In this prospective nested case-control study we analyzed the circumferential differences in estimated cortical thickness (Est CTh) of the mid femoral neck as a risk factor for osteoporotic hip fractures in elderly women and men. Segmental QCT analysis of the mid femoral neck was applied to assess cortical thickness in anatomical quadrants. The superior(More)
UNLABELLED The incidence of the most common fracture types in Iceland is reported based on individual data from the Reykjavik Study 1967-2008. Time trend is reported for the major osteoporotic fractures (MOS) 1989-2008. INTRODUCTION This study aims to assess the incidence of all fractures in Iceland, with emphasis on the rate of hip fractures, and compare(More)
A recently described automated microparticle enzyme immunoassay (Abbott IMx CA 125) for cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) was recalibrated by the manufacturer to provide better agreement between the results of the IMx assay and other test methods for CA 125. The recalibrated microparticle enzyme immunoassay (MEIAII) had low imprecision (2.9-11.9%), a low(More)
SUMMARY Based on an extensive cohort study over 25 years, the present study supports the assumption that major osteoporotic fractures can be reasonably predicted from hip fracture rates. INTRODUCTION The construct for FRAX models depends on algorithms to adjust for double counting of fracture outcomes in some models and in others, to estimate the(More)
In a cross-sectional study we investigated the relationship between muscle and bone parameters in the mid-thigh in older people using data from a single axial computed tomographic section through the mid-thigh. Additionally, we studied the association of these variables with incident low-trauma lower limb fractures. A total of 3,762 older individuals (1,838(More)
A tumour-associated trypsin inhibitor (TATI) and the cancer antigen 125 (CA 125) were measured pre- or peroperatively in 30 patients with mucinous ovarian tumours (10 malignant, two borderline and 18 benign) to investigate the separate and combined use of the two markers as a diagnostic tool. In the malignant and borderline cases considered as a whole, TATI(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous work has shown that despite preventive measures, intraoperative contamination of joint replacements is still common, although most of these patients seem to do well in follow-up of up to 5 years. We analyzed the prevalence and bacteriology of intraoperative contamination of primary joint replacement and assessed whether its(More)
Insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) and IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs) recently have been shown to play a physiological role in the female genital system, including the ovarian follicular system. However, little is known about the role of the IGF system in malignant ovarian disease. To assess possible mutual correlations between alterations in circulating(More)
After distension of the hip joint with physiological saline followed by traction, hip arthroscopy was performed in 13 patients (15 hips) with juvenile chronic arthritis. Arthroscopy gave better information about the cartilage than the roentgenograms and gave the same information about the synovial membrane as the operation. This diagnostic procedure should(More)
