OBJECTIVE This work was carried out in order to investigate possible relationships between bone turnover rate, as evaluated by bone biomarkers and skeletal mass, as evaluated by bone mineral density (BMD). METHOD Fifty-eight normal women and 30 female patients with osteoporotic fractures were enrolled. Three groups were defined: (1) fertile subjects (n =(More)
This study was carried out in order to evaluate clinical usefulness of cross-linked N-telopeptides (NTx) of type I collagen determination, in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Twenty-six consecutive patients (6 males and 20 females, aged 56.3 +/- 15.0, SD, yrs) with primary hyperparathyroidism were studied in basal conditions and, ten of them,(More)
This study assessed changes in ultrasonometric variables of bone (speed of sound, broadband ultrasound attenuation and stiffness) related to age and years since menopause in a normal Italian female population. Two hundred and thirty-one healthy female subjects, age range 18-78 years, divided into two groups (113 pre-menopausal, age range 18-51 years, and(More)
This study was carried out in order to investigate the early effects of ageing on both broadband ultrasound attenuation and speed of sound through the os calcis. A total of 217 normal subjects, subdivided into 113 fertile women (age range 18-51 years, mean +/- 1 SD=29.4 +/- 8.4 years) and 104 age-matched men (age range 20-49 years, mean +/- 29.3 +/- 7.1(More)
A patient affected by a "limb-girdl syndrome" type of polymyositis shows clinical symptoms and signs of progressively worsening dilatative myocardiopathy. The diagnosis was based on well established criteria, such as the following: EF < 45-55%, left ventricular telediastolic diameter higher than 2.7 cm/mq, and normal wall thickness (L. Mestroni 1994, W.H.(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to determine the time course of the appearance of abnormal Q waves on the electrocardiogram (ECG) over the first 6 hrs of the symptoms of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and to determine what implications, if any, such Q waves have for the efficacy of thrombolytic therapy. Severe myocardial ischemia can produce(More)
