Farewell

The Journal of Osteoporosis and Mineral Metabolism (ROMM) was created at the end of 2009 and was presented at the Congress of the Spanish Society for Bone Research (SEIOMM) that year, held in Santander. We have participated from the beginning, both in its creation, start-up and later development, until today. It is the SEIOMM associates who should assess our management. For our part, we believe that a cycle has been completed and that the renewal of the management team is appropriate. For this reason and through this editorial, we say farewell, thanking all those who have trusted and collaborated with us: boards of directors, members of the editorial committee and associates, some who have submitted articles and others who have served as reviewers. A special thanks to our collaborators on a day-to-day basis: Jesús and Concha, publishers of Ibáñez y Plaza; Gabriel Plaza, responsible for the website; and David Shea, translator of the journal, with whom it has always been so easy to work, and who with professionalism and dedication have contributed enormously to make this journal where it is right now. Thank you all.

Impact of dementia on the survival of patients with hip fracture after undergoing total and partial prosthesis

Hip fractures represent a general public health problem due to their high incidence and their impact on mortality and loss of quality of life [1]. In the coming years, with the progressive aging of the population, its incidence is expected to increase, incurring a significant drain on resources [2]. Crude mortality figures after a hip fracture are considered in most studies. An estimated 5% of patients die in-hospital and approximately 20% do so during the first year, depending on the series [3]. However, hip fractures occur in elderly patients who have an associated comorbidity that also influences their survival [4]. The highest mortality rates are reported mainly in the elderly, sick or disabled populations [5]. A recent meta-analysis exploring the magnitude and duration of the excess risk of mortality after hip fracture found the highest risk in the first 3 months after the fracture, and mortality remained high even after 10 years [6]. Excess risk increases with age and, at any age, is higher for men than for women [6].

Influence of breastfeeding on bone mineral metabolism after menopause

Osteoporosis is defined as a skeletal disease in which there is a decrease in bone strength that leads to an increased risk of fracture, usually due to mild trauma [1]. Although any fracture can be observed in clinical practice, with the exception of the skull bones, the most prevalent is the vertebral one and the most serious that of the proximal extremity of the femur [2], given its significant morbidity and mortality [3]. Genetic, anthropometric, nutritional and lifestyle factors [4,11] influence the appearance of fragility fractures or osteoporotic fractures, but also gynecological and obstetric factors [12]. Among them, breastfeeding reportedly exerts an essential reproductive function in women and protects the mother from developing many diseases, such as cancer or diabetes [11-14].

Effect of vitamin D supplementation on aromatase inhibitor-related musculoskeletal side effects for breast cancer: B-ABLE cohort

Survival for patients who suffer estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer has improved dramatically over the years due to the addition of adjuvant hormonal therapy, especially aromatase inhibitors (AI). Letrozole, anastrozole and exemestane are third generation AIs that massively reduce circulating estrogens in postmenopausal women. Although this effect is decisive for survival and the reduction of tumor relapse, it also leads to adverse events and quality of life problems, more prominently associated with the musculoskeletal system [1]. Its use in women as adjunctive treatment for 2-5 years has been correlated with an increased risk of bone loss and fractures [2,3]. Furthermore, AI administration is associated with the appearance and/or increase of arthralgia –described as joint pain– with an estimated incidence of 55% in a previous study by our group [4]. The high rate of arthralgias is of particular concern, since it is reportedly the most frequent reason for interrupting treatment [5,6]. Although practical guidelines have been developed to prevent and manage IA-related bone loss [7], effective treatment of arthralgia has yet to be addressed8.

Humeral fragility fractures in a tertiary referral hospital. Clinical and epidemiological characteristics

The humeral fragility fracture is an important consequence of osteoporosis. It constitutes 5% of all osteoporotic fractures and is the third most frequent non-vertebral fracture in individuals over 60 years of age after hip fractures and those of the distal radius [1]. Compared with the general population, patients with a proximal humeral fracture present a higher mortality rate in the first year, the risk being five times higher during the first month after the fracture [2].
