Prevalence of Low Bone Mineral Density in Younger Versus Older Women With Distal Radius Fractures
Although distal radius fractures (DRFs) are the most common fractures among younger women, few studies have examined bone health in this age group. We compared bone mineral density (BMD) of younger women (35-50 years) and older women (>50 years) treated for DRFs.

Multifocal Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis in an Adult
Eosinophilic granuloma (EG) is the most common and benign form of the spectrum of disorders referred to as Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). Langerhans cell histiocytosis is primarily regarded as a pediatric disease, with few adult cases of multifocal EG of bone reported.

Is Skin Tenting Secondary to Displaced Clavicle Fracture More Than a Theoretical Risk? A Report of 2 Adolescent Cases
While one traditional indication for open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of clavicle fractures was tenting of the skin because of concern for an impending open fracture, recent review materials indicate that this complication may only be theoretical.

The Pathobiology of Diabetes Mellitus in Bone Metabolism, Fracture Healing, and Complications
Complications and inferior outcomes of fractures in the setting of diabetes mellitus (DM) are well documented. The incidence of DM is increasing rapidly, particularly in an aging and obese population. Thus, the combination of DM and fracture is becoming a serious health problem worldwide.
