Study of Atypical Femoral Fracture Cases Coupled in a Multicenter Study

Abstract: : There are several causes of atypical femoral fractures (AFF) in elderly Japanese patients, including longterm bisphosphonate (BP) use or bowed femoral shaft stress fractures, but the available sample size for examining AFF etiology in a single institution is limited. The purpose of this study was to categorize the characteristics of AFF by analyzing the data compiled on patients treated at our hospital and at affiliated institutes. This multicenter, retrospective, observational study included 34 AFF cases (b… Show more

“…There have been reports showing that the long-term use of BPs, steroids, rheumatoid arthritis, femoral lateral bowing, and diabetes mellitus are associated with the risk of AFF [ 1 , 4 , 8 12 ]. A multifactorial etiology, including poor bone quality due to mutual interactions and mechanical stress, appears to be responsible for the occurrence of AFF [ 4 , 6 ].…”

“…There have been reports showing that the long-term use of BPs, steroids, rheumatoid arthritis, femoral lateral bowing, and diabetes mellitus are associated with the risk of AFF [ 1 , 4 , 8 12 ]. A multifactorial etiology, including poor bone quality due to mutual interactions and mechanical stress, appears to be responsible for the occurrence of AFF [ 4 , 6 ]. In particular, patients with severe lateral bowing of the femur are likely to sustain dynamic stress on the femoral shaft due to axial pressure [ 4 ]; as a result, femoral shat fractures are increased [ 2 4 ].…”

“…Displaced AFFs are more difficult to treat than incomplete AFFs. Displaced AFFs also can be treated successfully with IMN and discontinuation of BMAs; however, some earlier reports have indicated that revision was required in 46% (7/17) of patients owing to nonunion/delayed union [ 2 ] and that the mean time to bone union was 11.3 months for displaced AFFs [ 9 ]. Another report demonstrated that teriparatide (TPTD) combined with IMN is advantageous, although TPTD is contraindicated in cancer patients with bone metastasis [ 10 ].…”
