UNLABELLED Endocortical remodeling and wall thickness (W.Th.) were measured in femoral neck bone from 12 female fracture cases (81.3 +/- 1.5 years) and 12 sex-matched controls (81.9 +/- 1.9 years). Regionally, osteoid and eroded surface were increased, whereas W.Th. was reduced. These processes likely contribute to cortical bone loss seen in hip fracture. INTRODUCTION Because periosteal expression of alkaline phosphatase was similar between cases and controls, we hypothesized that the… CONTINUE READING
