  1. 1. Distal femur fracture in the elderly patient

    Författare :Martin Paulsson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Distal femur fracture; Geriatric patients; Weight-bearing; Recovery; Secondary displacement; Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis MIPO ; Fracture alignment; Fracture classification;

    Sammanfattning : Studies on the epidemiology of distal femur fractures show a vast increase in low-energy trauma-associated fractures in older ages. Age-related changes in bones lead to loss of bone matrix and increased porosity, which entails an increased risk for fractures and different fracture patterns than in younger individuals. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Aspects of bone quality and risk assessments in fracture and elective orthopaedic patients

    Författare :Camilla Bergh; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fracture; Fracture incidence; Epidemiology; Mortality; Osteoporosis; Frailty; Spinal stenosis; Bone quality; Bone mineral density;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Bone quality, bone strength, and bone remodelling are important in many orthopaedic conditions and can have an impact on fracture incidence, bone healing, implant failure, and different outcome aspects. There is relatively sparse information on fracture incidence and mortality both for all fractures compiled and for some of the individual fracture locations. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Effects of anabolic hormone treatment in elderly patients with hip fracture

    Författare :Margareta Hedström; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :Hip fracture; IGF-I; lean body mass; BMD; anabolic steroids; growth hormone.;

    Sammanfattning : The principal aims of these studies were to investigate the status of hip fracture patients regarding BMD, body composition and some nutritional factors at the time of the fracture and changes in these variables during the postoperative period. A further aim was to determine whether anabolic hormone treatment could had any beneficial effects after a hip fracture. LÄS MER
