  • Study to evaluate outcomes of different hip replacement techniques using mobile gait analysis system

    Researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) have launched a pilot study using a portable gait analysis mat to determine early outcomes of several different hip replacement techniques. Gait analysis provides information about the way an individual walks.

  • Multiple risk factors, BMD associated with hip fracture in older men

    Older men with an increasing number of specific risk factures combined with decreased bone mineral density at the femoral neck are at elevated risk for hip fracture, according to study findings. Jane A. Cauley, DrPH , professor and vice chair for research in the department of epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, and colleagues analyzed data from 5,876 men not assigned osteoporosis medications at baseline who participated in the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) study, a multicenter, prospective study of risk factors for fractures.
