Our aim was to evaluate bone status in boys with haemophilia using dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and quantitative ultraSonography (QUS), and in addition, to compare these two methods with the use of biochemical markers of bone turnover. Twenty-six boys with a mean decimal age of 12.08 ± 4.44 years were included in the study which included a DXA scan at lumbar spine and radial, as well as tibial QUS. Serum levels of soluble receptor activator of nuclear factor κB ligand (sRANK-L… CONTINUE READING
