clinical results since only few case reports have been published so far. Case Report: A Caucasian 83-year-old woman slipped and fell, complaining of the left hip pain. After radiographic evaluation, she was diagnosed with an intertrochanteric fracture that occurred in a long-term arthrodesed hip. We treated this rare presentation by open reduction and internal fixation with a proximal locking femoral plate and a pelvic reconstruction plate. No immobilization was needed in the post-operative care. Fracture healing occurred after 3months. Conclusion: Without motion on the hip, the lower extremity forms one long lever arm, creating an unusual instability at the fracture site. The authors
OrthoBuzz occasionally receives posts from guest bloggers. This guest post comes from Matthew Herring, MD, in response to a recent study in the Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma. Among the elderly, low-energy hip fractures are common injuries that almost all orthopaedic surgeons encounter. While operative management is typically the standard of care, there are some patients for whom nonoperative…
Background A hip fracture is a dramatic event with serious consequences. Many patients do not survive the first year after the fracture, and those who survive will often experience loss of function and increased need of assistance. Patients suffering a hip fracture are often elderly and frail, and many suffer from several medical conditions in addition to the fracture. The patients often use several medications, have malnutrition and poor social support. Dementia is very common. All these conditions are often seen among patients treated by geriatricians, and it has therefore been argued that a hip fracture is a geriatric, rather than an orthopedic disease. In many countries geriatricians have been involved in the care of such patients. A structured collaboration between orthopedic surgeons and geriatricians is labeled an orthogeriatric service. There exists a wide range of models of orthogeriatric care, and despite a lot of research, it is still not concluded which orthogeriatric model is most ...
This case series serves to illustrate several points: hip fractures in breast cancer survivors present at an earlier age than in postmenopausal osteoporosis, result in clinically important functional decline, and occur at higher BMD than in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis.. First hip fractures in breast cancer survivors may present at an earlier age than in postmenopausal osteoporosis where hip fractures occur in the 8-decade of life (mean age 74 years). Notably, breast cancer survivors can present with hip fractures as early as the sixth decade of life.. Second, hip fractures are associated with functional decline among middle-aged breast cancer patients. Greater awareness of the functional and quality of life impact of CTIBL fracture complications in cancer survivors is necessary. Hip fractures in older women account for considerable functional impairment, morbidity, hospitalizations, and increased mortality (7-10). Osteoporotic fractures such as wrist, vertebral and hip fractures are ...
Hip fracture is a clinical condition that involves a break in the femur (hip bone) near where it attaches to the pelvis. Hip fractures occur more than 300,000 times each year in the US and over 1.6 million times each year worldwide.. Over 90% of hip fractures occur in individuals aged 50 or older, most commonly resulting from low-energy traumatic injuries, such as falls from standing in the context of established osteoporosis, chronic illness, or disability. Surgical treatment, via fixation of the fractured bone or partial or total replacement of the hip joint, is indicated for all types of hip fractures and approximately 95% of hip fracture patients undergo surgery.. No evidence-based interventions now exist to improve functional outcomes after hip fracture surgery beyond the immediate postoperative period. Nearly all hip fracture patients require orthopedic surgery and anesthesia,making the anesthetic care episode a major opportunity to impact outcomes.. Spinal and general anesthesia represent ...
