However, there are few data available only on the relationship between serum hydroxyvitamin D levels and recovery after surgery for hip fracture. AIM: The authors secondary hyperparathyroidism the vitamin D supply of patients with hip fractures.
Patients with better condition after surgery showed higher hydroxyvitamin D levels p The association between vitamin-D deficiency and mortality as well as the positive correlation between serum hydroxyvitamin D levels and better postoperative condition confirm the importance of proper vitamin D supply in the prevention and cure of hip fractures, what is more in the increase of the chance of survival.

AIM: To compare parathyroid hormone levels measured by two assays in correlation with vitamin D supply. METHOD: Parathyroid hormone and hydroxi-vitamin-D were determined in patients 31 patients with chronic renal failure without renal replacement therapy, 36 patients treated with peritoneal dialysis and 37 patients treated with hemodialysis.
RESULTS: Good correlation was found between results of the two parathyroid hormone methods, but the intact parathyroid hormone levels were higher than the biointact values. The frequency of serious secondary hyperparathyroidism deficiency was higher in the peritoneal dialysis than in the hemodialysis group.
Intact parathyroid hormone levels were different in dialysed patients having vitamin-D-deficiency and insufficiency, and the difference was higher for secondary hyperparathyroidism biointact than intact values.
Negative correlation was detected between biointact parathyroid hormone and hydroxivitamin-D in the hemodialysis group.
