  1. 1. Risk factors for bone fragility and fracture in postmenopausal women

    Author : Ola Svejme; Ortopedi - klinisk och molekylär osteoporosforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bone Fragility; Fracture; Osteoporosis; Bone Mineral Density BMD ; Menopause; Physical activity; Bone Strength; Bone Size; Bone Densitometry;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to evaluate risk factors for bone fragility and fractures in postmenopausal women in a long-term perspective. The study period spanned from the age of 48 to age 82 and is thus unique in its length. The studied sample was homogeneous and consisted of 390 north European women from a population-based cohort.

  2. 2. Physical activity, bone gain and sustainment of peak bone mass

    Author : Taru Tervo; Anna Nordström; Peter Nordström; Jon Karlsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : BMD; physical activity; men; athletes; trabecular bone; cortical bone; self-perceived health; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Weak and osteoporotic bones are an increasing cause of mortality and painful physical impairment among the elderly, especially in the Western world. Bone mineral density (BMD, g/cm2) accrual during childhood and adolescence is thought to influence an individual’s risk of osteoporosis and the related fractures. READ MORE

    Abstract : Introduction: Thanks to achievements in paediatric heart surgery and medicine, the population of adults with surgically repaired or palliated congenital heart defects is growing. Many of these adults have reduced exercise capacity, weaker muscular strength and shorter height, all of which suggest an altered body composition. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bone density, bone geometry and bone development in young men - the importance of pubertal timing and fracture history

    Author : Anna Darelid; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : peak bone mass; bone mineral density; bone development; fracture; young adulthood; men;

    Abstract : Background and objective: Peak bone mass, the maximal bone mass attained in young adulthood, is an important factor of the lifetime risk of developing osteoporosis. The aim of this thesis was to study the development of bone mineral density (BMD) and bone geometry around the time of peak bone mass in men, and also to investigate the association between pubertal timing, fracture history, bone turnover markers and BMD and bone geometry in young men.

  5. 5. Exercise in Youth and Long-Term Effects on Bone and Joints

    Author : Magnus Tveit; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; arthroplasty; BMD; bone mass; bone geometry; bone size; exercise; former athletes; fracture; fragility fracture; knee injury; osteoarthritis; osteoporosis; hip injury; runners; soccer; total joint replacement;

    Abstract : Partly due to an ageing population, the number of osteoporosis-related fractures and osteoarthritis (OA)-related hip and knee arthroplasty procedures is increasing. The individual suffering and the burden on society for these conditions is immense. READ MORE
