Relationships between Myocardial Injury, All-cause Mortality, Vitamin D, PTH, and Biochemical Bone Turnover Markers in Older Patients with Hip Fractures
This study examined the relationships between myocardial injury as indicated by serum cardiac troponin I (cTnI) elevation, 25 hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D], and PTH status and biochemical markers of bone metabolism in older patients with hip fracture (HF). In 238 consecutive patients (mean age 81.9 ± 7.8 yr; 72% women) with low trauma HF, serum concentrations of cTnI, 25(OH)D, PTH, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, osteocalcin, bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP), and urine excretion of free...[Show more]
