FDA Reports Metal-on-Metal Hip Implants Cause Soft Tissue Damage
For many years metal-on-metal hip devices have failed at surprisingly high rates and the question being asked remains: "Is there a lack of clinical benefits with metal-on-metal bearings?" Recent updated information from the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) claims that metal-on-mental hip implants can cause soft-tissue damage and pain, possibly leading to more surgery to replace the implant. Metal hip implants were created to be more sturdy than traditional implants, but instead have become a serious cause of worry following many user discomforts and safety problems...

Post hoc analysis: Reduction in risk of clinical fractures after a single dose of zoledronic acid

More recently, data regarding the duration of effect of single doses of zoledronic acid on BMD and markers of bone turnover have raised the question of whether zoledronic acid administration at intervals of longer than 1 year res...

The failures may lead to expensive and highly painful replacement operations called, "revision operations." The Food and Drug Administration approved DePuy's ASR implant cup and metal ball for use in America in the year 2005. There are approximately 140,000 people in America who have received a DePuy metal on metal hip implant.

Prescription pitfalls: why do patients not always take their medicine?
MEDICAL MATTERS:On a recent house call I was reminded how loosely some people comply with medication. My patient went rooting in a press to check the name of a new medication she had been put on by a hospital doctor. I noticed large quantities of creams and several boxes of osteoporosis medication stacked on the shelf. These medications were part of her routine monthly prescription. After some gentle probing it emerged that she hadn’t used the osteoporosis drug for over two years. The cream was still used but only intermittently; a tube a month was clearly in excess of her current needs.

Wrong fat in pregnancy diet 'may make kids fatter'
Conclusion This study of 293 mother-child pairs finds that the mother’s blood levels of n-6 PUFA during late pregnancy influence her child’s body fat levels, with higher blood levels equalling higher child fat levels. The researchers say that n-6 PUFA, derived from plant oils are known to have an influence on fat development. Therefore, they say the observed association may suggest ‘prenatal PUFA exposure could be linked to risk of offspring obesity’. However, though this study has merits, including a representative population sample and carrying out detailed assessment of both the mothers and children, it is diffi...

At practice that week, though, his knee buckled. Concerned, his parents took him to the doctor near their North Carolina hometown, and it became clear that Fletcher wouldn’t be playing on Saturday...
