Aging is the result of different functional changes leading to a substantial reduction of all human capabilities. A variety of anatomical and physiological changes occur with advancing age. These changes are more evident in the elderly population. There are various methods to measure muscle and bone mass loss, but the dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is considered one of the most efficient. The elderly population (65 years and older) has been increasing throughout the years. Loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) and loss bone mass (osteopenia or osteoporosis) with advancing age, when untreated, represent a major public health problem for the elderly population and may result in loss of independence in later life...

BACKGROUND: Osteoporosis and related fragility fractures are a global public health problem in which pharmaceutical agents targeting bone mineral density (BMD) are the first line of treatment. However, pharmaceuticals have no effect on improving other key fracture risk factors, including low muscle strength, power and functional capacity, all of which are associated with an increased risk for falls and fracture, independent of BMD. Targeted exercise training is the only strategy that can simultaneously improve multiple skeletal and fall-related risk factors, but it must be appropriately prescribed and tailored to the desired outcome(s) and the specified target group...

Osteosarcopenia is a phenotype resulting from the combination of sarcopenia and low bone mineral density. Based on the relationship between bone and muscle, this phenotype is associated with a higher risk of falls, fractures, dependence, and health care costs than its individual components. Given its characteristics, it can be considered as a new geriatric syndrome. Therefore, understanding its pathophysiology and diagnosis, as well as its non-pharmacological and pharmacological management is a task of great importance...

RATIONALE: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative multisystem disorder, presenting with limb or bulbar onset. To date, there is no cure for ALS. At some stage of the disease, patients may complain of breathlessness due to respiratory failure, thus needing a noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIMV) support. However, breathlessness is a symptom that may be induced by different causes that must be taken into consideration in ALS management. PATIENTS CONCERNS: We report the case of an 81-year-old man, with a spinal onset ALS, who was admitted to our clinic to start NIMV because of respiratory involvement...

The bilateral shoulder pain of an 81-year-old Japanese woman due to falls persisted despite celecoxib treatment, and plain X-rays later showed bilateral collapsed humeral heads. After ruling out osteoarthritis, infectious arthritis, crystal-induced arthritis, neuropathic arthropathy, and osteonecrosis, we diagnosed bilateral shoulder joint rapidly destructive arthrosis (RDA). Lumbar bone mineral density showed very low T-score (-4.1). Primary osteoporosis was observed. Histology of biopsied humeral head indicated the features of fracture healing process: callus formation and osteoclasts without empty lacunae...

Vitamin D is essential for the maintenance of calcium and phosphorus homeostasis, skeletal growth and various other metabolic processes. The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency in India is 50-90% in various studies. Factors such as low sunlight exposure, age-related decrease in cutaneous synthesis, and low dietary intake of vitamin D contribute to the high prevalence of vitamin D inadequacy which has emerged as a highly pervasive condition. Bone diseases such as rickets in children, osteomalacia and osteoporosis in adults are related with vitamin D insufficiency...

Osteoporosis is a common complication of androgen deprivation therapy (ADT). In this large Swedish cohort study consisting of a total of nearly 180,000 older men, we found that those with prostate cancer and ADT have a significantly increased risk of future osteoporotic fractures. INTRODUCTION: Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in patients with prostate cancer is associated to increased risk of fractures. In this study, we investigated the relationship between ADT in patients with prostate cancer and the risk of incident fractures and non-skeletal fall injuries both compared to those without ADT and compared to patients without prostate cancer...

BACKGROUND: Several guidelines recommend a bone and fall-related osteoporosis risk assessment in all patients with fracture and age > 50 years. In practice, however, there is no consensus whether screening > 85 years is useful. AIM: To evaluate the subsequent fracture risk in all patient > 85 years, comparing the two populations of Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) attenders and non-attenders. METHODS: All patients > 85 years that presented at the FLS with a non-vertebral fracture were included in the study during a 5-year period (September 2004 and December 2009)...

BACKGROUND: Frailty is associated with poor outcomes hence identification of risks factors is pivotal. Since the independent role of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in frailty remains unexplored, we aimed to determine this in a population of older individuals with a history of falling. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Falls and Fracture Clinic, Nepean Hospital (Penrith, Australia). PARTICIPANTS: 692 subjects (mean age=79, 65% women) assessed between 2009-2015...

Osteoporosis is a global pandemic affecting children, men and women of all ages and ethnicities. Millions of people suffer fragility fractures each year around the world as a result of this bone disease, which can have devastating consequences for them, including permanent disability and death. Many fractures are preventable by identifying people at high risk for fracture and falls, and diagnosing those who already have osteoporosis, before they fracture. Rheumatologists commonly encounter people with fragile bones, either as an isolated entity, or a co-morbidity to their underlying rheumatic illness or treatment...

Androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) in patients with prostate cancer can be achieved surgically or chemically, notably by prescribing LHRH analogs. Major bone loss occurs rapidly in both cases, due to the decrease in testosterone levels, and can increase the fracture risk. The objective of developing these recommendations was to achieve a practical consensus among various scientific societies, based on a literature review, about osteoporosis prevention and treatment in patients on ADT. The following scientific societies contributed to the work: Société Française de Rhumatologie (SFR), Groupe de Recherche et d'Information sur les Ostéoporoses (GRIO), Groupe Européen d'Etudes des Métastases Osseuses (GEMO), Association Francophone pour les SOins de Support (AFSOS), Association Française d'Urologie (AFU), Société Française de Radiothérapie Oncologique (SFRO)...

Fractures are major cause of morbidity, mortality, and healthcare and social services expenditure in elderly. Fractures often have multifactorial etiologies and the condition emerges due to the interaction between the different predisposing and precipitating factors. One of the most common causes leading to fractures after minimal trauma in older people is osteoporosis. The objective of this article is to describe the clinical concept and summarize the evidence and to explain the future directions for research, focusing on specific issues related to prevent fracture in the elderly...
