Osteoporosis

Damage Index in 110 Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.151
Synopsis: 
This study determined damage in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus using Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology (SLICC/ACR) damage index. Musculoskeletal system and osteoporosis were the most common manifestations of damage index in our patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the prevalence of Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics/American College of Rheumatology (SLICC/ACR) damage index among systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and to investigate the prevalence of each component of SLICC/ACR damage index.

Bone Mineral Density Measurements of Women in a Black African Population in Lagos, Nigeria Using Accudexa Bone Mineral Density Assessment System: A Preliminary Study

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.374
Synopsis: 
This study was conducted to justify the need for a bone mineral density(BMD) database for African women in Nigeria whilst testing the appropriateness of using the African-American database as a reference. The preliminary results suggested that they might be inappropriate.

ABSTRACT

Objective: No normative database for bone mineral density (BMD) exists in Nigeria. This study aims to provide the basis for the creation of a normative reference BMD database for women in Nigeria while assessing the appropriateness of applying normative data for African American women to Nigerian females.

Is Imatinib Protective Against to Osteoporosis? - A Comparative Study in Terms of Bone Densitometry on Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia Patients and Healthy Volunteers

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.447
Synopsis: 
Previous studies have shown that imatinib affects bone metabolism in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients. We aimed in this study to investigate whether the inhibition of tyrosine kinase is a new potential target against osteoporosis which is an important issue for public health.

A Comparison of Serum Lead Status among Elderly Osteopaenic Patients, Elderly Osteoporotic Patients and Healthy Controls

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.103
Pages: 
248-53
Synopsis: 
It is proposed that in conditions where the bone turnover rate is high, mobilization of lead from bone to blood will occur. Mobilization of lead from bone to blood in elderly osteopaenic patients and elderly osteoporotic patients was similar to that in healthy controls.

ABSTRACT

Objective: It is proposed that in some conditions such as pregnancy and osteoporosis where the bone turnover rate is high, there is mobilization of various minerals including lead (Pb) from bone to blood. This study aimed to determine if there were any differences in serum Pb levels among elderly osteopaenic patients, elderly osteoporotic persons and healthy controls.

Predicting Osteopenia and Osteoporosis with a Simple Test: A Preliminary Work

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.253
Pages: 
158–64
Synopsis: 
Use of simple serum based tests to classify healthy individuals from patients with osteopenia/osteoporosis is gaining interest. It seems that the “Osteo-Pars” equation has reasonable benefit in discriminating healthy individuals from osteopenia/osteoporosis patients.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The occurrence of osteopenia and osteoporosis is a major problem of ageing. For assessing the severity of bone loss, bone mineral density (BMD) measurement is the gold standard. Because of the limitations of BMD, use of simpler serum-based tests to classify osteoporosis/osteopenia patients is gaining interest. In this preliminary work, we aimed to discriminate between healthy individuals and osteoporosis/osteopenia patients through a simple serum-based equation.

Hip Fractures: The St Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital Experience

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.070
Pages: 
138–41
Synopsis: 
A significant increase in the recorded incidence of hip fractures and a significant decrease in mortality were noted between two time periods at St Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital in Jamaica.
 
ABSTRACT
 
Objectives: To study the outcome of hip fractures in a cohort of patients from two different time periods (2002–2003 and 2006–2008).
Methods: Patients treated for hip fractures at the St Ann’s Bay Regional Hospital (SABRH), which provides orthopaedic care for the parishes of St Ann, St Mary and Portland, were retrospectively analysed between 2002–2003 and 2006–2008.
