    Sammanfattning : Background: As much as 40–50% of children are expected to sustain fractures during growth. A childhood fracture is also associated with high risk of fractures in adult life. Previous research has shown that fracture incidence has not been stable and some studies suggest that this has also continued during recent decades. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The mevalonate pathway is an important biosynthetic pathway, found in all cells of virtually all known pro- as well as eukaryotic organisms. This thesis is an investigation into the use of two drugs, originally developed for different applications, but both affecting the mevalonate pathway, in to models of fracture repair. LÄS MER

  3. 13. Long-Term Outcome of Fractures of the Thoracic and Lumbar Spine

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Sammanfattning : From the radiographic archives at the Malmö University Hospital, Malmö, Sweden, we identified children below age 16 years (n=74) and adolescents between 16 to 18 years (n=40) with a clinically and radiographically diagnosed thoracic or lumbar vertebral fracture between 1950 to 1971 (with exception of two years of missing radiographs), and all adults above age 18 years (n=39) with a non-operatively treated thoracic or lumbar burst fracture during the years 1965 to 1973. Fractures were classified according to Denis. LÄS MER

  4. 14. Falls, fractures and function. Focus on women with a distal forearm fracture

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Physical Therapy, Lund University Hospital

    Författare :Eva Nordell; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical medicine; elderly; falls; Distal forearm fracture; fractures; health-related quality of life; risk factors; physical performance; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; kinesitherapy; revalidation;

    Sammanfattning : Falls and fractures in older people are a common and increasing health problem which causes physical, social and psychological problems for the individual and is costly to society. The aims of this thesis were to investigate accidental falls of patients aged 65 - 74 who attended an orthopedic emergency ward, to investigate reliability of the modified figure of eight (MFE) and compare it with other balance performance tests, to investigate whether patients with a distal forearm fracture exhibited risk factors for new falls and fractures, and to follow physical performance and evaluate health-related quality of life in women after a distal forearm fracture.

    Sammanfattning : Approximately half of all women will sustain a fracture after the age of 50. Fractures may cause long-term disability and excess mortality. Identifying individuals at high risk of sustaining a fracture is important in the development of primary and secondary prevention strategies. LÄS MER
