Males with fracture were more than females with a fracture.
Trends in fracture incidence: A population-based study over 20 years.
They used a statistical method that determined whether HIV status by itself (being HIV-positive or negative) raised the fracture risk in each of these three age groups, independently of risk factors like white race, smoking, drinking too much alcohol, low weight, and other illnesses.
Among men with HIV, 182 of 1221 had a new fracture during the study, compared with 197 of 1408 men without HIV.
Conclusions: Ulnar fracture
patterns observed did not easily fall into previously described categories, and we have proposed anew classification system.
It is suggested that as soon as the patient is stabilized, the open fracture
should be dealt with in the operating theatre within 6 hours of injury.
Other causes for this type of fracture
were interpersonal violence, falls and sports.
External fixation allows fracture
reduction to normal bony length via a rigid external support.
More studies12-15 have reported that complications in operative fixation of calcaneal fractures
were influenced by the patient's age, cause and type of fracture
, surgical wait time, body mass index, reduction of Bohler's angle, quality of the suture, skin distraction method, and timing of the suture removal.
The authors previously reported on their method for simulating fractures
of RSW [1,2,3] and their method of generating the fracture
risk by representing RSW with beam elements.
This technique offers stable fixation without disturbance of the periosteal blood supply and fracture
hematoma, which contributes to fracture
Anderson and D'Alonzo reported that the prognosis of odontoid fractures
depended on its fracture
To assess the direct costs of hip fracture
treatment, the investigators used Medicare reimbursement data to price treatment components, including inpatient care as well as surgical and anesthesia services.
Major findings: If all women 65 years of age and older who have had a distal radius fracture
went on to receive bisphosphonate treatment, 94,888 lifetime hip fractures
would be avoided, but at a cost of $205,534 per averted fracture
, and with an additional 19,464 atypical femur fractures
Patient who fractured their hip are at high risk of fracture
