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
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. Improving the quality of care for hip fracture patients : studies on fast-track to surgery and adverse events
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. Alternative techniques in trochanteric hip fracture surgery. Clinical and biomechanical studies on the Medoff sliding plate and the Twin hook
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
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
