21. IOF > For Health Professionals > Evidence-based Guidelines For The Prevention Of
Guidelines collection on osteoporosis fracture reduction, compiled by the International Osteoporosis Foundation.
Evidence-based guidelines for the prevention of osteoporosis-related fractures The importance of an evidence-based approach to clinical practice is now widely accepted and the application of these guidelines provides a means by which best practice can be shared both within and between countries. Because some aspects of the prevention of osteoporotic fractures are country-specific (e.g. variations in diagnostic resources or in availability of different therapeutic options), development of individual evidence-based guidelines for every country is important. Evidence-based guidelines around the world: references and links to full text Development and appraisal of evidence-based guidelines In order to achieve their full potential, the development of guidelines for the prevention of osteoporosis- related fractures should fulfil certain criteria. Many of the guidelines listed above have been appraised according to the AGREE Collaboration guidelines (Appraisal of Guidelines for Research and Evaluation), an instrument which provides a framework for systematic quality assessment of guidelines. For further information about AGREE and the appraisal scores, see below The process for developing evidence-based guidelines has been well defined by the AGREE collaboration:
  • It requires the co-operation of groups of experts from relevant professional groups together with representatives from appropriate lay organizations, and it is particularly important that patients and their carers are adequately represented.

Vitamin A: A Role in Macular Degeneration and Fractures
Q: A:
First, let me explain macular degeneration for our readers who aren't familiar with the condition. The macula is a very sensitive area located in the center of the retina. The retina, of course, is the tissue at the back of the eye that converts the light and images we see into electrical impulses and sends these nerve signals to the brain, where we interpret them visually. Macular degeneration refers to the deterioration of the macula, which can lead to vision loss. Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD) occurs in two forms: dry and wet. Dry ARMD occurs when the light-sensitive cells in the macula slowly break down, gradually blurring central vision in the affected eye. As dry ARMD gets worse, you may see a blurred spot in the center of your vision. Over time, as less of the macula functions, central vision in the affected eye can be lost gradually. You may notice you have difficulty recognizing faces, or need more light for reading and other tasks. Dry ARMD generally affects both eyes, but vision can be lost in one eye while the other eye seems unaffected. One of the most common early signs of dry ARMD is drusen. Drusen are yellow deposits under the retina. They often are found in people over age 60. Your eye care professional can detect drusen during a comprehensive dilated eye exam.

Part 10 Part 11 Part 12 The leg consists of two bones, of which the one is much more slender than the other at one part, but not much more slender at another. These are connected together at the foot, and form a common epiphysis, but they are not united together along the line of the leg;and at the thigh they are united together and form an epiphysis, and this epiphysis has a diaphysis; but the other bone in a line with the little toe is a little longer. Such is the nature of the bones of the leg. Part 13 Part 14 Part 15 Part 16 Part 17 But if the other bone (fibula?) of the leg be broken, less powerful extension is required, and yet it must not be neglected, nor be performed slovenly, more especially at the first bandaging. For in all cases of fracture this object should be attained then as quickly as possible. For when the bandage is applied tight while the bones are not properly arranged, the properly arranged, the part becomes more painful. The treatment otherwise is the same. Part 18 Part 19 Part 20 Part 21 The swellings which arise in the ham, at the foot, or in any other part from the pressure, should be well wrapped in unscoured and carded wool, washed with wine and oil, and anointed with cerate, before bandaging; and if the splints give pain they should be slackened. You may sooner reduce the swellings, by laying aside the splints, and applying plenty of bandages to them, beginning from below and rolling upward; for thus the swellings will be most speedily reduced, and the humors be propelled to the parts above the former bandages. But this form of bandaging must not be used unless there be danger of vesications or blackening in the swelling, and nothing of the kind occurs unless the fracture be bound too tight, or unless the limb be allowed to hang, or it be rubbed with the hand, or some other thing of an irritant nature be applied to the skin.

33. Calcium And Vitamin D For Preventing Hip Fractures [Mar 1997; 37-4]
Study on the use of calcium and vitamin D for preventing hip fractures.

Calcium and vitamin D for preventing hip fractures
One of the topics covered in the Bandolier conference on osteoporosis was that of supplementing the diets of elderly at-risk populations with calcium and vitamin D. Some health authorities have large populations of elderly nursing home residents who are mobile but fragile, and formulating a policy on this may be important to such an authority.
There is accumulated evidence that positive calcium balance - promoted by adequate calcium and vitamin D intake - is beneficial in the prevention of bone loss in older people. Stronger bones should result, and stronger bones should be more resistant to fracture if older people fall.
The question is whether positive action to ensure adequate dietary calcium results in fewer broken bones. Chapuy and colleagues [1] have undertaken a randomised controlled trial to test that. The Chapuy study has been criticised because it is a selected group, of women only, which might not reflect the whole elderly population (the average age, for instance, was in the mid-80s), but it probably does reflect any similar UK population of elderly but mobile people living in homes.
Randomised trial
The trial took place in France in a selected group of elderly women ranging in age from 69 to 106 years at entry. Randomisation was between 1.2 grams of elemental calcium (as an aqueous suspension of tricalcium phosphate) plus 20 ug vitamin D3 daily at lunch time and matched placebos. Vitamin D3 was included in the trial because dairy produce in France is not fortified with vitamin D.

c) 1995, Willis Lamm, TrailBlazer Magazine
By Willis Lamm
Reprinted with permission of TrailBlazer Magazine for non-commercial use. There are 206 bones in the human body, and every fall brings with it the possibility of breaking one. While most of the time we dust ourselves off and climb back on with little more than bruised muscles and bruised egos, there are a few instances where fractures do occur, which can prove to be serious emergencies. Whether in the barn or out on the trail, it is important to understand the physiology of fractures and take the correct steps early on after the accident. What happens during a fracture: When a fracture occurs, a portion of a bone may chip or crack away or the bone may be completely broken. In any event, the bone fragments will damage nearby tissues and blood vessels, causing swelling and blood clots in the area of the fracture. Nearby tissue cells which lose their blood supply will die. Undamaged tissue cells nearby the fracture site will respond to the injury by rapidly dividing in an attempt to form a collar of tissue surrounding the fracture site. New bone is generated from this mass of tissue in order to eventually heal the damaged bone. If the fracture site is mishandled early after the injury, more soft tissues could be damaged which could significantly prolong healing. If the bone ends are disturbed, the disruption to the normal healing process could result in a permanent disability.