The relationship between milk intake and risk of osteoporotic fractures is uncertain. Associations between milk intake and milk avoidance in relation to osteoporotic hip fracture were examined in the Utah Study of Nutrition and Bone Health (USNBH), a statewide case-control study. Cases were ascertained at Utah hospitals treating 98 percent of hip fractures during 1997-2001 and included 1188 men and women aged 50-89 years. Age- and gender-matched controls were randomly selected from Utah drivers license and Medicare databases (N= 1324). In-person interviews were conducted and participants reported frequency of milk intake per week at age 18 and during pregnancy among women who reported being pregnant. Milk avoidance for a period of more than one year and duration of milk avoidance were also reported. Diet and supplement intake in the one-year period before fracture (cases) or the interview (controls) was assessed using a picture-sort food frequency questionnaire. Milk consumption frequency was
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of Chinese herbal medicines on the risk of overall mortality, readmission, and reoperation in hip fracture patients. AU - Cheng, Chi Fung. AU - Lin, Ying Ju. AU - Tsai, Fuu Jen. AU - Li, Te Mao. AU - Lin, Ting Hsu. AU - Liao, Chiu Chu. AU - Huang, Shao Mei. AU - Liu, Xiang. AU - Li, Ming Ju. AU - Ban, Bo. AU - Liang, Wen Miin. AU - Lin, Jeff Chien Fu. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Hip fracture is a major public health concern, with high incidence rates in the elderly worldwide. Hip fractures are associated with increased medical costs, patient dependency on families, and higher rates of morbidity and mortality. Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) is typically characterized as cost-effective and suitable for long-term use with few side effects. To better understand the effects of CHM on hip fracture patients, we utilized a population-based database to investigate the demographic characteristics, cumulative incidence of overall mortality, readmission, reoperation, and ...
Singapore - A study in New Delhi India has revealed high rates of vitamin D deficiency among hip fracture patients, confirming the conclusions of similar international studies which point to vitamin D deficiency as a risk factor for hip fracture. A group of 90 hip fracture patients was compared to a matched control group of similar age, sex and co-morbidity. Of the patients who had suffered hip fractures, 76.7% were shown to be vitamin D deficient as measured by serum 25(OH)D levels of less than 20 ng/ml. In addition, 68.9% had elevated PTH levels. In comparison, only 32.3% of the controls had vitamin D deficiency and 42.2% had elevated PTH levels (secondary hyperparathyroidism).. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to the pathogenesis of osteoporosis and is increasingly thought to play a role in muscle strength, certain cancers, multiple sclerosis and diabetes. Vitamin D levels are very low in the Indian population in all age groups, and could be explained by skin pigmentation, traditional ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Subcapital vs intertrochanteric fracture of the neck of the femur. T2 - are there two distinct subpopulations?. AU - Dias, J. J.. AU - Robbins, John A. AU - Steingold, R. F.. AU - Donaldson, L. J.. PY - 1987. Y1 - 1987. N2 - 216 consecutive patients with femoral neck fractures were evaluated to determine whether different subpopulations fracture their hips in different anatomical locations. Elderly patients were shown to have more distal fractures. Patients with subcapital fractures had higher concentrations of albumin and haemoglobin at the time of hopitalisation, but comparable serum creatinines. Mental scores and index of activities of daily living are comparable. Prior fractures, morbidity, medication use, and serious medical illnesses were similar, as were length of stay and outcome at the time of discharge. There do not appear to be major differences in the populations of patients with subcapital or intertrochanteric fractures.. AB - 216 consecutive patients with femoral ...
Background: There is consistent and significant variation in neuraxial anesthesia use for hip fracture surgery across jurisdictions. We measured the association of hospital-level utilization of neuraxial anesthesia, independent of patient-level use, with 30-day survival (primary outcome) and length of stay and costs (secondary outcomes). Methods: We conducted a population-based cohort study using linked administrative data in Ontario, Canada. We identified all hip fracture patients more than 65 yr of age from 2002 to 2014. For each patient, we measured the proportion of hip fracture patients at their hospital who received neuraxial anesthesia in the year before their surgery. Multilevel, multivariable regression was used to measure the association of log-transformed hospital-level neuraxial anesthetic-use proportion with outcomes, controlling for patient-level anesthesia type and confounders. Results: Of 107,317 patients, 57,080 (53.2%) had a neuraxial anesthetic; utilization varied from 0 to ...
Osteoporosis is a common condition that results from loss of bone mass, measured as bone density. People over 50 are at the greatest risk for developing osteoporosis and having bone fractures. Osteoporosis is most common among older women, especially non-Hispanic white and Asian women. Treatment with bisphosphonates, a class of anti-resorptive drugs, may slow bone loss and decrease fracture risk in osteoporosis patients.. Taking a drug holiday from bisphosphonates after years of continuous therapy is becoming more common due to FDA warnings about long-term risks. In a population-based, cohort study, researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham investigated the potential impact of stopping bisphosphonates on hip fracture risk among women who are long-term users of these therapies.. The researchers used Medicare data from 2006-2014 to identify 156,236 women who were long-term, adherent users of bisphosphonates, quantified as being at least 80 percent adherent for three or more years. ...
