or buckling resistance was increased by the trabecular bone supporting the most stressed cortical sector in each femoral neck. We repeated these measurements and calculations in an age- and sex-matched series of femoral necks donated by women who had suffered intracapsular hip fracture and controls, using histological measurements of cortical thickness to improve accuracy. With normal aging, trabecular BMD declined asymmetrically, fastest in the supero-lateral one-half (in antero-posterior projection (...) Femoral Neck Trabecular Bone: Loss with Ageing and Role in Preventing Fracture. Hip fracture risk rises 100- to 1000-fold over six decades of age, but only a minor part of this increase is explained by declining BMD. A potentially independent cause of fragility is cortical thinning predisposing to local crushing, in which bone tissue's material disintegrates at the microscopic level when compressed beyond its capacity to maintain integrity. Elastic instability or buckling of a much thinned

symptoms. Asymptomatic, low-grade bone stress injuries of the femoral and tibial shaft are common in female recruits undergoing heavy physical training. Because these injuries seem to remain constant or even disappear despite continued heavy physical activity, we do not recommend routine screening of asymptomatic trainees. As some bone stress fractures may have severe consequences (eg, in the femoral neck), symptomatic bone stress injuries should be examined and treated. (...) Bone Stress Injuries Are Common in Female Military Trainees: A Preliminary Study. Although bone stress injuries are common in male military trainees, it is not known how common they are in female trainees. It also is unclear whether asymptomatic bone stress injuries heal if intensive training is continued. We prospectively followed 10 female trainees of a military Reserve Officer Course. The subjects underwent clinical and MRI examinations of the pelvis, thighs, and lower legs at the beginning

503. Spontaneous bilateral femoral neck fractures associated with a low serum level of vitamin D in a young adult. (Abstract)

Spontaneous bilateral femoral neck fractures associated with a low serum level of vitamin D in a young adult. Bilateral femoral neck fracture is an extremely rare injury in young adults. We report a young adult with bilateral femoral neck fracture after minimal stress. The current case did not demonstrate any abnormality on laboratory data, except for a low serum level of vitamin D(3). Although, in our case, the patient underwent bilateral femoral head arthroplasty, early diagnosis could have (...) been helpful to avoid further displacement of the fracture and surgical treatment.

504. Acetabular Retroversion in Military Recruits with Femoral Neck Stress Fractures. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Acetabular Retroversion in Military Recruits with Femoral Neck Stress Fractures. Acetabular retroversion (AR) alters load distribution across the hip and is more prevalent in pathologic conditions involving the hip. We hypothesized the abnormal orientation and mechanical changes may predispose certain individuals to stress injuries of the femoral neck. We retrospectively reviewed the anteroposterior (AP) pelvic radiographs of 54 patients (108 hips) treated for a femoral neck stress fracture (...) (FNSF) and compared these radiographs with those for a control group of patients with normal pelvic radiographs. We determined presence of a crossover sign (COS), femoral neck abnormalities, and neck shaft angle. The prevalence of a positive COS was greater in patients with stress fractures than in the control subjects (31 of 54 [57%] versus 17 of 54 [31%], respectively) and higher than for control subjects reported in the literature. Thirteen patients had radiographic changes of the femoral neck

for rapid definitive treatment of older people with trauma so that these patients could walk immediately. This group also stressed the need for team care, full and open communication with the patient and family and utilised the principles of geriatric assessment [1]. Recently the British Geriatrics Society has published a framework document on Orthogeriatric Services. The outcomes of fracture in older people have been shown to be much better when there is close collaboration between departments (...) , fewer orthopaedic complications and less need for major re-operations [11]. As surgical techniques improved, the opportunity for immediate postoperative weight-bearing was realised. This applies to both intra- and extracapsular fractures. The need for appropriate surgical technique has been stressed [12]. In the 1970s and 1980s the concepts of early mobilisation, home rehabilitation and support services after hip fracture were recognised as an alternative to the transfer of patients

