      Borgen, Tove Tveitan; Bjørnerem, Åshild; Solberg, Lene Bergendal; Andreasen, Camilla; Figved, Wender; Hübschle, Lars Michael; Stenbro, May-Britt; Basso, Trude; Dahl, cecilie; Stutzer, Jens-Meinhard; Frihagen, Frede; Eriksen, Erik Fink; Nordsletten, Lars; Hansen, Ann Kristin; Apalset, Ellen Margrete; Gjertsen, Jan Erik; Lund, Ida (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Summary: Determinants of trabecular bone score (TBS) and vertebral fractures assessed semiquantitatively (SQ1–SQ3) were studied in 496 women with fragility fractures. TBS was associated with age, parental hip fracture, ...
    • Grip strength in men and women aged 50–79 years is associated with non-vertebral osteoporotic fracture during 15 years follow-up: The Tromsø Study 1994–1995 

      Søgaard, Anne-Johanne; Magnus, Jeanette H.; Bjørnerem, Åshild; Holvik, Kristin; Ranhoff, Anette Hylen; Emaus, Nina; Meyer, Haakon E; Strand, Bjørn Heine (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Summary In 50–79-year-olds who participated in the Tromsø Study (1994–1995), the risk of non-vertebral osteoporotic fractures during 15 years follow-up increased by 22% in men and 9% in women per 1 SD lower grip strength. ...
    • High prevalence of vertebral fractures and low trabecular bone score in patients with fragility fractures: A cross-sectional sub-study of NoFRACT 

      Borgen, Tove Tveitan; Bjørnerem, Åshild; Solberg, Lene Bergendal; Andreasen, Camilla; Brunborg, Cathrine; Stenbro, May-Britt; Hübschle, Lars Michael; Froholdt, Anne; Figved, Wender; Apalset, Ellen M; Gjertsen, Jan-Erik; Basso, Trude; Lund, Ida; Hansen, Ann Kristin; Stutzer, Jens-Meinhard; Dahl, Cecilie; Omsland, Tone Kristin; Nordsletten, Lars; Frihagen, Frede Jon; Eriksen, Erik Fink (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Purpose: Norway has among the highest incidence rates of fractures in the world. Vertebral fracture assessment (VFA) and trabecular bone score (TBS) provide information about fracture risk, but their importance have not ...
    • The Norwegian Capture the Fracture Initiative a stepped wedge cluster randomized 1 controlled trial of a Fracture Liaison Service model of care: The NoFRACT Trial Protocol 

      Andreasen, Camilla; Solberg, Lene Bergendal; Basso, Trude; Borgen, Tove Tveitan; Dahl, Cecilie; Wisløff, Torbjørn; Hagen, Gunhild; Apalset, Ellen M; Gjertsen, Jan-Erik; Figved, Wender; Hübschle, Lars Michael; Stutzer, Jens-Meinhard; Elvenes, Jan; Joakimsen, Ragnar Martin; Syversen, Unni; Eriksen, Erik Fink; Nordsletten, Lars; Frihagen, Frede Jon; Omsland, Tone Kristin; Bjørnerem, Åshild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-12-07)
      Importance: Fragility fracture is a major health issue because of the accompanying morbidity, mortality, and financial cost. Despite the high cost to society and personal cost to affected individuals, secondary fracture ...
    • Post-Fracture Risk Assessment: Target The Centrally Sited Fractures First! A Sub-Study of NoFRACT 

      Borgen, Tove Tveitan; Bjørnerem, Åshild; Solberg, Lene Bergendal; Andreasen, Camilla; Brunborg, Cathrine; Stenbro, May-Britt; Hübschle, Lars Michael; Froholdt, Anne; Figved, Wender; Apalset, Ellen Margrete; Gjertsen, Jan-Erik; Basso, Trude; Lund, Ida; Hansen, Ann Kristin; Stutzer, Jens-Meinhard; Omsland, Tone Kristin; Nordsletten, Lars; Frihagen, Frede Jon; Eriksen, Erik Fink (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The location of osteoporotic fragility fractures adds crucial information to post‐fracture risk estimation. Triaging patients according to fracture site for secondary fracture prevention can therefore be of interest to ...
