Methods: In this cross sectional study postmenopausal females between 50-70 years of age were recruited and divided into three groups: non-osteoporotic
(n=52), osteopenic (n=69) and osteoporotic
Commenting on the findings, women's health expert Dr Catherine Hood, from the Tea Advisory Panel, says: "Compared with the lowest tea intake category (one or fewer cups of tea each week), consumption of three or more cups of tea each day was associated with a statistically significant 30% decrease in the risk of any osteoporotic
4 years of follow-up, the incidence of any osteoporotic
fracture was nonsignificantly lower by 14% and the incidence of hip fracture was nonsignificantly lower by 6% in the vitamin group than in the placebo group.
Methods: A total of 140 patients with spinal osteoporotic
fracture were selected and randomly divided into a treatment group and a control group (n=70).
Total 50 subjects were initially registered and on basis of BMD, 31 and 19 were diagnosed as osteoporotic
low bone quality and therefore loosening of implant, and risk of long invasive procedures) all other treatments did not succeed sufficiently.
5 or greater at the lumbar spine or femoral neck, or a prior major osteoporotic
fracture along with a T score of -2.
The men's average age was 65 years, 94% were white, and one-quarter had a history of a major osteoporotic
The FRAX tool was used to calculate 10-year fracture risk probabilities, and the actual incidence of major osteoporotic
or hip fractures was determined through 2008.
When a correlation analysis was performed on all osteoporotic
patients, a negative correlation was detected between balance stability indices and knee flexion-extension strength at 60[degrees]/sec and knee flexion strength at 300[degrees]/sec.
Materials and Methods: Eighteen recently diagnosed postmenopausal osteoporotic
women without any fractures participated in this study.
vertebral fractures are common, affecting about one in four people.
Think twice before recommending vertebroplasty (VP) for symptomatic osteoporotic
The World Health Organization (WHO) has finally released the FRAX risk-assessment tool, which enables clinicians to calculate a woman's 10-year risk of developing a hip fracture or any major osteoporotic
Patients with newly diagnosed diabetes had an 11% lower risk of osteoporotic
fracture and an 18% lower risk of hip fracture, compared with controls, in a retrospective study of 82,094 diabetic patients and 236,682 control subjects.
