A new value of proximal femur geometry to evaluate hip fracture risk: true moment arm.

The study showed that evaluation of TMA in addition to HAL, FAL, Theta angle, MCT and LCT can be used to determine of the fracture risk independently of BMD.

Determination of Geometric Indices of the Femoral Bone Density and its Association with Bone Density of Proximal Femur

According to the results, it is unlikely that geometric indices play a major role in determination of hip BMD parameters making their routine use in bone densitometry centers not essential supported.

Association between weight changes and changes in hip geometric indices in the Japanese female population during 10-year follow-up: Japanese Population-based Osteoporosis (JPOS) Cohort Study

The findings suggest that maintaining weight may help retain geometric strength and reduce hip fracture risk, and the greatest changes in most HSA indices during the follow-up were observed in subjects aged aged ≥70 years at all ROIs.

Proximal Femoral Geometry as Fracture Risk Factor in Female Patients with Osteoporotic Hip Fracture

An increase of the femoral neck width could be a proximal femoral geometric parameter which plays important roles as a risk factor for fracture independently of BMD.

The hypothesis of a different pathophysiological mechanism between the two types of hip fractures is supported, as hip axis length and bone mineral density are different between cervical and trochanteric fractures.

It is concluded that BMD is an important determinant of deformity risk in both genders, and together with age explains much of the differences in risk both between the sexes and between individual geographical centers in Europe.

Cross‐Sectional Geometry, Bone Strength, and Bone Mass in the Proximal Femur in Black and White Postmenopausal Women

The results indicate significant ethnic differences in bone density, cross‐sectional geometry, and dimensional variables and suggest that the spatial distribution of bone is arranged in the femoral neck to resist greater loading in black women compared with white women.

Stress distributions within the proximal femur during gait and falls: Implications for osteoporotic fracture

The stress distributions in a normal and osteoporotic femur resulting from loadings representing: (1) gait; and (2) a fall to the side with impact onto the greater trochanter are determined, calling into question several assumptions which serve as the basis for theories on the pathomechanics of bone loss.

Hip fracture rates in Beijing are among the lowest in the world but may be rising rapidly, according to hospital-based estimates, which were validated by interviewing a random sample of Beijing women and surveying hospitals in the counties surrounding Beijing.
