UNLABELLED We prospectively examined vBMD and structural bone parameters assessed by QCT among participants of the InCHIANTI study over a 6-yr follow-up. Periosteal apposition occurred both in men and women. Endocortical resorption causes bone loss in older women despite periosteal apposition. INTRODUCTION To address the hypothesis that age-related changes in BMD and bone geometry may be different in men and women, we prospectively examined volumetric BMD (vBMD) and structural bone parameters… CONTINUE READING
