    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  2. 7. Distal Radius Fractures aspects on radiological and clinical outcome and evaluation of a new classification system

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Mats Wadsten; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Distal radius fracture; Buttazzoni classification; volar; comminution; reliability; radiological outcome; clinical outcome; late displacement; ortopedi; Orthopaedics;

    Sammanfattning : Distal radius fracture (DRF) is the most common fracture encountered in clinical practice. Every year, more than 20000 people in Sweden suffer from this injury. It has been shown that there is a correlation between malalignment and function following distal radial fractures and malunion may cause persistent pain and disability. LÄS MER

  3. 8. Genetic and Environmental Influences on Bone and Fractures

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Helene Wagner; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; heritability; twin study; osteoporotic fractures; vertebral fractures; balance; bone mineral density; bone area; bone markers; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Sammanfattning : Sweden and Norway have the worldwide highest incidence of osteoporotic fractures. As these fractures constitute a tremendous and growing problem, primary prevention is of great importance. The principal causes of an osteoporotic fracture are a fall and a fragile skeleton. LÄS MER

  4. 9. Coffee Consumption in Relation to Osteoporosis and Fractures Observational Studies in Men and Women

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Sammanfattning : During the past decades, the incidence of osteoporotic fractures has increased dramatically in the Western world. Consumption of coffee and intake of caffeine have in some studies been found to be associated with increased risk of osteoporotic fractures, but overall results from previous research are inconsistent.

  5. 10. Displaced Femoral Neck Fractures A prospective randomized study of clinical outcome, nutrition and costs

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Torsten Johansson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2002]

    Sammanfattning : Displaced femoral neck fractures comprise more than a third of all hip fractures. There is controversy as to the optimal treatment. Despite attempts to improve the methods for internal fixation, complication rates have been almost unchanged: 20-40% non-union and late segmental collapse in another 10-20%. LÄS MER
