BACKGROUND Patients with ulcerative colitis are at risk of low bone mineral density (BMD). Proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) for ulcerative colitis diminishes the risk of bone disease. The aims of this study were to assess the mechanism of low BMD and to measure bone density changes after IPAA. METHODS Twenty patients with IPAA for ulcerative colitis, of mean(s.d.) age 38(9) (range 21-58) years, had measurements of lumbar spine and femoral neck BMD by dual energy X-ray… CONTINUE READING
