BackgroundThe prolongation of the post-operative life of cancer patients brings new medical demands. The purpose of this paper is to estimate the total number of women patients with breast cancer who will have disability resulting from surgical treatment from 2000 to 2020 in Japan.MethodsThe estimation was carried out using four indices: the number of cases of women diagnosed with breast cancer, the proportion of surgical operations, the frequency of disability from surgical treatment, and the… Expand

Burden of osteoporosis.
Although most of the osteoporotic fractures are treated by orthopaedic surgeons, many patients with these problems are not diagnosed appropriately and treated for probable osteoporeosis and related mortality and morbidity. Expand
Radiographic and anatomic locations of mental foramen in northern Nigerian adults.
There is almost an equal chance of locating the mental foramen between the mandibular premolars and apical to theMandibular second premolar, of clinical importance with regards to the achievement of effective mental nerve block anaesthesia and the prevention of injury to the mental nerve during surgical procedures.

Hip fracture incidence among elderly Asian-American populations.
Age-adjusted hip fracture incidence was lower for all three Asian-American groups than for whites, and Persons whose Social Security numbers were issued after the immigration Act of 1965 had an adjusted relative risk of 1.37 (95% confidence interval 1.05-1.78). Expand
The location of the mental foramen in a selected Malay population.
The findings indicated the most common position for the mental foramen was in line with the longitudinal axis of the second premolar followed by a location between the first and second premolars. Expand

Evidence-based data that show reductions in the incidence of fractures of 30-50% during treatment has been a major step forward in the pharmacological prevention of fractures, and new avenues for targeting the condition will emerge. Expand

The view presented in this work is from the vantage point of the clinical endocrinologist who applies the research literature to understand adrenal diseases more clearly. Expand
Anterior loop of the mental nerve: a morphological and radiographic study.
Clinicians should not rely on panoramic radiographs for identifying the anterior loop of the mental nerve during implant treatment planning, however, a safe guideline of 4 mm, from the most anterior point of themental foramen, is recommended for implant treatment plans, on the basis of the anatomical findings.

A clinical and anatomical study of the location of the mental foramen in adult Chinese mandibles.
One hundred mandibles of adult Chinese cadavers of both sexes without missing teeth, alveolar bone resorption and malposition of teeth were studied and showed that the location of the mental foramen below the apex of the lower second premolar was the most common. Expand
Pretreatment staging of endoscopically early gastric cancer with a 15 MHz ultrasound catheter probe.
A 15 MHz ultrasound catheter probe is most useful for determining depth of invasion when the tumor is histologically differentiated and endoscopically of the small elevated type early gastric cancer, but it is unreliable in the diagnosis of metastatic lymph nodes. Expand
Serum undercarboxylated osteocalcin is a marker of the risk of hip fracture: a three year follow-up study.
Findings on a larger number of hip fractures that occurred over 3 years in 183 institutionalized women belonging to a large prospective clinical trial confirm that ucOC is a marker of the increased risk of hip fracture in elderly institutionalizedWomen. Expand
