Abstract: Background: Bone quality, bone strength, and bone remodelling are important in many orthopaedic conditions and can have an impact on fracture incidence, bone healing, implant failure, and different outcome aspects. There is relatively sparse information on fracture incidence and mortality both for all fractures compiled and for some of the individual fracture locations. In elective orthopaedic surgery, systematic screening for bone quality is rarely performed today. Aim: The aim of the ... more
