35 Fractures in the Elderly
PATHOPHYSIOLOGY Osteoporosis Remodeling does not occur in trabecular bone, therefore metaphysis is prone to fracture Pathologic Fractures Decreased muscle mass Postural changes Decreased vibration sense and proprioception Increased reaction time Visuoperceptual decline Impaired mobility

36 Fractures in the Elderly
PRIMARY PREVENTION SECONDARY PREVENTION History and Physical Examination FRAX and DEXA Dietary modification and exercise regimen Review of medications that may cause dizziness, syncope, etc Regular eye exams Safer home: Slip guards and hand rails Removing objects on floor Storing items in easy to reach cabinets Improve lighting in the home Goal  rapid return to activities for independent living Diagnosis History and PE X-ray CT scan Treatment Immobilization Surgical stabilization Joint replacement National Center for Injury Prevention and Control  CDC Injury Center

37 Fractures in the Elderly
TERTIARY PREVENTION Stiffness – daily active or passive ROM exercises of adjacent joints Contractures – periodic changes in position Swelling – elevation of limb Pressure sores – daily inspection and padding of contact points Functional impairment – gradual re-introduction of ADLs Merck Manual of Geriatrics. Fractures

38 FRAX: WHO Fracture Assessment Tool

39 Senile Cataract a vision-impairing disease characterized by gradual, progressive thickening of the lens It is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world today Age is an important risk factor for senile cataract.

40 Clinicals Work-up Laboratory Studies- screening process to detect coexisting diseases (eg, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiac anomalies) Imaging Studies- ocular imaging studies (eg, ultrasound, CT scan, MRI) History- decrease visual acuity, increase glare, mild to moderate myopia, monocular diplopia P.E.- slit lamp examination

41 Treatment The definitive management for senile cataract is lens extraction. No drug is available that has been proven to prevent the progression of senile cataracts. Medical therapy is used preoperatively and postoperatively to ensure a successful operation and subsequent visual rehabilitation.

42 Dextroscoliosis Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine is curved from side to side or front to back, and may also be rotated Dextroscoliosis is a scoliosis with the convexity on the right side

43 Symptoms Pain Uneven musculature on one side of the spine
A rib "hump" and/or a prominent shoulder blade, caused by rotation of the ribcage in thoracic scoliosis Uneven hip and shoulder levels Asymmetric size or location of breast in females Unequal distance between arms and body Clothes that do not "hang right", i.e. with uneven hemlines Slow nerve action (in some cases)

44 Investigation Standard method for assessing the curvature quantitatively is measurement of the Cobb angle, which is the angle between two lines, drawn perpendicular to the upper endplate of the uppermost vertebrae involved and the lower endplate of the lowest vertebrae involved

45 Management The conventional options are, in order: 1. Observation
2. Bracing - for example the Milwaukee brace 3. Surgery

TYPE OF CARE PROBLEM RECOMMENDATIONS WELLNESS {promotive, preventive} Patient maintains a balance diet Last immunization: unrecalled For immunization: Tetanus, Pneumococcal, Influenza Encourage ROM exercises daily MEDICAL Osteoporosis with Fracture , R hip Senile Cataract, OU With episodes of BP elevations For Rehabilitation therapy For orthopaedic consult For Ophthalmologic consult For Hypertensive work-up PSYCHOSOCIAL Patient is unable to go out of the house because of her condition. She said that she goes to different churches everyday before the accident. It is also one of the reasons why she could not follow-up at the OPD clinic.
