Bone Turnover Marker Profiling and Fracture Risk in Older Women: Fracture Risk from Age 75 to 90.

Calcif Tissue Int 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit, Department of Clinical Sciences Malmö, Lund University, Malmö, Sweden.

Purpose: A major challenge in osteoporosis is to identify individuals at high fracture risk. We investigated six bone turnover markers (BTMs) to determine association with specific fracture types; the time-frame for risk prediction and whether these are influenced by age at assessment.

Methods: Population-based OPRA cohort (n = 1044) was assessed at ages 75, 80, 85 and fractures documented for up to 15 years. Read More

Quantitating Age-Related BMD Textural Variation from DXA Region-Free-Analysis: A Study of Hip Fracture Prediction in Three Cohorts.

J Bone Miner Res 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Department of Oncology and Metabolism, The University of Sheffield, Sheffield, S10 2RX, U.K.

The risk of osteoporotic fracture is inversely related to bone mineral density (BMD), but how spatial BMD pattern influences fracture risk remains incompletely understood. This study used a pixel-level spatio-temporal atlas of proximal femoral BMD in 13,338 white European women (age 20 to 97 years) to quantitate age-related texture variation in BMD maps and generate a 'reference' map of bone ageing. We introduce a new index, called Densitometric Bone Age (DBA), as the age at which an individual site-specific BMD map (the proximal femur is studied here) best matches the median ageing trajectory at that site in terms of the root mean squared error (RMSE).

Primary Hemiarthroplasty for the Treatment of Basicervical Femoral Neck Fractures.

Cureus 2022 May 22;14(5):e25210. Epub 2022 May 22.

Orthopaedic Surgery, Wright State University, Dayton, USA.

Purpose Basicervical femoral neck fractures are uncommon injuries that occur at the extracapsular base of the femoral neck at its transition with the intertrochanteric line. Controversy remains in the orthopedic literature as to the optimal method of treatment for this fracture type given the inherent instability and greater rate of implant failure with traditional fixation constructs. The purpose of this study is to quantify the incidence and preferred treatment methods of basicervical hip fractures at a single, regional, Level 1 trauma center and to identify differences in postoperative complications between treatment options.

Avascular Necrosis of Femoral Head-Overview and Current State of the Art.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2022 Jun 15;19(12). Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Faculty of Medicine, Collegium Medicum, Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski University in Warsaw, Woycickiego 1/3, 01-938 Warsaw, Poland.

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head is caused by disruption of the blood supply to the proximal femur. The alterations in the blood supply may occur following a traumatic event or result from a non-traumatic cause. Femoral neck fracture and hip dislocation and associated surgical procedures, corticosteroid therapy, and alcohol abuse frequently lead to AVN development. Read More

Department of Morphological Sciences, Carol Davila University of Medicine and Pharmacy, RO-020021 Bucharest, Romania.

Osteochondral lesions (OCLs) that are frequently encountered in skeletally immature and adult patients are more common than once thought, and their incidence rate is rising. These lesions can appear in many synovial joints of the body, such as the shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle, occurring most often in the knee. The term osteochondral lesion includes a vast spectrum of pathologies such as osteochondritis dissecans, osteochondral defects, osteochondral fractures, and osteonecrosis of the subchondral bone.

A Preliminary Analysis of a Modified Anterior Approach to Hip Pericapsular Neurolysis for Inoperable Hip Fracture Using the IDEAL Framework.

Healthcare (Basel) 2022 May 28;10(6). Epub 2022 May 28.

Department of Anaesthesia and Operating Theatre Services, Kwong Wah Hospital, 25 Waterloo Road, Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong, China.

With an increasingly ageing population, there is a growing impact of fragility hip fracture on the healthcare system and on society as a whole. Oral and injectable analgesics are often insufficient whilst traction and regional blocks do not allow patients to be discharged easily. While the conventional approach of ultrasound-guided anterior hip pericapsular neurolysis can help a lot of inoperable hip fracture patients to relieve their fracture pain and facilitate subsequent nursing care, enormous technical challenges are encountered in some cases.

Geroscience 2022 Jun 23. Epub 2022 Jun 23.

Department of Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, Durham, NC, 27701, USA.

Translating our knowledge of the biological aging from animal models to humans may give rise to novel approaches of targeting multiple aging-related diseases simultaneously and increasing health span. Here, for the first time, we use transcriptomic signatures of monocytes to identify biological aging pathways underlying multiple aging-related diseases in humans. The ordinal logistic regression was used to cross-sectionally investigate transcriptomics of the comorbidity index in 1264 community-based Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) adults, 47% Caucasian, 32% Hispanic, 21% African American, and 51% female, aged 55-94 years.

Rambam Medical Center.

Introduction: Cycling in Israel: Cycling in Israel is a common sport which is considered to be beneficial to health. However, questions arise about its impact on bone health, due to publications reporting a decrease in bone density in cyclists and the presence of fractures that characterize a relatively older population in relatively young cyclists. Exercise and bone health: It has been proven that a sporty lifestyle, exercise in general and cycling in particular, lowers the chance of fractures of the proximal femur. Read More
