  1. 1. Epidemiology of Physical Activity and Fragility Fractures

    Author : Karl Stattin; Liisa Byberg; Jonas Björk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; physical activity; fracture; fragility fracture; epidemiology; cohort study; proteomic; walking; exercise; cross-country skiing; skiing; Vasaloppet.; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Fragility fractures mainly affect elderly individuals and often cause long term pain, loss of function and higher mortality rates. Physical activity improves balance, increases muscle strength and bone mineral density, and may reduce the risk of fragility fractures. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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.

  3. 3. Hip fracture - Mortality and residual lifetime risk of fractures

    Author : My von Friesendorff; Ortopedi - klinisk och molekylär osteoporosforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hip fracture; women; men; sex; age; survival; mortality; subsequent fracture; fracture risk; residual lifetime; cause of death; long term;

    Abstract : Hip fracture is the most severe clinical manifestation of bone fragility. Hip fracture predominantly affects an already frail population and is associated with multi-cause morbidity and high mortality. Improved knowledge of long-term outcome is essential in order to improve future care and prevention of both fracture and its complications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fragility fractures in fragile people : epidemiology of the age quake

    Author : Ulrica Bergström; Håkan Jonsson; Ulrika Pettersson; Hans Stenlund; Karl Obrant; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fragility; fractures; elderly; epidemiology; age quake; population based; Vitamin D.; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Osteoporosis-related fracture is already today a major public health problem and the number of hip fractures is expected to double to 2030. Sweden has one of the highest hip fracture incidences worldwide. This may be explained by several factors: e.g. READ MORE

  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
