Effectiveness of community-based rehabilitation interventions incorporating outdoor mobility on ambulatory ability and falls-related self-efficacy after hip fracture: a systematic review and meta-analysis
ConclusionIt was not possible to attribute any benefit observed to an outdoor mobility intervention component due to poor reporting of target or achieved outdoor mobility and/or quality of the underlying evidence. Given the low proportion of patients recovering outdoor mobility after hip fracture, future research on interventions with outdoor mobility as a central component is warranted.Trial registrationPROSPERO registration: CRD42021236541 (Source: Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery)

The relationship between serum folate and grip strength in American adults
ConclusionOur study suggested a positive association between serum folate and grip strength, while this positive association was only found in females; besides, the dose –response relationships were in a non-linear trend.

Bone mineral density in spanish children at the diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease
ConclusionsSuboptimal bone density is present at diagnosis in Spanish pediatric patients with IBD. There is no difference in BMD between patients with CD and UC. Lower weight and height are associated with a lower BMD; thus these data at IBD diagnosis should be considered as a risk factor for bone disease in the pediatric population.

Comparison of human bone mineral densities in subjects on plant-based and omnivorous diets: a systematic review and meta-analysis
AbstractBackgroundThe increased consumption of plant-based diets has encouraged studies of bone mineral density (BMD). The present systematic review and meta-analysis compared the effects of plant-based and omnivorous diets on BMD.MethodsWe searched the Cochrane Library, PubMed, EMBASE, and the Web of Science to July 1, 2020. We used the mean differences (MDs) with 95% CIs to compare group outcomes. We compared the lumbar spine, femoral neck, and whole-body BMDs of those on plant-based and omnivorous diets. We performed subgroup analyses by various clinical characteristics. Two reviewers independently assessed trial qualit...

Relationship between physical activity, lean body mass, and bone mass in the Mexican adult population
ConclusionOur findings demonstrate that some types of LTPA with relatively high/medium impact on bones, such as football, basketball, tennis, and weightlifting, improve both BMC and LM compared to sedentary individuals. Finally, this relationship is stronger for the bones found in the legs and it seems that women are less sensitive to this effect, possibly due to hormonal, dietary, and pharmacological reasons.

Bisphosphonate treatment and the risk of atypical femoral fracture among patients participating in a Fracture Liaison Service of a tertiary medical center
AbstractSummaryBisphosphonates are common treatment for osteoporosis. Among patients admitted with hip fracture, atypical femoral fractures (AFF) were more prevalent in those who were treated with Bisphosphonates for five or more years. Five years of Bisphosphonates treatment may signify an increased risk for AFF, though the absolute risk remains very low.PurposeAtypical femoral fractures (AFF) are a rare complication of bisphosphonate (BP) treatment. We evaluated the correlation between BP exposure and AFF risk among hip fracture patients.MethodsThis retrospective nested case –control study included patients over ag...

Development of prediction model for osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture screening without using clinical risk factors, compared with FRAX and other previous models
This study developed a prediction model to assess the need for asymptomatic osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF) screening in women without using clinical risk factors. Our results demonstrated that the combination of age, height loss, and femoral neck T-score can predict OVCF comparable to previous models, including FRAX.PurposeOsteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF) is a major fracture in osteoporosis patients. Early detection of OVCF can reduce the risk of subsequent fractures and death. Many existing diagnostic tools can screen for the risk of osteoporotic fracture but none aim to identify OVCF...

Endurance running prevents the age-related decline of calcaneal bone stiffness
AbstractSummaryThis investigation presents a comparison of calcaneus bone stiffness of endurance runners of different ages and age-matched controls. We found that there was an age-associated decline in calcaneus bone stiffness in the control group while endurance runners prevented this decline, with a higher effect as the participants increased their age.PurposePrevious investigations have found that endurance runners have higher bone mineral density and other bone quality variables in mechanically loaded bones. However, it is unknown if endurance running might counteract the decline in bone stiffness that occurs with age....

ADHD, stimulant medication use, and the risk of fracture: a systematic review and meta-analysis
AbstractSummaryWe performed a meta-analysis to quantify the relationships among a diagnosis of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the use of stimulant medication, and the risk of fracture. There was a significant positive association between ADHD and the risk of fracture. However, stimulant ADHD medication therapy appears to be associated with a reduced risk of fracture in patients with ADHD.IntroductionADHD is associated with an increased fracture risk due to a lack of impulse control. ADHD medication may have a protective effect via behavior modification. However, previous research found an adverse effect o...

Compared to daily subcutaneous TPD, cyclic therapy showed comparable increase in spine BMD and favorable effects on total proximal femur BMD and cortical thickness.PurposeThere is no cure for osteoporosis; better medications or different approaches with current agents are needed. We hypothesized that monthly cycles of teriparatide (TPD) followed by raloxifene (RLX) might promote ongoing bone formation. Additionally, as TPD might initially adv...
