AI Shows Potential for Automating Hip Fractures Diagnosis
Using studies that focused on the development of ML models for diagnosing hip fractures from radiographs, researchers aimed to compare how the diagnostic accuracy of this technology compared to that of expert clinicians. The criteria for study inclusion were a focus on the development of ML models for the diagnosis of hip fractures, specifically using hip or pelvic radiographs, or for predictions of postoperative patient outcomes related to surgery for hip fracture.

Artificial Intelligence promising for diagnosing hip fracture from hip radiographs: JAMA
The findings of this study were published in the Journal of American Medical Association. Strong models made possible by artificial intelligence can be used to construct clinical diagnostic and prognostic tools for hip fractures; however, the effectiveness and potential consequences of these recently established algorithms are yet unclear. Artificial Intelligence for Hip Fracture Detection and Outcome Prediction.

Metabolic Syndrome in APS Associated With Arterial Thrombosis, Cardiovascular Biomarkers
Researchers conducted a cross-sectional study evaluating the prevalence of metabolic syndrome among patients diagnosed with APS, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes. Overall, a 3.5-fold increased risk for metabolic was noted among patients with APS and arterial thrombosis, using the IDF criteria. Bolla E, Tentolouris N, Sfikakis PP, Tektonidou MG.

Disparities Persist in CVD Mortality, Despite Overall Decline
Rural counties and counties with a higher percentage of Black residents continue to experience higher cardiovascular disease mortality despite overall declines in CVD mortality, according to a study published in the Jan. 17 issue of the Journal of the American Heart Association. However, CVD mortality rates were consistently higher among rural counties and counties with a higher percentage of Black residents versus urban counties and counties with a lower percentage of Black residents. “We need to be thinking outside of the box,” a coauthor said in a statement. + 2 others

Heart Disease and Related Deaths Persist in Rural, Poor Areas
While heart disease deaths have decreased overall, they have remained the same in some areas. A study by the University of Georgia found that although fewer people in the Unites States overall are dying of cardiovascular disease, rural, Black and poor counties had higher rates of cardiovascular disease compared with more urban, predominantly white areas.

Heart disease deaths declining, but not for everyone
“Even though the rates of cardiovascular disease are decreasing, the gaps between rural and urban health and counties with more Black residents are not decreasing,” said Heejung Son, lead author of the study and a doctoral student in the College of Public Health. The researchers found that factors such as food insecurity and housing instability also played a large role in counties with higher rates of cardiovascular disease and death.
