The case control study was conducted in Baghdad city for the period from March 1, 2019 to June 1, 2019. This study aimed to evaluate why Uric acid and magnesium are necessary to monitored during and after femur fractures. The current study included a comparison of a total of patients with various femoral fractures (35 patients) with a group of healthy people (35 person) who did not show any symptoms of chronic diseases who were blood donors. Where all the information was collected from patients reviewing the fracture hallways in Yarmouk General Hospital in the city of Baghdad, such as the patient's age, gender, smoking and living conditions, as well as the body mass index and other information. Three ml blood samples were collected from all the healthy and healthy men in the study to estimate the levels of magnesium and uric acid using the tests available in the local market. The study demonstrated that elevated uric acid was found in 28.57% of patients with femur fractures while 57.14% of healthy individuals were with elevated level of UA with a significant difference (P<0.01).
The study revealed that 46.66% of male patients with femur fractures affected by elevate UA compared with 15% of females (P<0.05). Thestudy indicated that the serum magnesium level was elevated significantly in patients with femur fractures affected as compared with healthy ones (305.7±17.3 versus 221.7±10.2 Mg/dl) (P<0.01). The study found that Mg+ level was elevated more frequently in females wile uric acid was reduced in females and this lead to the knowledge that femur fracture was occurred more in females than in males. The study showed negative correlation between magnesium and uric acid in patients with femur fractures. It was concluded that elevated uric acid was found in low rate of patients with femur fractures Mg+ level was elevated more frequently in them.