Lameness in dairy cows is an area of concern from an economic, environmental and animal welfare point of view. While the potential risk factors associated with suboptimal mobility in non-pasture-based systems are evident throughout the literature, the same information is less abundant for pasture-based systems specifically those coupled with seasonal calving, like those in Ireland. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the potential risk factors associated with specific mobility scores (0 = good, 1 = imperfect, 2 = impaired, and 3 = severely impaired mobility) for pasture-based dairy cows. Various cow and herd-level potential risk factors from Irish pasture-based systems were collected and analyzed for their association with suboptimal mobility, whereby a mobility score of 0 refers to cows with optimal mobility and a mobility score ≥ 1 refers to a cow with some form of suboptimal mobility. Combined cow and herd-level statistical models were used to determine the increased or ...
Background: Allogeneic red blood cell transfusions (ABT) are common in older hip fracture patients. Recent research supports a restrictive transfusion policy. The aim was to study variation in hemoglobin (Hb) concentration, and clinical outcomes in these patients.. Results: Cross-sectional study with one-year follow-up in an orthogeriatric unit. Data were obtained from a quality register with demographic and medical information collected by an interdisciplinary team. 106 (22 %) of the 491 patients admitted from September 2011 throughout September 2012 (76 % women, mean age 85 years) received ABT. When given ABT, 80 % had Hb ,80 g/l and mean Hb was 78 g/l. Mean Hb, regardless ABT, showed variation from 125 g/l (±16) on admission to 106 g/l (±17), 101 g/l (±16) and 102 g/l (±14) on 1st, 3rd and 5th postoperative day respectively. Patients with per-/subtrochanteric fractures more often received ABT than those with femur neck fractures (p , 0.001), 70 % of the patients receiving ABT had a ...
This study used nationwide hip fracture data from Denmark and Sweden during 1987-2010 to examine effects of (birth) cohort and period. We found that time trends, cohort, and period effects were different in the two countries. Results also indicated that hip fracture rates may increase in the not so far future.The reasons for the downturn in hip fracture rates remain largely unclear but circumstances earlier in life seem important.We ascertained hip fractures in the populations ≥50 years in Denmark and Sweden in national discharge registers. Country- and sex-specific age-period-cohort (APC) effects during 1987-2010 were evaluated by log-likelihood estimates in Poisson regression models presented as incidence rate ratios (IRR).There were 399,596 hip fractures in SE and 248,773 in DK. Age-standardized hip fracture rate was stable in SE men but decreased in SE women and in DK. Combined period + cohort effects were generally stronger in SE than DK and in women than men. IRR per period ranged from 1.05 to 1
Although older people who sustain a hip fracture are at increased risk of death and suffer long term disability throughout the world, the report indicates that this problem is far more severe in the Russia Federation and in many other countries of the region. Professor Olga Lesnyak, Vice-President of the Russian Association on Osteoporosis and author of the report, called for action, There is an urgent need for health care providers to improve post hip fracture surgical care, she said. While in Western Europe most hip fracture patients receive operative treatment (the optimal standard of care), in the Russian Federation there is an extremely low rate of surgical treatment. Consequently there is high mortality rate after a hip fracture, reaching up to 45-52% during the first year after fracture in some Russian cities. Of the surviving hip fracture patients, 33% remain bed-ridden and 42% are capable of only very limited activities. Only 9% are able to return to the same level of daily activity as ...
Osteoporosis-related fracture is already today a major public health problem and the number of hip fractures is expected to double to 2030. Sweden has one of the highest hip fracture incidences worldwide. This may be explained by several factors: e.g. age, genetic, climatologic, geographic and a relative vitamin D deficiency, secondary to the limited sunlight exposure especially during winter months. Intrinsic and extrinsic factors contribute to a fracture, although a prior low energy fracture is one of the strongest predictors for a subsequent one and this should be a target for secondary fracture prevention in an orthopaedic setting.. Since 1993 all injured patients admitted to the emergency floor and all in-hospital fractures at Umeå University Hospital, Sweden, were registered according to the Injury Data Base, former EHLASS. There were 31,173 fracture events (one or more fractures at the same time), of which 13,931 were in patients ≥ 50 years old. The fracture database was co analyzed ...
