Risk of fractures and subsequent mortality in alcohol-related cirrhosis: A nationwide population-based cohort study

Background and aimsAlcohol-related cirrhosis is linked to increased risk of fractures, but this has seldom been quantified nationally or compared against non-cirrhotic controls. Here, we determined the rate and risk of fractures and post-fracture mortality in patients with alcohol-related cirrhosis compared to individuals from the general population.MethodsIn this nationwide population-based cohort study, data were retrieved …

#Height Loss in Old Age and #Fracture Risk Among Men in Late Life: A Prospective Cohort Study

To assess the association of height loss in old age with subsequent risk of hip and any clinical fracture in men late in life while accounting for the competing risk of mortality, we used data from 3,491 community‐dwelling men (mean age 79.2 years). Height loss between baseline and follow‐up (mean 7.0 years between examinations) was …

Association of Potent and Very Potent Topical #Corticosteroids and the Risk of #Osteoporosis and Major Osteoporotic Fractures

Systemic and inhaled corticosteroids negatively affect bone remodeling and cause osteoporosis and bone fracture when given continuously or in high doses. However, risk of osteoporosis and major osteoporotic fracture (MOF) after application of topical corticosteroids (TCSs) is largely unexplored.. ..A total of 723 251 adults treated with the equivalent of at least 200 g of mometasone …
