Internal Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone 1st Edition

Internal Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone 1st Edition

Osteoporosis affects 28 million people in the United States alone. The  need for stable internal fixation of this type of bone is paramount. Metabolic  bone diseases, such as osteoporosis, osteomalacia, hyperparathyroidism, and
Paget’s disease, are usually associated with osteoporotic or soft skeleton,  especially in the elderly patient. Orthopedic procedures in elderly patients are  costly and with the increasing age of the population these costs will continue
to escalate. Great challenges are often encountered when internal fixation is  needed for fractures or osteotomies in osteoporotic bone.

This book is designed  to present both current clinical techniques and cutting-edge knowledge in
pre-clinical research on the internal fixation of osteoporotic  bone.
