Does sarcopenia predict change in mobility after hip fracture? A multicenter observational study with one-year follow-up
(BioMed Central, 2018-03-05)
Background: Patients with hip fracture frequently have sarcopenia and are at great risk of loss of mobility. We have investigated if sarcopenia predicts change in mobility after hip fracture. Methods: This is a prospective, ...
Bones, blood and steel: How bioelectrical impedance analysis is affected by hip fracture and surgical implants
(Journal of Electrical Bioimpedance, 2017)
Introduction: Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is in widespread use, but there is uncertainty about its validity in patients with metal implants or after acute hip fracture and surgery. We aimed to investigate the ...
Sarcopenia in patients with hip fracture: A multicenter cross-sectional study
Background: Sarcopenia is prevalent in older persons and is a risk factor for falls, fractures, and mortality. The aim of this study was to determine a) the feasibility of determining sarcopenia in patients with acute hip ...