Hip fracture represents a substantial acute inflammatory trauma, which may constitute a significant insult to the degenerating brain. Research suggests that an injury of this kind can affect memory and thinking in the future but it is unclear whether, and how, inflammatory trauma injures the brain. The impact of Acute SystematiC inflammation upon cerebRospinal fluId and blood BiomarkErs of brain inflammation and injury in Dementia: a study in acute hip fracture patients (ASCRIBED) explores this relationship, to understand the effect of inflammation on the progression of dementia. This protocol describes a multi-centre sample collection observational study. The study utilises the unique opportunity provided by hip fracture operations undertaken via spinal anaesthesia to collect cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood, to investigate the impact of acute brain inflammation caused by hip fracture on the exacerbation of dementia. We will recruit 200 hip fracture patients with a diagnosis or evidence of dementia;
This report by the Sub-Committee on Best-Practice Pricing and Clinical Quality Information (the Sub-Committee) was endorsed by the Joint Working Party on Pricing for Safety and Quality in Australian Public Hospitals (JWP) of the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) and the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) on 29 June 2015. It outlines the requirements and a potential approach to implementing national best-practice pricing and the provision of hospital-level safety and quality data for hip fracture care in Australian public hospitals.

We also performed a case control analysis with the aim of identifying potential risk factors for hip fracture in nursing home. Among the 211 residents (160 women, mean age 82.2 ± 9.29 years, and 51 men, mean age 77.1 ± 8.9 years), 42 were hip fracture cases, with a prevalence of almost 20%, and a female/male ratio of 6/1.23 fractures preceded institutionalization; of these 19 (17 females and 2 males) occurred within the nursing homes (mean age 83.2 ± 6.3 years). The average ...
Short and long nails exhibited similar treatment failure rates when contemporary cephalomedullary implants were used, according to study results.Researchers retrospectively reviewed medical records and radiographs from patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation of intertrochanteric hip fracture with either a short or long cephalomedullary nail between January 2004 and December
article{7b0e99f3-ff3f-4c2f-a372-e10c11be417f, abstract = {Previous fracture is a well-documented risk factor for future fracture. The aim of this study was to quantify this risk on an international basis and to explore the relationship of this risk with age, sex, and bone mineral density (BMD). We studied 15259 men and 44902 women from 11 cohorts comprising EVOS/EPOS, OFELY, CaMos, Rochester, Sheffield, Rotterdam, Kuopio, DOES, Hiroshima, and two cohorts from Gothenburg. Cohorts were followed for a total of 250000 person-years. The effect of a prior history of fracture on the risk of any fracture, any osteoporotic fracture, and hip fracture alone was examined using a Poisson model for each sex from each cohort. Covariates examined were age, sex, and BMD. The results of the different studies were merged by using the weighted beta-coefficients. A previous fracture history was associated with a significantly increased risk of any fracture compared with individuals without a prior fracture (RR = ...
New York - Smoking has been linked to a higher risk of bone fracture, but researchers have now identified certain lung-related factors -- such as smoking or passive smoke -- may help to predict an individual smokers fracture risks.. Hip fractures are associated with significant morbidity and mortality in smokers with lung disease, but whether lungaspecific factors are associated with fracture risk is unknown, said study authors from the University of Pittsburgh in the US.. According to the researchers, the goal was to determine whether lungaspecific factors are associated with incidents of hip fracture and if they improve risk discrimination of traditional fracture risk models in smokers.. The findings were published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research. In the study of 9,187 adults who currently or formerly smoked, there were 361 new hip fractures reported over a median follow-up of 7.4 years.. Known risk factors associated with experiencing a hip fracture included older age, female ...
