Vitamin D status and bone mineral density in the Chinese population: a review

Summary Low vitamin D status is associated with low bone mass which, in turn, is an important predictor of fracture. However, data on this relationship in non-Caucasian populations are scarce. This review shows such an association in the Chinese population in five of the 11 included studies. Introduction In the elderly population, the serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] ...

High prevalence of secondary factors for bone fragility in patients with a recent fracture independently of BMD

Summary In this study, we demonstrate a high prevalence of secondary factors in patients with a recent fracture independently of bone mineral density (BMD). Our results suggest that patients with a recent fracture should be screened for secondary factors for bone fragility regardless of BMD values. Introduction Secondary factors for bone fragility are common in patients with ...

Accumulation of risk factors associated with poor bone health in older adults

Summary Clustering of factors linked with poor bone health is common in older adults and is associated with lower bone density and increased fracture risk in women. Purpose Many factors are associated with bone mineral density, which in turn is strongly linked with risk of fragility fracture. We assessed how commonly clustering of risk factors occurs and related such clustering to ...

Chronic widespread bodily pain is increased among individuals with history of fracture: findings from UK Biobank

Summary In this cross-sectional analysis of the UK Biobank cohort, a history of fracture was associated with increased risk of current widespread chronic pain. Purpose/Introduction We aimed to test the hypothesis that a history of fracture is associated with reporting chronic widespread bodily pain (CWBP), using baseline data from the UK Biobank cohort, comprising 502,656 people ...

Adolescent undernutrition and early adulthood bone mass in an urbanizing rural community in India

Summary The long-term effects on bone health of nutritional status in adolescence are unclear. The impact of adolescent and current body mass on bone mass in young adulthood in rural India was assessed. Current lean mass was a more important determinant of bone mass than thinness during adolescence in this population. Purpose/introduction Adolescence is a crucial period for ...

Compliance and persistence with daily, weekly, and monthly bisphosphonates for osteoporosis in Japan: analysis of data from the CISA

Summary Compliance and persistence with daily, weekly, and monthly bisphosphonates (BPs) for osteoporosis were assessed using data from the Platform for Clinical Information Statistical Analysis (CISA) database that contains data of prescriptions in 13 university hospitals in Japan. The analysis revealed compliance and persistence improved as the dosing interval increases. Purpose ...

Estimating osteoporotic fracture risk following a wrist fracture: a tale of two systems

Summary The WHO fracture risk assessment (FRAX) and Canadian Association of Radiologists and Osteoporosis Canada (CAROC) tools can both be used to determine an individual’s 10-year risk of osteoporotic fracture. However, these tools differ in their risk calculation. For participants <65 years with a wrist fracture, FRAX provides a lower fracture risk estimate than CAROC resulting ...

Publication outcomes of the abstracts presented at the 2011 European Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculo-Skeletal Diseases (ECCEO-IOF11)

Summary The publication outcomes of the abstracts presented during the ECCEO-IOF 2011 reflect a high research productivity, support the robustness of the selection process conducted by the Scientific Advisory Committee and suggest that IOF-ESCEO WCO is successful in its mission to promote and disseminate research. Background and Objective The European (now World) Congress on ...

Osteoporosis management and fractures in the Métis of Ontario, Canada

Summary Half of Métis citizens, compared to less than 10 % of the general population of Ontario, reside in northern regions, with little access to bone mineral density (BMD) testing. Métis citizens had lower sex-specific and age-standardized rates of BMD testing, yet similar rates of fracture (both sexes) and pharmacotherapy (women only). Purpose To examine osteoporosis management ...

Lower bone mineral density in Somali women living in Sweden compared with African–Americans

Summary Vitamin D deficiency can lead to osteomalacia. Bone mineral density was lower in Somali women, living in Sweden, in relation to both the American and the African–American reference populations. The majority, 73 %, had vitamin D deficiency, and supplementation should be considered to prevent from osteomalacia, osteoporosis and future fractures. Purpose Low vitamin D can lead ...

Bone fractures and feeling at risk for osteoporosis among women in Japan: patient characteristics and outcomes in the National Health and Wellness Survey

Summary Women aged 50 and older in Japan were compared according to perceived risk for osteoporosis and fracture history. Perceived risk was associated with family history of osteoporosis but few other risk factors. Few felt at risk, and perception was only loosely related to epidemiological risks, indicating a need for patient education. Purpose Osteoporosis is prevalent but ...

Osteoporosis in the European Union: medical management, epidemiology and economic burden

Summary This report describes the epidemiology, burden, and treatment of osteoporosis in the 27 countries of the European Union (EU27). Introduction Osteoporosis is characterized by reduced bone mass and disruption of bone architecture, resulting in increased risk of fragility fractures which represent the main clinical consequence of the disease. Fragility fractures are associated ...

Osteoporosis in the European Union: a compendium of country-specific reports

Summary This report describes epidemiology, burden, and treatment of osteoporosis in each of the 27 countries of the European Union (EU27). Introduction In 2010, 22 million women and 5.5 million men were estimated to have osteoporosis in the EU; and 3.5 million new fragility fractures were sustained, comprising 620,000 hip fractures, 520,000 vertebral fractures, 560,000 forearm ...

SCOPE: a scorecard for osteoporosis in Europe

Summary The scorecard summarises key indicators of the burden of osteoporosis and its management in each of the member states of the European Union. The resulting scorecard elements were then assembled on a single sheet to provide a unique overview of osteoporosis in Europe. Introduction The scorecard for osteoporosis in Europe (SCOPE) is an independent project that seeks to raise ...

Effective treatment of a steroid-induced femoral neck fracture nonunion with a once-weekly administration of teriparatide in a rheumatoid patient: a case report

Introduction Nonunion of femoral neck fractures frequently occurs in elderly patients. In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, reoperation rates after internal fixation of a displaced femoral neck fracture increase by up to 60 %. Revision surgery with arthroplasty is often preferred for nonunion of femoral neck fractures because there are few effective options for conservative ...
