  1. 1. Bone turnover markers and prediction of bone loss in elderly women

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Janaka Lenora; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bone turnover markers; DXA; elderly; osteoporosis; scintigraphy; Bone mineral density; quantitative ultrasound of the calcaneus; bone loss;

    Abstract : Around 70,000 osteoporosis-related fractures occur in Sweden annually and approximately half of the women in western world will sustain a fragility fracture after the age of 50 years. Fracture preventive efforts require the identification of individuals who are at high risk. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic and Environmental Influences on Bone and Fractures

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helene Wagner; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; heritability; twin study; osteoporotic fractures; vertebral fractures; balance; bone mineral density; bone area; bone markers; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : Sweden and Norway have the worldwide highest incidence of osteoporotic fractures. As these fractures constitute a tremendous and growing problem, primary prevention is of great importance. The principal causes of an osteoporotic fracture are a fall and a fragile skeleton. READ MORE

  3. 3. Osteocytes as indicators of bone quality - multiscale structure-composition characterisation of the bone-implant interface

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Furqan A. Shah; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 3D printing; apatite; biomaterials; biomineralisation; bone; bone quality; canaliculi; CoCr; collagen; electron beam melting; electron microscopy; implant; interface; in vivo; lacuna; micropetrosis; osseointegration; osteocyte; Raman spectroscopy; surface modification; Ti6Al4V; titanium; ultrastructure; whitlockite;

    Abstract : By virtue of certain design features, bone anchored metal implants can be made to elicit a strong initial osteogenic response, i.e., the amount of bone formed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bone Mineral Density Determination in Children. Evaluation of a novel method and application to Duchenne muscular dystrophy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann-Charlott Söderpalm; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adolescents; age- and gender-matched; Becker; bone densitometry; bone markers; bone mineral density; calciotropic hormones; children; DXA; DXL; Duchenne; glucocorticoids; muscular dystrophy; normative; reference values; skeleton;

    Abstract : Aims: The overall aims of this thesis were to evaluate the dual-energy X-ray and laser (DXL) method for bone densitometry measurements of the calcaneus in children, to provide reference data for bone mineral density (BMD) in the heel bone in young children and to apply the DXL technique to patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) and conduct a survey about bone health of DMD patients. Study populations and methods: The DXL Calscan method was modified and adapted for measurements in children and applied to bone densitometry in all subsequent studies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bone density, bone geometry and bone development in young men - the importance of pubertal timing and fracture history

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Darelid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; peak bone mass; bone mineral density; bone development; fracture; young adulthood; men;

    Abstract : Background and objective: Peak bone mass, the maximal bone mass attained in young adulthood, is an important factor of the lifetime risk of developing osteoporosis. The aim of this thesis was to study the development of bone mineral density (BMD) and bone geometry around the time of peak bone mass in men, and also to investigate the association between pubertal timing, fracture history, bone turnover markers and BMD and bone geometry in young men.