To compare the effect of proximal femoral nail anti-rotation and dynamic hip screw in treating the femoral intertrochanteric fractures in elderly patients.From June 2011 to June 2014, totally 158 elderly patients of femoral intertrochanteric fracture were treated by surgery, among whom 68 cases were treated with dynamic hip screws (DHS), and 90 patients were treated with proximal femoral nail anti-rotation (PFNA). The operative time, hospitalization time, weight-bearing time, fracture-healing time, blood loss and the hip function score after the operation were compared between the two groups by using thetest; and the incidence of the postoperative complication was compared between the two groups by using the Chi square test.

On rare occasions, hip fractures can be missed. Approximately 75,000 neck of femur fractures occur in the United Kingdom per annum. Up to ten percent of hip fractures are occult on plain radiograph. This case demonstrates an usual presentation of an incidental neck of femur fracture, which had been missed one year prior. Case Presentation: A 91 year old gentleman presented with incidental finding of left neck of femur fracture on a routine radiograph. A quick review of the patient notes revealed a fall, with a lengthy hospital admission, approximately one year previously. Despite his initial inability to weight-bear and protracted slow progress with physiotherapy no further imaging of the hip was obtained beyond an initial, negative pelvic radiograph. Conclusion: Doctors must be bold in questioning a radiograph that does not fit with the clinical picture. Clinical suspicion of neck of femur fracture in the face of a negative radiograph necessitates further imaging to obtain a definitive answer.
Background: To evaluate general anesthesia with sevoflurane vs spinal anesthesia with low dose lidocaine 5% onhemodynamics changes in patients undergoing hip fracture surgery.Methods: In this randomized double blind trial 100 patients (50 patients in each group) older than 60 years underhip surgery were randomized in general anesthesia with sevoflurane and spinal anesthesia with lidocaine 5%.Hemodynamic changes including mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate, blood loss, pain severity, nausea andvomiting and opioids consumption were compared in two groups.Results: During surgery, difference between two groups regarding changes in mean arterial pressure was notsignificant, but the changes in heart rate were significantly different. Mean arterial pressure changes during recoverybetween two groups were significantly different. But there was no significant difference in heart rate changes. Bleedingin the sevoflurane group was significantly more than spinal group (513.ml vs. 365 ml). Moreover, AS Score
In 2004, Dr. Douglas Kiel, a researcher from Hebrew Senior Life - a terrific nursing home and research institution affiliated with Harvard (also not so shabby a place) - were conducting a study of hip protectors. At the time, evidence that hip-protectors prevented hip fractures was unclear. Previous studies were vulnerable to confounding - those in the group who wore hip protectors may have been different in important ways from those who did not wear hip protectors. Those differences, rather than the hip protectors, may have led to findings that hip proctors protect against fracture. Dr. Kiel and colleagues came up with the novel idea of allowing patients (nursing home residents) to serve as their own controls: they would put a hip protector on only one hip, and the other hip would serve as the control. There would be no differences between study subjects because each subject experienced both the intervention and control at the same time! The NIH funded the study at a cost of 8.5 million ...
OBJECTIVES: To determine whether obesity affects cardiac complications after hip fracture repair.. DESIGN: A population-based historical study using data from the Rochester Epidemiology Project.. SETTING: Olmsted County, Minnesota.. PARTICIPANTS: All urgent hip fracture repairs between 1988 and 2002.. MEASUREMENTS: Body mass index (BMI) was categorized as underweight (,18.5 kg/m2), normal-weight (18.5-24.9 kg/m2), overweight (25.0-29.9 kg/m2), and obese (≥30 kg/m2). Postoperative cardiac complications were defined as myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, congestive heart failure, or new-onset arrhythmias within 1-year of surgery. Incidence rates were estimated for each outcome, and overall cardiac complications were assessed using Cox proportional hazards models adjusted for age, sex, year of surgery, use of beta-blockers, and the Revised Cardiac Risk Index.. RESULTS: Hip fracture repairs were performed in 184 (15.6%) underweight, 640 (54.2%) normal-weight, 251 (21.3%) overweight, and 105 ...
