26. Association Between Alendronate Use and Hip Fracture Risk in Older Patients Using Oral Prednisolone.

Association Between Alendronate Use and Hip Fracture Risk in Older Patients Using Oral Prednisolone. Importance: Oral glucocorticoid treatment increases fracture risk, and evidence is lacking regarding the efficacy of alendronate to protect against hip fracture in older patients using glucocorticoids. Objective: To investigate whether alendronate treatment in older patients using oral prednisolone is associated with decreased hip fracture risk and adverse effects. Design, Setting (...) between January 2008 and December 2014. Exposures: Alendronate vs no alendronate use; no patients had previously taken alendronate at the time of prednisolone initiation. Main Outcomes and Measures: The primary outcome was incident hip fracture. Results: Of the 3604 included patients, the mean age was 79.9 (SD, 7.5) years, and 2524 (70%) were women. After a median follow-up of 1.32 years (interquartile range, 0.57-2.34 years), there were 27 hip fractures in the alendronate group and 73

28. Fracture fixation in the operative management of hip fractures (FAITH): an international, multicentre, randomised controlled trial.

Fracture fixation in the operative management of hip fractures (FAITH): an international, multicentre, randomised controlled trial. BACKGROUND: Reoperation rates are high after surgery for hip fractures. We investigated the effect of a sliding hip screw versus cancellous screws on the risk of reoperation and other key outcomes. METHODS: For this international, multicentre, allocation concealed randomised controlled trial, we enrolled patients aged 50 years or older with a low-energy hip (...) fracture requiring fracture fixation from 81 clinical centres in eight countries. Patients were assigned by minimisation with a centralised computer system to receive a single large-diameter screw with a side-plate (sliding hip screw) or the present standard of care, multiple small-diameter cancellous screws. Surgeons and patients were not blinded but the data analyst, while doing the analyses, remained blinded to treatment groups. The primary outcome was hip reoperation within 24 months after initial

30. Relation between age, femoral neck cortical stability, and hip fracture risk.

Relation between age, femoral neck cortical stability, and hip fracture risk. BACKGROUND: Hip fracture risk rises 100 to 1000-fold over 60 years of ageing. Loss of resistance to bending is not a major feature of normal ageing of the femoral neck. Another cause of fragility is local buckling or elastic instability. Bones adapt to their local experience of mechanical loading. The suggestion that bipedalism allows thinning of the underloaded superolateral femoral neck cortex arises from (...) the failure of walking to transmit much mechanical load to this region. We aimed to measure whether elastic instability increases greatly with age since it might trigger hip fracture in a sideways fall. METHODS: We measured with computed tomography the distribution of bone in the mid-femoral neck of 77 proximal femurs from people who died suddenly aged 20-95 years. We then calculated the critical stress, from the geometric properties and density of the cortical zone most highly loaded in a sideways fall
