    Sammanfattning : Osteoporosis is a systemic, skeletal disease with the consequence of an increased risk of sustaining a fracture, one of the most common fractures being a vertebral fracture. The lifetime risk of sustaining a clinically diagnosed vertebral fracture from age 50 years onward is 8% in men and 15% in women. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Studies on the complications and prediction of mortality after hip fracture surgery

    Författare :Carl Mellner; Sebastian Mukka; Per Morberg; Olof Sköldenberg; Björn Knutsson; Lasse Lapidus; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hip fracture; femoral neck fracture; treatment; total hip arthroplasty; hemiarthroplasty; internal fixation; outcome; infection; periprosthetic joint infection; mortality;

    Sammanfattning : An elderly patient who sustains a hip fracture has increased morbidity and mortality. Scandinavia presents the highest incidence annually of hip fractures worldwide. Femoral neck fracture (FNF) of the hip accounts for 50% of all hip fractures in geriatric patients. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Improving the quality of care for hip fracture patients : studies on fast-track to surgery and adverse events

    Författare :Paula Kelly-Pettersson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; hip fracture;

    Sammanfattning : Hip fractures in the elderly are common and are associated with high comorbidity and mortality. Their care and treatment present challenges for nurses and other healthcare professionals and impose a substantial burden on healthcare resources. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Alternative techniques in trochanteric hip fracture surgery. Clinical and biomechanical studies on the Medoff sliding plate and the Twin hook

    Författare :Ola Olsson; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ortopedi; Kirurgi; traumatology; hip fracture; trochanteric; internal fixation; radiography; randomised trial; complication; biomechanics; orthopaedics; Surgery; traumatologi;

    Sammanfattning : In allowing compression along the femoral shaft (uniaxial dynamization) and optional compression along the femoral neck (biaxial dynamization), the Medoff sliding plate (MSP) represents a new principle in the fixation of trochanteric hip fractures. The Twin hook with 2 apical hooks was designed as an alternative to the lag screw. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Complications in trochanteric and subtrochanteric femoral fractures

    Författare :Leif Mattisson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The hip fracture is a major public health problem. The majority of hip fracture patients are elderly with comorbidities and there is a strong association with osteoporosis, especially for the extracapsular (trochanteric and subtrochanteric) types of fractures. LÄS MER
