Specifically, the aims of the current systematic review were to determine the differences in aBMD
and BMC accrual between gymnasts and controls during the growing years and to describe different factors that could influence bone accrual.
The relationship of disordered eating attitudes with 24-hour urine cortisol levels, bone turnover markers, femoral neck aBMD
, and L1-4 vertebral aBMD
values is shown in Table 1.
in the femur was extracted from the CT data following the guidelines by Khoo et al.
No between-group differences were observed for whole-body or leg aBMD
, BMC, lean body mass, postural balance, gross motor skill, YYIR1C performance, and jump length, respectively (all p > 0.05) (Table 2).
In patients with (ABMD
) and a history of RCES, the HRT II RCM showed an abnormal epithelial basement membrane protruding forward into the corneal epithelium, the presence of epithelial microcysts and normal superficial epithelial cells and stroma.
Lumbar spine, femoral neck and forearm bone mineral content (BMC) and areal density (aBMD
) were measured using dual X-ray absorptiometry; lumbar spine and femoral neck apparent density (BMAD) were calculated.
Bone mineral content (BMC, g), areal bone mineral density (aBMD
, g/[cm.sup.2]) and bone area ([cm.sup.2]) were determined at the lumbar spine (L1-L4).
With its mission of "recovering hearts and saving lives," Abiomed (NASDAQ: ABMD
) develops, manufactures and markets advanced medical technologies designed to assist or replace the pumping function of the failing heart.
The children underwent thoracolumbar spine x-rays and lumbar spine areal bone mineral density (LS aBMD
) evaluation within 30 days of beginning glucocorticoid therapy.
), Danvers, Mass., has announced an update on its European strategy to drive growth by establishing recovery as the goal for patients experiencing acute cardiac events.
Former exercisers of an 18-month intervention display residual aBMD
benefits compared with control women 3.5 years post-intervention: A follow-up of a randomized controlled high-impact trial.
BMC and aBMD
of the femoral neck, lumbar spine (L2-L4), and total body were assessed by a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry technique (Lunar[R] DPX-L).
