Bone mass, bone markers and prevalence of fractures in adults with osteogenesis imperfecta

Summary Still little is known about the manifestations of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) in adults. We therefore initiated this study of bone mass, bone turnover and prevalence of fractures in a large cohort of adult patients. We found a surprising low prevalence (10%) of osteoporosis. These patients, however, expressed the most severe disease. Purpose To characterize bone mineral ...

Bone pain and extremely low bone mineral density due to severe vitamin D deficiency in celiac disease

Case report A 29-year-old wheelchair-bound woman was presented to us by the gastroenterologist with suspected osteomalacia. She had lived in the Netherlands all her life and was born of Moroccan parents. Her medical history revealed iron deficiency, growth retardation, and celiac disease, for which she was put on a gluten-free diet. She had progressive bone pain since 2 years, ...

Influence of menopause on mandibular bone quantity and quality in Japanese women receiving dental implants

Summary The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of menopause on bone mineral density and bone width of the mandible. Results indicate that menopause affects the bone quality and quantity of the partially edentulous molar region of the mandible, which should be considered in dental implant treatment for postmenopausal women. Introduction The recovery of oral function ...

Influence of sagittal balance and physical ability associated with exercise on quality of life in middle-aged and elderly people

Quantitative ultrasound in relation to risk factors for low bone mineral density in South African pre-menopausal women

Summary The study describes the association between risk factors and quantitative ultrasound bone measures in black and mixed-race pre-menopausal South African women. Despite some differences between the two study groups, the findings generally lend support to the use of ultrasound for epidemiological studies of bone mass in resource-limited settings. Introduction Quantitative ...

Male transient hip osteoporosis: are physicians at a higher risk?

Summary Data of 17 male patients with a final diagnosis of transient osteoporosis (TO) of the hip seen at the radiology department of a university hospital over a period of 7 years were retrospectively studied. Comparison of the proportion of doctors among TO cases with that among other hip joint pathologies revealed a significant difference. Purpose The objective of this study is ...

Psychological state, quality of life, and body composition in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis in Lithuania

Summary The objective of this study was to determine body composition, physical activity, and psychological state in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Fat mass, lean mass, water mass, and basal metabolic rate are lower, self-reported physical activity and risk factors of fractures are higher, and cognitive functions were worse in osteoporotic patients than in controls. ...

Infiltrating giant cell tumor in a case of Paget’s disease of bone

Giant cell tumor (GCT) of the bone, also called osteoclastoma, is a rare complication of Paget’s bone disease. We report a patient from Southern Italy who developed a GCT infiltrating the neighboring tissues. The natural history and the therapeutic outcomes of this unique complication of Paget’s bone disease are presented.

Incidence of hip fracture in Kermanshah, Iran

Summary The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence of hip fracture in Kermanshah, Iran. 161 cases (88 men and 73 women) were recorded. The annual age-standardized incidence rates were 181.1/100,000 in men and 214.6/100,000 in women. Incidence rate of hip fracture was less than in Western countries. Introduction Hip fracture is the most serious complication of osteoporosis, ...
