Several studies have demonstrated that cancellous bone mass and architecture are preserved in postmenopausal women with primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT). To investigate the mechanism(s) that could account for this observation, we analyzed features of bone formation in 19 postmenopausal women with PHPT by bone histomorphometry. The results were compared(More)
We performed a comprehensive analysis of the relationships between histologic indices in the iliac crest (cancellous bone volume, trabecular structural indices, cortical width, and core width) and bone density in the spine, hip, and wrist in 81 patients with various metabolic bone diseases including osteoporosis, osteomalacia, hyperparathyroidism, and(More)
While noninvasive studies of bone mass and turnover in blacks and whites abound, histologic evaluations are very rare. We have performed a comparative bone histomorphometric study of iliac biopsies from 55 healthy, premenopausal women including 21 blacks (mean age 33.4 + 1.2 years) and 34 whites (mean age 32.5 + 0.8 years) of comparable age, weight, body(More)
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that patients with mild primary hyperparathyroidism are protected against postmenopausal (PM) loss of cancellous bone architecture. To achieve this, we compared bone structure and turnover in iliac bone biopsies from three groups: 16 women with mild primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT; 58.2 +/- 2.2 years,(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association between recurrent pre-eclampsia and long-term cardiovascular hospitalisation. METHODS This study identified cardiovascular hospitalisations up to 25 years after pregnancy for all women who delivered between 1989 and 2013 in Québec, Canada. Exposures included recurrent and non-recurrent pre-eclampsia in women with two(More)
