OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the association of clinical risk factors and bone density with prevalent fractures in prepubertal children. METHODS Bone mineral density (BMD) in lumbar spine, femoral neck and total body bone was assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Clinical data on risk factors were collected by measurement and questionnaires. RESULTS Of 324 children, 32 (10%) had a prevalent fracture (upper limb 69%). Most fractures were due to low-energy falls… CONTINUE READING
