To understand the differences among reference curves for bone mineral density (BMD) for Chinese, Japanese, and American Caucasian women, we measured the BMD at the anteroposterior (AP) lumbar spine (L1–L4), lateral lumbar spine (L2–L4), hip (including the femoral neck, trochanter, intertrochanter, Ward’s triangle, and total hip), and ultradistal forearm by(More)
3D-reconstruction images of the structures of lateral aspect of the ankle and subtalar joints were produced using plastination to make equidistant serial sections of 1.2 mm in thickness. A SGI workstation was employed to reconstruct the structures of the ligaments of the lateral aspect of ankle and subtalar joints in three dimensions. Reconstructed(More)
The relationship between the levels of gonadotropic hormones and bone metabolism in Chinese adult women is unclear. Our research shows that a significant positive correlation exists between the levels of gonadotropic hormones and various bone turnover indicators. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) has been found to have a greater influence on all types of(More)
The reference values for bone turnover markers (BTMs) have a significant role in the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of metabolic bone disease. This study proposes that the peak value of bone mineral density and the trough value for the BTM curve can be used to determine the reference range of BTM. The aim of this study is to determine the reference(More)

This paper reported the results of a matched (1:2) case-control study of 218 pairs on Essential Hypertension in the countryside of Sichuan Province in 1989. Conditional Logistic regression technique was used in data analysis. It was showed that Essential Hypertension and borderline Hypertension was associated with heart rate, family history of Hypertension,(More)
