OBJECTIVES Several studies have revealed increased bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with knee or hip osteoarthritis, but few studies have addressed this issue in hand osteoarthritis (HOA). The aims of this study were to compare BMD levels and frequency of osteoporosis between female patients with HOA, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and controls aged 50-70 years, and to explore possible relationships between BMD and disease characteristics in patients with HOA. METHODS 190 HOA and 194 RA… CONTINUE READING
