The effects of strontium ranelate on the risk of vertebral fracture in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis.
Treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis with strontium ranelate leads to early and sustained reductions in the risk of vertebral fractures.
Bone quality--the material and structural basis of bone strength and fragility.
This review discusses advances in knowledge regarding the composition and structure of bone, the modeling and remodeling of bone, the formation of bone during growth and its reconstruction in adults,
Risk of new vertebral fracture in the year following a fracture.
The data indicate that women who develop a vertebral fracture are at substantial risk for additional fracture within the next year, and the presence of prevalent vertebral fractures increases this risk.
Strontium ranelate reduces the risk of nonvertebral fractures in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis: Treatment of Peripheral Osteoporosis (TROPOS) study.
This study shows that strontium ranelate significantly reduces the risk of all nonvertebral and in a high-risk subgroup, hip fractures over a 3-yr period, and is well tolerated.
The Effect of Mechanical Loading on the Size and Shape of Bone in Pre‐, Peri‐, and Postpubertal Girls: A Study in Tennis Players
The aim of this study was to determine whether the effects of loading were site specific and depended on the maturational stage of the region, with periosteal apposition before puberty accounting for the increase in the bone's resistance to torsion and endocortical contraction contributing late in puberty conferring little increase in resistance toTorsion.
Osteoporosis in Men

Men with vertebral fractures often have hypogonadism or illnesses with few clinical features that should be considered with a high index of suspicion (alcoholism, myeloma, malabsorption, primary hyperparathyroidism, haemochromatosis, Cushing's disease).
Exercise Before Puberty May Confer Residual Benefits in Bone Density in Adulthood: Studies in Active Prepubertal and Retired Female Gymnasts
The prepubertal years are likely to be an opportune time for exercise to increase bone density and as residual benefits are maintained into adulthood, exercise before puberty may reduce fracture risk after menopause.
