Gore didn't know it, the vertebrae in her spine had most likely begun to fracture
, a slow, often painless collapsing of bone called "microfractures," according to Laura Tosi, MD, chair of the Women's Health Issues Committee of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and chief of Orthopedic Surgery at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC.
is caused by two distinct phenomena: pulsations in melt pressure and skin rupture.
In one of the newly-published studies, CORTOSS was percutaneously injected into the fractured vertebra of 24 patients with pain related to vertebral fractures
caused by osteoporotic and metastatic disease.
Slows bone loss, increases spinal bone density Anecdotally may relieve fracture
He further noted that it "demonstrated the lowest rate of deep-vein thrombosis ever recorded for hip fracture
and hip or knee replacement clinical trials.
For example, the relation between the number and the lengths of fractures
in many types of rock follow a fractal, power-law relationship on scales that range from long fissures in Earth's crust down to microscopic cracks in small stones.
growth is incremental and a result of stress conditions at the fracture
The mode of fracture
in the ductile region is by ductile tearing, with tear lines visible at the fracture
surface and the side walls being sucked in .
Because these fractures
usually return to their normal shape during growth, sometimes the doctor does not have to manipulate this fracture
back into position.
At slow rates, fracture
occurs by weak, viscous flow without breaking chemical bonds.
There are eight studies (18a-h) which purport to show no association between fluoride levels in drinking water and hip fracture
, but among these, four (18a-d) actually show an association between fluoride levels and bone fracture
rates--including hip fracture
Compression A compression fracture
occurs if spongy bone, like that in the vertebrae of the spine, is crushed.
The hydraulic fracturing technique uses fracturing fluid to fracture
the reservoir rocks.
Giving bone-strengthening medication routinely to all elderly women who sustain a wrist fracture
would reduce subsequent hip fractures
by about a quarter, but at a cost of more than $200,000 per prevented fracture
, a study showed.
5) When an atlas fracture
is associated with an axis fracture
, patients may undergo external immobilization to allow C1 to heal prior to surgical repair of C2.
