IJERPH, Vol. 17, Pages 2449: The Innovative and Sustainable Use of Dental Panoramic Radiographs for the Detection of Osteoporosis International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph17072449 Authors: Andy Wai Kan Yeung Ioana Mozos This bibliometric study evaluated the scientific impact of papers dealing with osteoporosis detected by dental panoramic radiographs by performing citation analysis and cited reference analysis. Retrospective data was extracted from the Web of Science Core Collection database and imported into VOSviewer, CRExplorer, and CitNetExplorer for analyzing semantic contents, cited references, and temporal citation network. The 280 relevant papers identified were cited 4874 times, having an h-index of 38 and 17.4 citations per paper. The top five major contributing countries were Japan (n = 54, 19.3%), USA (n = 43, 15.4%), Brazil (n = 38, 13.6%), Turkey (n = 38, 13.6%), and the UK (n = 32, 11.4%). Citation per paper correlated with publication count among the authors and institutions. Mandibular cortical width was the most frequently used and most cited measurement index. References published during the 1970s and 1980s have built the foundation for the development of research that investigates the potential associations between osteoporosis and radiographic measurements on panoramic radiographs. Osteoporosis detection by dental panoramic radiographs is a perennially investigated research topic with global contributi...

Authors: Wautier D, Ftaïta S, Thienpont E Abstract Aseptic loosening of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) components is one of the frequent reasons for early revision together with infection and instability. Aseptic loosening is usually preceded by the observation of radiolucent lines (RLL) on radiographs. Radiolucent lines have conventionally been considered a sign of osteolysis due to particles disease of either polyethylene or cement wear. However, RLL can be observed quite early after TKA, way before wear and osteolysis can even occur. Immediate postoperative RLL are secondary to surgical technique with either...

This article aims to evaluate the outcomes of restoring the body height of the compressed thoracic vertebrae in patients undergoing BKP. Methods: We prospectively enrolled 65 consecutive patients with thoracic VCFs (73 vertebrae) due to osteoporosis who were treated with BKP between June 2018 and May 2019. Results: A trocar was inserted through the pedicle in 84.9% (62/73) and beside the pedicle in 15.1% (11/73). The mean amount of mixed cement injected was 4.1 ± 1.1 mL (range, 1.5-7 mL). Cement leakage was radiographically confirmed in 30.8% of 65 patients. Among patients with complications caused by cement...

ConclusionCurrent guideline-recommended FRAX thresholds without BMD showed low sensitivity. Therefore, 10-year osteoporotic hip fracture probability  ≥ 0.95% and 10-year osteoporotic major fracture probability ≥ 4.95% are recommended as the new thresholds.

Conclusion: PMI is a reliable indicator for determining BMD but is not much influenced by gender variation.

ConclusionsRadiographic vertebral fractures were common among Thai postmenopausal women (~ 29%). These findings suggest that approximately one in three postmenopausal women has undiagnosed vertebral fracture. Radiographic diagnosis should therefore be an essential investigation for identifying and confirming the presence of vertebral fractures.

Conclusions: Open reduction of displaced femoral neck fractures in nonelderly adults is associated with a greater hazard of reoperation without significantly improving reduction. Prospective randomized trials are indicated to confirm a causative effect of open versus closed reduction on outcomes after femoral neck fracture. Level of Evidence: Therapeutic Level III. See Instructions for Authors for a complete description of levels of evidence.

Conclusion. Age>70 years, osteoporosis, and PJA greater 0° were identified as significant risk factors for PJF. Therefore, the TLJ level can be considered as UIV selectively for patients younger than 70 years without osteoporosis and with lordotic preoperative PJA. Level of Evidence: 3

In this study, we compared the treatment outcomes of pins and plaster with locking plates in elderly patients over 65 yr of age. Methods: In this prospective study, 204 elderly patients with distal radial fractures were examined from 2014 to 2018. Among these patients, only 94 had comminuted fractures and required surgery. The remaining 110 patients were excluded from the study. Among the 94 patients with comminuted distal fractures, 46 were treated with pins and plaster while 48 received open reduction and fixation with a locking plate. The patients were followed for 1 yr. Functional performance and quali...

This study demonstrates the correlation between ECM mechanical property and cell-to-cell communication in osteocytes and might pave the way for further exploration of osteoporosis in terms of biomechanics. PMID: 32286624 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

A 44-year-old woman with a history of hypertension and partial gastrectomy presented to the emergency department with low thoracic back pain of 2  days' duration without red flag symptoms. The physical examination was significant for point tenderness to palpation in the lower thoracic spine without overlying skin changes or neurologic symptoms. Considering her large body habitus and history of gastrectomy, a thoracic radiograph was obtained to rule out compression fracture due to osteoporosis (Figure 1).
