Sarcopenia y osteoporosis en fractura de fémur


Bardera San Martín, Albert


This project consists of studying and analysing the main risk factors in post-operative femur fracture. To this end, the theoretical part of the work analyses sarcopenia and osteoporosis as two of the factors that trigger femur fractures. Femur fractures occur frequently due to age. In Spain, there are between 4 and 6 cases of femur fracture per 1,000 people over 65 years of age.
Both risk factors are important both in post-surgical treatment and in the prevention of femur fracture and have therefore been analysed in detail in this work. In the experimental part of the project, interviews were conducted out with patients who were at the time hospitalised for femur fractures at the Hospital Comarcal del Alt Penedés. The type of fracture and the surgical technique were identified together with the orthopedic surgeons. Later, the patient's medical history was reviewed to find out the patient's background and was completed with an interview with the patient to make a nutritional assessment and determine the most appropriate type of physical exercise for the patient. These two interventions have an impact on sarcopenia and osteoporosis.
