PURPOSE: The Mediterranean diet is associated with decreased morbidity and mortality from various chronic diseases. Adherence to a Mediterranean-style diet has been suggested to have protective effects on bone health and decreases the incidence of bone fractures, but the evidence is not clear. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of available observational studies to quantify the association between adherence to a Mediterranean-style diet, as assessed by the Mediterranean Diet Score (MDS), and the risk of fractures in the general population...

The risk of neuraxial block in patients treated with antiplatelet drugs are uncertain. Elderly patients often have low physiological reserve, delaying surgery can lead to a high rate of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this paper is to present a case of a patient with 99 years using clopidogrel undergoing regional anesthesia for surgical treatment of hip fracture without complications.

Failing primary clinical investigation is common in missed hip fractures Diagnostic errors in 43 patients with hip fracture handled by the Swedish Health and Social Care Inspectorate were analyzed. Diagnostic errors were most likely a consequence of insufficient initial history, examination and/or radiologic examination. The most common isolated cause was delayed examination by a physician outside of a hospital setting. A substantial number of diagnostic errors were related to the radiological examination itself...

Background and purpose - Hemiarthroplasty is the most common treatment in elderly patients with displaced femoral neck fracture. Prosthetic joint infection (PJI) is a feared complication. The infection rate varies in the literature, and there are limited descriptive data available. We investigated the characteristics and outcome of PJI following hemiarthroplasty over a 15-year period. Patients and methods - Patients with PJI were identified among 519 patients treated with hemiarthroplasty for a femoral neck fracture at Oslo University Hospital between 1998 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: A fracture neck of femur is the leading cause of injury-related mortality in the elderly population. The 30-day mortality figure is a well utilised marker of clinical outcome following a fracture neck of femur. Current studies fail to analyse all patient demographic, biochemical and comorbid parameters associated with increased 30-day mortality. We aimed to assess medical risk factors for mortality, which are easily identifiable on admission for patients presenting with a fractured neck of femur...

REVIEW
Claus Varnum
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a common and successful treatment of patients suffering from severe osteoarthritis that significantly reduces pain and improves hip function and quality of life. Traditionally, the outcome of THA has been evaluated by orthopaedic surgeons and assessed in morbidity and mortality rates, and implant survival. As patients and surgeons may assess outcome after THA differently, patient-reported outcomes (PROMs) have gained much more interest and are today recognized as very important tools for evaluating the outcome and satisfaction after THA...

BACKGROUND: Centenarians are the fastest rising age group in Ireland. Hip fractures most commonly affect older adults and are associated with significant morbidity and mortality, as well as the financial cost of healthcare resources. Despite this, very little is known regarding hip fractures in centenarians. The aim of this study was to investigate our experience with hip fractures in this group and to record the cost of treating these fractures to identify both the social and economic impact these injuries impose on the health system...

REVIEW
Jacqueline R Center
PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: This review aims to highlight important clinical findings from the over 25 year-long Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study particularly focusing on outcomes post fracture. RECENT FINDINGS: Every low trauma fracture in the elderly is associated with an increased risk of a subsequent fracture, with a higher risk in men than women. All major or proximal fractures and even minor fractures in the very elderly or minor fractures that are then followed by re-fracture are associated with premature mortality, greatest in the first 5 years post fracture...

Data on long-term consequences of non-hip non-vertebral (NHNV) fractures, accounting for approximately two thirds of all fragility fractures are scanty. Our study aimed to quantify the population-wide impact of NHNV fractures on mortality. The national population-based prospective cohort study (Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study) included 5526 community dwelling women and 2163 men aged 50 years or older followed up from July 1995 to September 2013. Population impact number was used to quantify the average number of people for whom one death would be attributable to fracture and case impact number to quantify the number of deaths out of which one would be attributable to a fracture...

Hip fractures are a common emergency among the geriatric population and often requires immediate hospitalization for proper assessment. More than 90% of the time, hip fractures are suffered by individuals older than 65 and are usually precipitated predominantly by falls. Current studies show that the average individual over 65 years falls at least once a year, and roughly 1 out of every 4 of these individuals succumb to their injuries just 12 months following surgical treatment. Moreover, timely treatment and management of these hip fractures have shown to decrease mortality by reducing cardiopulmonary and venous thromboembolic complications that often accompany hip surgeries...

INTRODUCTION: To identify the success of pain catheters in the management of pain in nonoperatively treated femoral neck fractures (FNFs) in supplement to current multimodal protocols for end-of-life pain management. METHODS: Twenty patients aged older than 50 years with FNFs were selected in a retrospective fashion at a level 1 trauma center. These patients were treated nonoperatively with indwelling continuous peripheral pain catheters to palliate pain. Adjunctive pain control for patients undergoing nonoperative management of FNFs was provided with an indwelling continuous intra-articular/peripheral nerve ropivacaine pain catheters...
