Abstract Several studies clarified the role of different interventions such as vitamine D replacement, denosumab treatment, and vertebroplasty in the prevention and management of falls and fractures. A trial tested the effectiveness of pharmaceutical assistance at the time of discharge, emphasizing the potential benefits for the patients and the health care system. Syncopal episodes frequently lead to hospital admission. A retrospective study evaluated the diagnostic yield of different tests and emphasized the importance to actively seek orthostatic hypotension in older patients. Finally, advances remain modest in the field of dementias.
