Cátedra de EDUCACIÓN MÉDICA Fundación Lilly-UCM Estimado/a  amigo/a: Además de invitarle a participar en la VII Edición de los Premios de EDUCACIÓN MÉDICA 2014, patrocinados por la Cátedra de EDUCACIÓN MÉDICA Fundación Lilly-UCM, le adjunto una carta del Director de la Cátedra, así como un cartel anunciador con las BASES de la convocatoria al que […]

J Bone Miner Res. 2014 Nov;29(11):2357-68. doi: 10.1002/jbmr.2267. As in humans, FD lesions in mice developed only in the postnatal life; a defined spatial and temporal pattern characterized the onset and progression of lesions across the skeleton. In individual bones, lesions developed through a sequence of three distinct histopathological stages: a primary modeling phase defined […]

J Bone Miner Res. 2014 Nov;29(11):2307-22. doi: 10.1002/jbmr.2373. Review studies of bone regeneration in genetically modified mouse models, during aging, following environmental exposure, and in the setting of disease that provide insights regarding the role of multipotent cells and their regulation during fracture repair. Complementary animal models and ongoing scientific discoveries define an increasing number […]

Bone 67; 246–256. doi: 10.1016/j.bone.2014.07.014. Epub 2014 Jul 15 Studies using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry and quantitative computed tomography for longitudinal assessment of changes at the hip have consistently shown increases in areal and volumetric bone mineral density, cortical thickness, and finite element-estimated hip strength in patients treated with teriparatide. Finally, in clinical fracture-outcome trials, treatment […]

Early surgical fixation, the role of anti-thromboembolic and anti-infective prophylaxis, good pain control at the perioperative, detection and management of delirium, correct urinary tract management, avoidance of malnutrition, vitamin D supplementation, osteoporosis treatment and advancement of early mobilization to improve functional recovery and falls prevention are basic recommendations for an optimal maintenance of hip fractured […]

Osteoporosis and fragility fracture have been diagnosed, although rarely. The condition, however, is transitory because there is no long-term data supporting the deleterious effect of pregnancy on bone mass or fracture risk. Prevention is limited by the lack of identifiable risk factors. When fractures are diagnosed, rest, analgesics, or when indicated, orthopedic intervention, have demonstrated […]

Patients with recurrent calcium nephrolithiasis and fasting hypercalciuria have a higher incidence of osteopenia and osteoporosis. They present increased BTMs (mainly resorptive) and up to 30% have hypocitraturia and increased urinary calcium/citrate ratio (>0.25). Medical therapy is aimed at improving the dietary habits, prescribing combinations of potassium citrate, thiazides, and bisphosphonates, and correcting bone and […]