A new study, which analyzed 40 years of Framingham Heart Study data, found an association between lowered rates of hip fractures and decreases in smoking and heavy drinking. The rates of hip fractures in the United States have been declining over the past few decades. Although some experts attribute this change primarily to improved treatments for bone health, a new National Institutes of Health-supported study suggests other factors. These results indicate that modifiable lifestyle factors, along with treatments, may be beneficial to bone health. The findings appear July 27, 2020 in JAMA Internal Medicine.. Timothy Bhattacharyya, M.D., a researcher with the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), part of NIH, led the analysis to determine what may be causing the drop in hip fracture rates. The research team included scientists from NIHs National Cancer Institute, the Hinda and Arthur Marcus Institute for Aging Research, part of the Hebrew SeniorLife, Beth ...
Each year, approximately 1.7 million hip fractures occur worldwide (about 18,000 only in Sweden), mainly in elderly people and women with osteoporosis. A hip fracture can be particularly serious for the elderly; it often entails lengthy rehabilitation and leaves many patients unable to lead an independent life. Moreover, between 10 and 20 per cent of sufferers die from complications. Apart from the human suffering they cause, hip fractures are also very costly to the healthcare services in the amount of care they demand. „If we can identify people with osteoporosis and treat them with drugs, we can reduce the risk of hip fracture, says principal investigator, Associate Professor Torkel Brismar of Karolinska Institutets Department of Clinical Sciences, Intervention and Technology. „Our research shows that DXR is a technique that lends itself well to this, maybe at general health check-ups, or screenings, for example, or when people seek treatment for a suspected hand or wrist fracture. For ...

Snoring is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Previous studies have shown that bone mineral density was significantly lower in patients with OSA than in controls; however, these studies did not focus on fractures. Fragility fractures can lead to long-term disabilities and a decrease in quality of life. The present study aimed to investigate the association between snoring and fragility fractures. This study included 2969 men and 3220 women aged 40 years and older from the Ansung and Ansan cohort studies in Korea. During a 10-year follow-up period, 129 and 273 fracture cases were reported in men and women, respectively. Severe snoring (6-7 nights per week or sleep disturbance by snoring in the next room) was a statistically significant risk factor for fracture (p = 0.006, hazard ratio 1.68, 95% confidence interval 1.16-2.43) after adjusting for covariates related to fragility fracture in women. However, both snoring and severe snoring groups did not show significant associations
A hip fracture is a break occurring at the top of the thigh bone (femur), near the pelvis. An estimated 19 000 people in Australia over the age of 50 were hospitalised due to a hip fracture in 2011-12. As the Australian population continues to age, the number, and associated burden, of people admitted to hospital with a hip fracture is expected to increase annually.. Not all patients with a hip fracture receive best practice care. Time to surgery, pain management and minimising the risk of another fracture are all areas that can be improved. Areas where there are variation in care can be improved if care is timely, coordinated, patient-centred and considers the ongoing needs of each patient.. The Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard and accompanying resources were launched in September 2016, you can watch videos from the launch of the Hip Fracture Care Clinical Care Standard..

INTRODUCTION: Approximately 10% of hip fracture patients die during hospitalization; however, it is not clear what risk factors contribute to the excess mortality. This study sought to examine risk factors of, and to develop prognostic model for, predicting in-hospital mortality among hip fracture patients. METHODS: We studied outcomes among 410 men and 1094 women with a hip fracture who were admitted to a major-teaching-hospital in Sydney (Australia) between 1997 and 2007. Clinical data, including concomitant illnesses, were obtained from inpatient data. The primary outcome of the study was in-hospital mortality regardless of length of stay. A Log-binomial regression model was used to identify risk factors for in-hospital mortality. Using the identified risk factors, prognostic nomograms were developed for predicting short term risk of mortality for an individual. RESULTS: The median duration of hospitalization was 9days. During hospitalization, the risk of mortality was higher in men (9%) than in
TUESDAY, June 24, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Hip fracture surgery patients who are given regional anesthesia have a slightly lower risk of death and a slightly shorter hospital stay than those who receive general anesthesia, a new study shows. Regional anesthesia involves delivery of anesthesia directly to the affected part of the body without putting the patient to sleep.

