Bone mineral density (BMD) was assessed by dual-photon X-ray absorptiometry at the lumbar spine (L3, L4), the proximal femur and the femoral shaft, and by single-photon absorptiometry at the forearm in 53 patients with complete traumatic paraplegia of at least 1 year's duration and in age- and sex-matched healthy controls. The patients did (n=38) or did not (n=15) regularly perform passive weightbearing standing with the aid of a standing device. Compared with the controls, the BMD of… CONTINUE READING
