INTRODUCTION We aimed to assess the incidence and hospitalization rate of hip and "minor" fragility fractures in the Italian population. METHODS We carried out a 3-year survey at 10 major Italian emergency departments to evaluate the hospitalization rate of hip, forearm, humeral, ankle, and vertebral fragility fractures in people 45 years or older between(More)

METHODS We analyzed the national hospitalizations database at the Ministry of Health to calculate the number of major surgeries in Italian women (mastectomies and quadrantectomies) due to breast cancer between 2000 and 2005, overall(More)

tile form, some limitations have emerged in late onset patients treated with ERT. However it is worthy to hypothesize that combination of two or more therapeutic strategies (ERT/induction of imuno tolerance, ERT/chaperone, ERT/SRT) could be more effective in GSDII patients.

Objectives: We aimed to analyze bone mineralization and the effect of different risk factors for osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Methods: We found 4909 postmenopausal subjects within ≥10,000 records from the ROIS/EMEROS (Ionian and Salento Osteoporosis Registry/Euro Mediterranean Registry of Osteoporosis) registry, a population study carried out in an(More)
INTRODUCTION clinical guidelines recommend to identify and treat people at high risk of fracture. METHODS we have carried out a simulation concerning pharmaco-economic issues in the treatment of severe osteoporosis and particularly those people with previous femoral fragility fractures, assuming that only 13.1% of hip fractured patients had started a(More)