Five observers using the Jensen modification of the Evans classification and the AO classification (with and without subgroups) classified the radiographs of 88 trochanteric hip fractures. Each observer classified the radiographs independently on two occasions 3 months apart. Kappa statistical analysis was used for determination of intra- and inter-observer variation. For the Jensen classification, the mean kappa value was 0.52 (range: 0.44-0.60) for intra-observer variation and 0.34 (range: 0.17-0.38) for inter-observer variation. For the AO system with subgroups, the mean kappa value was 0.42 (range: 0.20-0.65) for intra-observer variation and 0.33 (range: 0.14-0.48) for inter-observer variation. For the AO classification system without subgroups, the mean kappa value was 0.71 (range: 0.60-0.81) for intra-observer variation and 0.62 (range: 0.50-0.71) for inter-observer variation. We recommend classifying trochanteric fractures into three groups as that of the AO system without the subgroups. For ease
A severe impact - in a car crash, for example - can cause hip fractures in people of all ages. In older adults, a hip fracture is most often a result of a fall from a standing height. In people with very weak bones, a hip fracture can occur simply by standing on the leg and twisting.. A combination of factors may increase your risk of a hip fracture, including:. Age. The rate of hip fractures increases substantially with age. As you age, your bone density and muscle mass both decrease. Older age may also bring vision and balance problems, along with slower reaction time to avoid falling when you feel unsteady. If youre inactive, your muscles tend to weaken even more as you age. All of these factors combined can increase your risk of a hip fracture.. Your sex. Women lose bone density at a faster rate than men do. The drop in estrogen levels that occurs with menopause accelerates bone loss, increasing the risk of hip fractures. However, men also can develop dangerously low levels of bone ...
Researchers tracked the incidence of hip fracture occurring within one year of cataract surgery in 400,000 Medicare patients from 2002 to 2009. They then compared the data with hip fracture incidence in a matched group of patients who had cataracts but did not have them removed. Researchers attributed the 16% decrease in patients adjusted odds of experiencing a hip fracture to improved vision that enabled them to avoid falling ...
The results of this study show that low body fat mass is an independent risk factor for fractures amongst women but not men. Women with, for instance, ,20% body fat have a 3.5 times higher risk of hip fracture and 2.2 times increased risk of any type of fracture compared with women with ∼40% body fat. We observed a positive association between fat mass and bone properties (as measured by heel QUS in our study), but the magnitude of this association may not have been large enough to account for the effect of fat mass on fracture risk. Risk of hip fracture amongst women almost halved with each 10% increase in %BF (Table 3), and a nonlinear reduction in risk was also observed for any type of fracture. Differences in findings between studies may reflect a lack of consideration of possible sex difference and nonlinear associations.. We observed the harmful effects of low fat mass on hip and other fractures only amongst women. Although it is possible that the lack of a significant association ...
Hip fractures may have long-lasting effects that result in eventual death by signalling or actually inducing a progressive decline in health, said Ioannidis. Our results also showed that vertebral fracture was an independent predictor of death. In addition, the researchers discovered that all types of bone breaks were more common among women than men, with the exception of rib fractures. They also determined that fractures were associated with other negative consequences such as increased pain, immobility and reduced health-related quality of life.. People should be aware that fractures are a serious problem in osteoporosis, Ioannidis said. They do not just reduce health-related quality of life, they actually cause death. So hip and spinal fractures need be taken very seriously, and prevention should be paramount in treating patients with osteoporosis.. ...
Studies have shown that elderly patients with osteoportic fractures of the hip have decreased bone mineral density (BMD) in the femoral neck in the first year following the fracture. However, a new prospective study of 21 patients found that between one and six years following the hip fractures there was a dramatic increase in BMD at both the femoral neck and lumbar spine measurement sites.. In many cases, the loss of BMD that occurred in the first year after a fracture was completely recouped, according to the study presented Wednesday in scientific paper 29.. The researchers observe that although the investigation is small, the results of the study suggest that pharmacological intervention with agents such as bisphosphonates to prevent accelerated loss of BMD after a hip fracture may not need to be continued indefinitely, if return to baseline BMD is the objective.. Although some studies have demonstrated a direct relationship between the level of activity and increased BMD, there was a ...
