The 1-year cardiovascular mortality hazard ratio (HR) for alendronate users was 0.33 (95% CI, 0.17 to 0.65) and 0.55 for incident myocardial infarction (95% CI, 0.34 to 0.89).
Findings do not support a role for subclinical thyroid dysfunction as a biomarker for bone-related outcomes in older men.
Researchers showed that improved glycemic control is associated with higher bone resorption, possibly reflecting normalization rather than an abnormal increase in bone resorption.
A high stress fracture rate in oligo-amenorrheic athletes, who have whole body, less head and hip, areal bone mineral density (BMD) measures comparable to those of control patients, indicates that BMD in these women may need to be even higher to avoid fractures.
Researchers found that estimation of hip fracture risk without accounting for death as a competing event results in an overestimation of fracture risk.
Sciatic nerve block may represent an effective complement to femoral nerve block for total knee arthroplasty.
Crysvita is an antibody that blocks fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23), a hormone that causes phosphate urinary excretion and suppresses active vitamin D production by the kidney.
The USPSTF has released recommendations for vitamin D and calcium supplementation for the primary prevention of fractures in community-dwelling adults.
Anti-osteoporotic medications (mainly bisphosphonates) seem to equally prevent bone loss, especially in the lumbar spine, in patients with diabetes compared with patients without diabetes.
Multimodal analgesia after hip or knee arthroplasty may be associated with fewer complications and reduced opioid prescriptions and hospital length of stay, compared with unimodal analgesia.
Results from a meta-analysis found that thiazides have a significant protective effect on fracture risk.
Researchers found that trabecular bone scores may be predictive of future vertebral fractures in patients with axial spondyloarthritis.
Type 2 diabetes may be associated with an increased risk for a major osteoporotic fracture in postmenopausal women.
Treatment of osteoporosis with teriparatide is linked to greater bone formation compared with zoledronic acid.
Gastric bypass surgery was associated with increased risk for nonvertebral fractures.
Compared with growth hormone treatment, 1 year of placebo after attainment of adult height does not decrease bone mineral density in young adults with Prader-Willi syndrome.

Researchers examined the effects of abaloparatide in a subgroup of women older than 80 years from the ACTIVE trial.
Gastric bypass surgery can have damaging effects on bone mass as early as 6 months postoperatively.
Investigators sought to determine whether vertebral trabecular attenuation values measured on routine body CT scans can predict future osteoporotic fractures at multiple skeletal sites.
Treatment with denosumab may increase bone mineral density in older women with primary hyperparathyroidism-related osteoporosis.
Seventy-five randomized controlled trials were included in a meta-analysis comparing DDP-4 inhibitors with placebo and other diabetes medications.
Routine vitamin D and calcium supplementation in older adults is not supported for lowering the incidence of osteoporosis-related fractures.
Among older adults with functional limitations, a long-term physical activity program was not associated with reduced frailty risk.
