Fracture Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone
With the Clinical Priority Program “Fracture Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone” AO Foundation puts focus on improved care for the ever increasing group of elderly people suffering fragility fractures:
Documentation of outcome and analysis of failures or complications related to osteoporosis generates input and fundamental understanding on the topic.
New modalities for the assessment of bone quality will allow us to select the most appropriate therapy options which are specifically designed for the treatment of osteoporotic fractures.
Methods to communicate information to surgeons and to provide valid models for research and teaching are also included in the program.
All components are tied together in an integrated network with defined ways of exchange and interaction of information to enhance synergies between the individual projects.
Thus, the contribution of each project to the overall goal of the program is achieved.
