Comparison of 2 frailty indexes for prediction of falls, disability, fractures, and death in older women.
TLDR
The simple SOF index predicts risk of falls, disability, fracture, and death as well as the more complex CHS index and may provide a useful definition of frailty to identify older women at risk of adverse health outcomes in clinical practice. Expand
A Comparison of Frailty Indexes for the Prediction of Falls, Disability, Fractures, and Mortality in Older Men
TLDR
To compare the validity of a parsimonious frailty index with that of the more complex Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) index for prediction of adverse outcomes in older men. Expand
Poor sleep is associated with impaired cognitive function in older women: the study of osteoporotic fractures.
TLDR
Objectively measured disturbed sleep was consistently related to poorer cognition, whereas total sleep time was not, which may suggest that it is disturbance of sleep rather than quantity that affects cognition. Expand
Frailty and risk of falls, fracture, and mortality in older women: the study of osteoporotic fractures.
TLDR
Frailty is an independent predictor of adverse health outcomes in older women, including very elderly women and older obese women. Expand
Vision Impairment and Combined Vision and Hearing Impairment Predict Cognitive and Functional Decline in Older Women
TLDR
To determine the association between vision and hearing impairment and subsequent cognitive and functional decline in community‐residing older women, a large sample of women aged 60 and over is studied. Expand
Association of testosterone and estradiol deficiency with osteoporosis and rapid bone loss in older men.
TLDR
Osteoporosis was more likely in men with total testosterone or estradiol deficiency were more likely to be osteoporotic and BMD testing of older men with sex steroid deficiency may be clinically warranted. Expand
Long‐Term Prediction of Incident Hip Fracture Risk in Elderly White Women: Study of Osteoporotic Fractures
TLDR
To identify independent risk factors for first hip fracture over 10 years of follow‐up, a large number of patients with previous hip fractures were randomly assigned torandomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials. Expand
Oral Phosphodiesterase-5 Inhibitors and Hormonal Treatments for Erectile Dysfunction: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
The aims of the review were to determine the relative benefits and harms of oral PDE-5 inhibitors and hormonal treatments of ED, including the effect of patient characteristics and comorbid conditions on the likelihood of treatment success and the clinical value of hormonal blood testing for identifying treatable causes of ED (for example, hypogonadism) and improving its outcomes. Expand
Hip fracture and increased short-term but not long-term mortality in healthy older women.
TLDR
Short-term mortality is increased after hip fracture in women aged 65 to 79 years and in exceptionally healthy women 80 years or older and Interventions are needed to decrease mortality in the year after hip fractures, when mortality risk is highest. Expand
Screening for, Monitoring, and Treatment of Chronic Kidney Disease Stages 1 to 3: A Systematic Review for the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force and for an American College of Physicians Clinical
TLDR
Evidence on the benefits and harms of screening and monitoring for chronic kidney disease could lead to earlier interventions that improve clinical outcomes, according to this review. Expand
