Periarticular bone mineral content in rheumatoid arthritis and arthrosis of the hip. Dual photon X-ray absorptiometry in 53 cases

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

The bone mineral content (BMC) was determined by dual photon X-ray absorptiometry prior to hip replacement in 22 patients with rheumatoid arthritis and 31 with arthrosis. Compared with the arthrosis patients, the rheumatoids had approximately 20 percent lower bone mineral content in the proximal femur, the lumbar spine, and in the innominate bone superior to the acetabulum.
