Analyse du profil anthropométrique, osseux et cognitif des patients en fonction du siège de la fracture post-chute : une étude transversale

Abstract : Introduction: Body mass index (BMI), bone mineral density (BMD) and cognitive status could play a role in the fracture site. The purpose of this study was to determine whether patients have a particular anthropometric, bony, and also cognitive, profile, depending on the fall-related fracture site. Methods: 106 women aged 55 and over, who experienced a fall with a fractured hip (n=30), humerus (n=28), wrist (n=32) or ankle (n=16) were included in this cross-sectionnal study. BMI, BMD and cognitive functions, as well as several risk factors for falling, were compared between these different fracture sites. The significant variables were used to perform a principal component analysis (PCA). A comparison was then made between the different profiles identified by the PCA. Results: The fracture sites differ significantly by their education level, BMI, BMD, fear of falling, and the number of errors in the Trail Making Test B. The PCA revealed the existence of 4 separate profiles (namely P1 to P4). Contrary to P2 and P3, P1 and P4 mainly include humerus fractures and few hip fractures. They have a higher BMI and BMD than P2 and P3. P2 includes more ankle fractures but fewer humerus and hip fractures than P3. P2 and P3 have a similar BMI but P2 has less pronounced bone fragility, better cognition and less risks of falling than P3. Conclusion: There does not appear to be a typical profile characterizing fall-related fracture sites, but rather several profiles for identical fracture sites.