, or proximal fibula), post-hip and vertebral fracture, and death. The cycle length was 6 months and the time horizon was lifetime. Women in the no fracture state could develop a distal forearm, hip, clinical vertebral, radiographic vertebral, or other fracture, at which time transition to that post-fracture state occurred. Different combinations of starting age (55, 65 and 75 years) and femoral neck T-score (-1.5, -2.0 and -2.4) were considered. The model incorporated an increased relative risk (...) . For women taking alendronate, the relative risk for incident vertebral fractures (over placebo) was 0.54 for those with a femoral neck T-score of -2.0 to -2.4, and 0.82 for those with a T-score of -1.5. The relative risk for non-vertebral fractures was 1.0. The mortality associated with acute hip fracture was 1.375 times that of the base rate. Quality of life values were as follows: no fracture state, 0.84; post-distal forearm fracture, 0.82 in the first year, then 0.839; post-other fracture, 0.753

There was an increase in BMD when weights equalling 80% of maximal back extensor strength were used (1 study). A site-specific positive effect of exercise on BMD was found in the femoral trochanter (6 studies), and an increase or maintenance in BMD reported at the femoral neck (5 studies). A positive exercise effect was reported at Ward’s triangle (3 studies) and on BMD in the lumbar spine (4 studies). A positive exercise effect

for femoral head AVN have considerable variation, but certain generalizations can safely be slated. Namely, the clinical results of core decompression alone deteriorate with more advanced lesions. The addition of cancellous bone grafting appears to slightly enhance clinical outcomes if subchondral fracture is present. The addition of demineralized bone matrix to core decompression confers little (if any) clinical response, while the effects of bone morphogenic protein remain uncertain. The supplemental (...) implementation of electrical stimulation with core decompression has provided disappointing results. Low-frequency pulsed electric and magnetic fields (PEMF) may offer more promise, but clinical results thus far are inconclusive. The placement of a structural graft through a core tract into the femoral head generally yields disappointing results. However, grafts placed into the femoral neck or directly into the femoral head are more promising. Free vascularized fibular grafting significantly alters disease

516. Failure mechanisms of total hip resurfacing: implications for the present. (Abstract)

prostheses implanted between 1977 and 1981. Forty-one of 62 joints had failed, representing a failure rate of 66%. The time to failure averaged 9.7 years with a range of 6 months to 21.5 years. There were 23 femoral failures (37%). Eleven were caused by femoral fracture, and 12 were caused by femoral loosening. All late femoral failures (greater than 10 years postoperatively) showed narrowing of the femoral neck secondary to stress shielding. There were 18 acetabular failures (29%) with 10 failing (...) secondary to polyethylene wear and eight failing secondary to acetabular loosening. Failure of the Indiana conservative hip prosthesis continues over time related to femoral and acetabular failure mechanisms. These data should be considered in the context of growing enthusiasm for resurfacing with new bearing surfaces and cementless fixation.

517. Surgical variables affect the mechanics of a hip resurfacing system. (Abstract)

. Our data indicate the local stresses and strains associated with implant loosening and neck fracture were reduced by placing the implant in a valgus orientation and covering reamed cancellous bone, but unloading of the femoral head, found for all variables examined, may lead to adverse bone remodeling. (...) Surgical variables affect the mechanics of a hip resurfacing system. Recent clinical studies have linked failure to surgical variables of stemmed hip resurfacing systems. We used finite element analysis to investigate the effects of implant position, stem orientation, and extent of fixation both on the local stresses and strains associated with implant loosening, neck fracture, and stem fracture, as well as on the load transfer distribution in the bone-implant system.

One computer simulation suggested the range of hip motion might be considerably less with resurfacing compared with conventional hip arthroplasty. There are a very limited number of patients for whom hip resurfacing is truly indicated, and the femoral head may be unsuitable for resurfacing in 40% of selected patients.

Using direct measurements of external bone dimensions and geometric properties, we estimated the fall-induced stress as an index of hip fragility.Within approximately 1000 years, the femoral axis length has become substantially longer (analysis of covariance, body height adjusted, p < 0.001), whereas the neck circumference has not increased. The macroanatomy was found similar between the contemporary adult and elderly groups. In hip fracture cases, however, the femoral axis length was further (...) Fragile external phenotype of modern human proximal femur in comparison with medieval bone. Proximal femur macroanatomy of 118 medieval and 67 contemporary adults, 84 contemporary elderly, and 48 contemporary hip fracture cases was evaluated. Within approximately 1000 years, the femoral neck axis has become longer, and its cross-section has become proportionally smaller and more oval in shape. These changes in the present external phenotype alone account for approximately 50% higher fall
