BACKGROUND: As a consequence of demographic changes, hospitals are confronted with increasing numbers of elderly patients, who are at high risk of adverse events during hospitalization. Geriatric risk screening followed by comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) and treatment has been requested by geriatric societies and task forces to identify patients at risk. Since empirical evidence on factors predisposing to adverse hospital events is scarce, we now prospectively evaluated implications of geriatric risk screening followed by CGA in a university hospital department of orthopedics and trauma surgery...

BACKGROUND: Over the last decade, the percentage of people >65 years has increased from 16.6% to 20.7%. In industrialized countries, the annual incidence in people >65 years with a proximal femur fracture is about 600-900 per 100,000 population. The incidence will increase by 3-5% per year. Guidelines advocate early surgery as soon as possible but within 24 h. External quality control requires surgical treatment within 48 h. In this study, the changes in the patient population with proximal femur fractures and their treatment during the last decade were investigated...

BACKGROUND: The Japanese Orthopedic Association first proposed the concept of "locomotive syndrome" in 2007. It refers to circumstances in which elderly people need nursing care services or are at high risk of requiring such services within a short time. Recently, the public health burden of providing nursing care for elderly individuals has increased. Therefore, locomotive syndrome, and the means of preventing it, are a major public health focus in Japan. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships of lifestyle factors, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, sleep duration, and dental health, with locomotive syndrome...

BACKGROUND: More and more older patients receive the surgery after hip fracture. However, the mortality rate is high. Prognostic nutritional index (PNI) is associated with prognosis in hip fracture patients. In the current study, we proposed a novel prognostic score, named c-reactive protein/PNI ratio (CRP/PNI ratio), for predicting the prognosis for geriatric orthopedic population. METHODS: This is a prospective study. Eighty cases of hip fracture surgery in the elderly population were studied to reveal the relationship between the CRP/PNI ratio and the clinicopathological characteristics of the elderly patients...

BACKGROUND: Step-up ability is considered to be associated with lower limb dysfunction. The objective of this research was to assess the height of the tallest step that could be mounted and to investigate its association with lower limb dysfunction. METHODS: We previously conducted a two-year follow-up prospective cohort study. The study subjects were 119 patients receiving physiotherapy or exercise therapy at an orthopedic surgery clinic. The items evaluated were step-up ability (maximum step height), the timed up and go test, one-leg standing time and the 5-question Geriatric Locomotive Function Scale...

OBJECTIVES: There are limited screening tools to predict adverse postoperative outcomes for the geriatric surgical fracture population. Frailty is increasingly recognized as a risk assessment to capture complexity. The goal of this study was to use a short screening tool, the FRAIL scale, to categorize the level of frailty of older adults admitted with a fracture to determine the association of each frailty category with postoperative and 30-day outcomes. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Ageing is associated with a decline of motor function and ability to perform daily activities. Locomotive disorders are one of the major disorders resulting in adverse health condition in elderly people. Concept of Locomotive syndrome (LoS) was proposed to tackle the problems and prolong healthy life expectancy of people with locomotive disorders. To develop intervention strategy for LoS it is mandatory to investigate impairments, functional disabilities which people with locomotive disorder experience and to examine relationships among these parameters...

OBJECTIVE: To explore hospital-level variation in postoperative delirium using a multi-institutional data source. BACKGROUND: Postoperative delirium is closely related to serious morbidity, disability, and death in older adults. Yet, surgeons and hospitals rarely measure delirium rates, which limits quality improvement efforts. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) Geriatric Surgery Pilot (2014 to 2015) collects geriatric-specific variables, including postoperative delirium using a standardized definition...

Spinal anesthesia for spine surgery is an emerging technique. Because of their lack of physiologic reserve, elderly patients are an appealing population for this technique. Unfortunately, the safe limits of spine surgery using spinal anesthesia for the geriatric population are not well defined. The authors describe an elderly patient with severe spine degeneration who elected for a 5-level lumbar spine fusion with spinal anesthesia. Adequate anesthesia was maintained throughout the procedure, which lasted 3 hours and 24 minutes...

CONTEXT: Fragmentation in geriatric hip fracture care is a growing concern because of the aging population. Patients with hip fractures at our institution historically were admitted to multiple different services and units, leading to unnecessary variation in inpatient care. Such inconsistency contributed to delays in surgery, discharge, and functional recovery; hospital-acquired complications; failure to adhere to best practices in osteoporosis management; and poor coordination with outpatient practitioners...
