      IMPORTANCE: While vitamin D supplementation and exercise are recommended for prevention of falls for older people, results regarding these 2 factors are contradictory.

      OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of targeted exercise training and vitamin D supplementation in reducing falls and injurious falls among older women.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: A 2-year randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled vitamin D and open exercise trial conducted between April 2010 and March ...

      BACKGROUND: Few prospective studies have investigated the biomechanical risk factors of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury.

      PURPOSE: To investigate the relationship between biomechanical characteristics of vertical drop jump (VDJ) performance and the risk of ACL injury in young female basketball and floorball players.

      STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3.

      METHODS: At baseline, a total of 171 female basketball and floorball players (age range, 12-21 years) participated in ...

      Bone characteristics of the humeral shaft and distal radius were measured from 64 female tennis and squash players and their 27 age-, height-, and weight-matched controls with peripheral quantitative tomography (pQCT) and DXA. The players were divided into two groups according to the starting age of their tennis or squash training (either before or after menarche) to examine the possible differences in the loading-induced changes in bone structure and volumetric density. The used pQCT ...

      Bone characteristics of the humeral shaft and distal radius were measured from 64 female tennis and squash players and their 27 age-, height-, and weight-matched controls with peripheral quantitative tomography (pQCT) and dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The players were divided into two groups according to the starting age of their tennis or squash training (either before or after menarche) to examine the possible differences in the loading-induced changes in bone structure and ...

      Despite the excellent performance in clinical practice and research, the dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is restricted by the inherent planar nature of the measurement and the inability to discriminate between trabecular and cortical components of bone. Recently, a new peripheral tomographic scanner (Norland/Stratec XCT 3000) was introduced for versatile measurements of human long bone characteristics in vivo, including trabecular and cortical density (TrD and CoD, respectively), ...

      BACKGROUND: The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate replacement of a torn anterior cruciate ligament with either a bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft or a two-strand semitendinosus-gracilis autograft to compare the results of clinical testing, patient satisfaction, activity level, functional status, and muscle strength.

      METHODS: Fifty-six patients with a torn anterior cruciate ligament were enrolled in a prospective, randomized, controlled study. Twenty-eight underwent ...

      High peak bone mass in early adulthood is an important protective factor against osteoporotic fractures in later life, but little is known about the effects of exercise on growing bone. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to determine at which state of maturity (Tanner stage), the areal bone mineral density (BMD) differences between the playing and nonplaying arms of junior tennis players become obvious, and to clarify in each developmental stage which training and background ...

      OBJECTIVES: Chronic anterior knee pain is a common complication following intramedullary nailing of a tibial shaft fracture. The source of pain is often not known nor is the reason for a simultaneous decrease in thigh muscle strength. Anterior knee pain has also been reported following an anterior cruciate ligament rupture. No previous investigation has assessed whether weakness of the thigh muscles is associated with anterior knee pain following intramedullary nailing of tibial shaft ...

      Bilateral bone characteristics of the humerus (proximal, shaft, and distal sites) and radius (shaft and distal sites) in 12 former Finnish national-level male tennis players (mean age 30 years) and their 12 age-, height-, and weight-matched controls were measured with peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT). The pQCT variables analyzed were bone mineral content (BMC), total cross-sectional area of bone (Tot.Ar), cross-sectional area of the marrow cavity (M.Cav.Ar), cortical ...

      We studied clinical performance of serum TRACP 5b and other bone turnover markers, including S-CTX, U-DPD, S-PINP, S-BALP, and S-OC, for monitoring alendronate treatment. TRACP 5b had higher clinical sensitivity, area under the ROC curve, and signal-to-noise ratio than the other markers.

      INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical performance of serum TRACP 5b (S-TRACP5b) with that of other markers of bone turnover in the monitoring of alendronate ...

      To first test the possible effect of gender on the responsiveness of growing rat skeleton to mechanical loading, 5-week-old littermates of 25 male and 25 female rats were subjected to either free-cage activity or treadmill training for a period of 14 weeks (experiment 1). Using peripheral quantitative computed tomography (pQCT) and mechanical testing of the femoral neck, we observed female rats exhibiting a clearly lower responsiveness to external loading than male rats (+3.0% vs +25% in ...

      There were an estimated 1.66 million hip fractures world-wide in 1990. According to the epidemiologic projections, this worldwide annual number will rise to 6.26 million by the year 2050. This rise will be in great part due to the huge increase in the elderly population of the world. However, the age-specific incidence rates of hip fractures have also increased during the recent decades and in many countries this rise has not leveled off. In the districts where this increase has either ...

      Of all spontaneous tendon ruptures, complete Achilles tendon tears are most closely associated with sports activities (1-3). Schönbauer (3) reported that 75% of all ruptures of the Achilles tendon are related to sports. In Plecko & Passl (2) the number was 60%. In our material of 430 cases, the number of sports-related Achilles ruptures was very similar (62%), while only 2% of ruptures of other tendons were sports-related (P < 0.001) (1). Also, the majority of Achilles reruptures ...

      INTRODUCTION: Routinely collected hospital discharge data are a valuable and widely used source of information when assessing the incidence of sports and other injuries in epidemiological studies. However, in order to ensure the usefulness of a hospital discharge register for scientific purposes, the coverage and accuracy of the database should be evaluated. In this study, cruciate ligament rupture was used to assess the coverage and accuracy of the Finnish National Hospital Discharge ...

      This prospective 5-year follow-up study of 64 adult female racquet sports players and 27 controls assessed the changes in the playing-to-nonplaying arm bone mineral content (BMC) differences to answer three questions: (1) Are training-induced bone gains lost with decreased training? (2) Is the bone response to decreased training different if the playing career has been started before or at puberty rather than after it? (3) Are the possible bone changes related to the changes in training? ...
