We evaluated the bone mineral density (BMD) of the bilateral femurs in 112 patients with hemiplegia using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in order to elucidate the effect of disuse and immobilization. BMD of the paretic side was significantly reduced compared with that of the nonparetic side in hemiplegic patients (femoral neck 0.582±0.014 g/cm2 versus(More)
Urinary excretion of pyridinium cross-links is one of the biochemical markers for bone resorption in metabolic bone diseases. Efficacy of immunoassay for deoxypyridinoline (D-pyr) for monitoring effects of antiresorptive therapy was evaluated in 44 women with osteoporosis, including 4 patients with asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism. Urinary free(More)
