A retrospective radiological review of all femoral fractures between January 1, 2006 and March 31, 2015 in Quebec City, Canada was conducted to assess the prevalence and clinical and radiological risk factors related to atypical periprosthetic femoral fractures (APFFs)
By conducting a retrospective cohort study of all patients with vertebral fractures in the American College of Surgeons National Trauma Data Bank Research Data Set from years 2011 and 2012, researchers investigated the rate of venous thromboembolism
In this study, a midshaft forearm fracture pattern that places the ulnar nerve at risk in the pediatric population was described. In addition, the injury pattern and treatment methods were described through analysis of 7 pediatric patients (5 male and 2 female) with
Researchers from Australia set out to highlight how long the increased risk of dying exists from low trauma fractures—other than hip fractures.Their study, “Persistence of excess mortality following individual non-hip fractures: A relative survival analysis,” appears in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
Incidence, risk factors, and fracture healing of atypical femoral fractures: A multicenter case-control study
Authors ascertained the incidence and risk factors of atypical femoral fractures (AFFs) by performing a multicenter case-control study. They also gauged the impacts of bisphosphonates (BPs) on AFF healing