MONDAY, Feb. 27, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Older people who suffer a hip fracture face a much higher risk of death soon after the injury, but the risk persists over the longer term, a large study indicates.. Researchers found that the risk of death among people over 60 nearly tripled during the first year following a hip fracture.. However, hip fractures were also still linked to a nearly twofold increased risk of dying eight years or more after the injury.. The new findings are similar to those of previous studies on hip fracture, said study lead author Michail Katsoulis. Hes a medical statistician with the Hellenic Health Foundation in Athens, Greece.. Katsoulis noted that post-operative complications, such as cardiac and pulmonary ones, have been mostly implicated for the excess short-term mortality after the fracture, that is within the first year after. Those complications included both blood clots and pneumonia.. The study cant definitively show a cause-and-effect relationship. But ...
1,200 people with hip fracture are now on the Hipsprint database. Weve been overwhelmed by the positive response from physios to engage in this audit, said Ruth ten Hove, the CSPs head of research and development.. It sends a really strong message about physios commitment to service improvement for this frail and vulnerable group.. Hipsprint launched on 1 May and is an opportunity to gain invaluable insight into the rehabilitation of people after hip fracture. So far, almost 440 members have signed up from 240 services, and the audit has captured the care pathways of 1,200 people who have fractured their hip.. The project wants to gather examples of hip fracture care across acute, intermediate and community care to inform developments and improvements in physiotherapy.. Ms ten Hove called for even more members to contribute to the project. The more data we have, the stronger will be the findings and the stronger will be recommendation, she said.. If anyone has any problems with any ...
Aims and objectives: This study was done to evaluate the functional and radiographic outcome of PFN in treatment of proximal femoral fracture and more common technical, mechanical complications and intraoperative difficulties during the implant implementation.. Materials & Methods: We conducted a retrospective study with ten cases of proximal femoral fractures treated between September 2017 and September 2018, which were accepted at the Department of Orthopedics, the University Hospital of Trauma and the American Hospital in Tirana. Fractures are classified according to classification AO and Boyd-Griffin. The age range of patients taking the study was 20-90 years. Ten cases were followed at regular intervals and the final assessment was made at the end of the 6 month period. In the result, functional clinical assessment according to Harris hip score was done .. Results: In our study,mean age was 66 y.o, 7 male and 3 females. Mean of hospitalization time 6 days, mean operation time 120 min. In ...
In a population-based sample of British women aged over 70 years old, lean mass and peak lower limb muscle force were both independently associated with hip strength and fracture risk indices, thereby suggesting a potential benefit of promoting leg muscle strengthening exercise for the prevention of hip fractures in postmenopausal women. INTRODUCTION: To investigate cross-sectional associations of lean mass and physical performance, including lower limb muscle function, with hip strength, geometry and fracture risk indices (FRIs) in postmenopausal women. METHODS: Data were from the Cohort of Skeletal Health in Bristol and Avon. Total hip (TH) and femoral neck (FN) bone mineral density (BMD), hip geometry and total body lean mass (TBLM) were assessed by dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Finite element analysis of hip DXA was used to derive FN, intertrochanteric and subtrochanteric FRIs. Grip strength, gait speed and chair rise time were measured objectively. Lower limb peak muscle force and muscle ...

We found the risk of hip fracture to be decreased with angiotensin II receptor blockers (plain and combination products); use of ACE inhibitors was associated with increased risk among users aged ,80 years and decreased among those 80 years and older. The human studies conducted previously have provided conflicting evidence regarding the effects of ACE inhibitors on bone metabolism and fracture risk, whereas angiotensin II receptor blockers appear to be osteoprotective. A population-based case-control study in Denmark reported a 14 % reduction in hip fracture risk (adjusted OR 0.86, 95 % CI 0.80-0.92) in users of ACE inhibitor compared with nonusers; the crude OR was not significant. There were no major differences according to sex, age and drug dosage [25]. Another case-control study in the United Kingdom revealed a decreased risk of any fracture for longer-term current users (≥20 prescriptions) of ACE inhibitors (adjusted OR, 0.81; 95 % CI 0.73-0.89), though, subanalysis for hip fracture was ...
