Changes in total alkaline phosphatase level after hip fracture: comparison between femoral neck and trochanter fractures.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Biochemical bone metabolic markers are affected by fractures, and total alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is considered one of the bone formation markers. Only a few reports have dealt with changes in bone formation markers during the healing process of bone fragility hip fractures. Despite the difference in the amount of callus formation and bone… (More)
